10 December 2008 | by DuqNcverSee all my reviews

Take all the tongue & cheek humor of Richard Pryor and throw it in the toilet. This program has no problem with reversing the racist jokes of the KKK (which are revolting) and make everyone else look like a total idiot... taking two steps back from racial equality.

Dave Chapelle managed to make outrageous sketches on Comedy Central making fun of *everyone*, the writers of this show just strive to hate everyone who isn't black.

I dream of a day where people can just be people... and being Irish, my people were slaves too... so GET OVER IT.

David, you're better than this... you're just being a HATE puppet.
