Minstrel shows and minstrelsy appeared to be a phenomenon of Americaís distant past. Not so, you donít have to look too far to find examples of this disgraceful period in history. The modern-day minstrel show is seen in our daily lives.

The incarnation of this shameful episode in American history is repeated over and over in fried chicken commercials, debt programs and a host of other commercials that portray African-Americans in a negative light.

This is funny by showing the true character of this black guy. He may be funny, but I would not eat his chicken, it doesn't appear to be claan and wholesome. It might appeal to blacks, we will wait and see how well his "chieffy degree" works out for him in his new venture.

If you were to replace the words black, minority, and hispanic, with white you'd have the makings of what THEY would portray as a clan meeting. The hypocrisy and blatant biased of some of these "educators" is something to behold, and the gov't just falls right in line to placate them. Wouldn't want to risk be called racist or bigots. The ironic part is they ARE not only racist and bigots. They're hypocrites to boot! They talk about racial, educational, and employment equality, but they are guilty of WORSE of the SAME BEHAVIOR! When do we get to bitch about racial profiling, predjudice, and bigotry? When to we get to riot and loot our OWN NEIGHBORHOODS in protest of preferential treatment to MINORITES, with no fear of prosecution? The irony is BLACK AND WHITE, no pun intended.
