THIS IS ONE GUY THAT IS WORTH A POST/TRIBUTE IN MY BLOG. BEING A FATHER OF TWO GIRLS MYSELF, I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT THAT CONNECTED WITH ME LIKE BERNIE MAC DID IN THE BERNIE MAC SHOW.

SURE, I KNOW ABOUT THE KINGS OF COMEDY AND THE “I AINT SCARED OF YOU MOTHA F’ERS”. BUT THE MAC SHOW WAS ALL BROTHA, NO CHASER.

HIS “I HATE YOU M’FERS” LINE IN HOW TO BE A PLAYER IS LEGENDARY TO ME. IT’S EXACTLY HOW I FEEL ABOUT CERTAIN SEGMENTS OF MY PEOPLE SOMETIMES. AND I’M UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT IT. JUST LIKE THE MAC MAN WOULD BE.

BERNIE MAC,

R.I.P

Abortion man? Seriously, if your trying to commit career suicide, your well on your way. I almost think you made that to show, no, I don’t know that the hell you were thinking.

I do know this, it wasn’t funny. I now put you in the category of your two ignorant younger brothers Marlon and Shawn. You guys will do anything to make a buck. You’ve got more talent then this Damon. At least I thought you did. I actually enjoyed My Wife and Kids and your characters on In Living Color.

But this? I believe the internet is the next TV (for me it has been the past 3 years). Your ruining your chance of being a trailblazer in the concept with this offensive garbage.

I got wind of your stupidity from reading another blog about your stupid abortion man episode. I surely won’t make any plans to stop by on my own after viewing that crap.

Your now in my Aun’t Hillary’s Cabin category of Negro’s.

Someone commented, “is there a shortage of black actors in Hollywood?”. Ben Stiller’s new flick stars Downey in black face, basically. OK, that’s not right. the picture online certainly looks as though they hired the very best in make-up artistry because I gotta admit, he looks like a brotha.

BUT, ………………….. I don’t know how this is gonna go over. I don’t mind it actually. If it’s not demeaning at all to black men. We need to develop thicker skin on SOME issues. This seems like one of em. (But not topics involving the N word, nooses, drug dealer, police brutality, etc..)

****UPDATE*** 8/16/08

i CHANGE MY GODDAMN MIND. The way they marketed this movie, it doesn’t sit well with me. The fact that the use of “retard” word in the movie got/is getting more protest and commentary then the use of modern day black face in the movie is unsettling to me.

GET A BROTHA TO PLAY A BROTHA. BLACK FACE IS DEMEANING IN ANY WAY YOU TRY TO PACKAGE IT.

Don’t know wtf I was thinking in that earlier post…
