I love that they have a debate that sounds like actual talking points people have on these types of issues, and then Frank comes along and throws a wrench in the debate with an absurd POV.

It's funny how Mac and Dennis' belief on "what is racist" reveals so much about their characters. Mac committed a terrible social taboo in wearing blackface, but it was in the sincere attempt to try and portray the character of Murtaugh accurately. There's nothing exaggerated about his appearance, and he tries his best to mimic Danny Glover's voice. Dennis, on the other hand, is very much focused on appearances. He is conscious of the social taboos of playing a blackfaced character, and completely avoids it. But then, feeling he's safe from any racist labeling, chooses to give Murtaugh a stereotypical black voice, when Danny Glover sounds nothing like that. Now, in Dennis' defense, he just views the world in stereotypes, which is why he also gives Riggs a ridiculous Australian accent, in spite of the fact that it sounds nothing like Riggs. He does this just because Mel Gibson was raised in Australia, so he figures "I'll give him an Aussie accent." As a sidenote, Dee is worse than both of them, because she did both blackface and a ridiculous "black" voice for her character. Then of course there's Frank, who doesn't give a fuck and just comes up with the most ridiculous Indian stereotype he can come up with.

Danny was only doing his Penguin impression though, throughout the shark scene
Now that is an interesting insight. Love how one can see these kinds of analysis on yt only in iasip clips. Didn't see that in other sitcom clips

I appreciate the fact that they are making fun of ignorant people, the real low lives in society.

Dennis makes actually a good point. The Wayne's Brother did 'White face' (with some stereo typical White girl), and no one seems to care. I didn't care at all. I still don't care. Why are people so "sensitive"? Why are some people always complain?
Reubenofthedead (4 months ago)
Yeah, but the movie sucked, and I found that offensive.
Chris Grudge (8 months ago)
Black face existed because blacks weren’t allowed to be in movies (and when it got a bit better, not allowed for lead/speaking roles). In modern times blacks aren’t proportionally represented in Hollywood or any non white race for that matter. The white chicks example is as asinine as asking why there isn’t a white entertainment channel, you pretty much have to void all context for those things to be equal.
Sean Appel (1 year ago)
Well, that and the fact that, especially back then, it wasnt hard for a white person to be in a movie, but rare for a black person to be in a movie. So instead of hiring black actors, people would hire white actors and dress them up as black people.

*Wayans plus the difference is in the pretext to it. Blackface was solely to dehumanise and mock the black people already brutalised at the time and whiteface, if you can even call it that, wasn't ever a thing done by masses of black people for the purpose of degrading whites. Apart from that I pretty much agree with you

+Stout Shako So many people argue that 'anything can be funny' which is true; but it depends who you are laughing at and how talented a comedian you are. The Always Sunny guys get that, hence why they're so funny and not Family Guy.

I remember watching the first episode and getting outraged and disgusted because it seemed like the show was saying HEY LOOK THIS GUY GOT RAPED BY OTHER GUYS ISN'T THAT FUNNY. It wasn't until I forced myself to watch through more episodes (I really wanted to get to the episodes with Danny DeVito so I could see the Troll Toll happen) that I finally GOT it. The joke wasn't that rape is funny. The joke is that Dennis's friends are so awful, they set him up to get raped just out of pettiness. Which would still be horrible if Dennis himself wasn't just as disgusting of a person. It's a wonder how this show is still chugging along with such horrid, despicable characters, but they're its greatest asset. It's got some of the most clever writing simply because they can cover literally any horrible topic, and still make it funny just because you're having so much fun laughing at their misfortune.

Haha, where's the bit where Frank mentions James Earl Jones in Star Wars "Great blackface!" and Dennis goes "James Earl Jones has a black face! James Earl Jones is a black man!" and Frank says, "He was Darth Vader, they took off the mask, the guy was white!"

Technically his character underwent pigmentation surgery in order to gain the darker skin tone. Kudos to Downey for playing one of the most complex characters in modern comedy. A dude playing a dude disgused as another dude!

Well, nowadays, if you use ebonics or black voice speak, people would just normally assume that you are doing an impression of someone. It is nowhere near as racist when you actually paint your skin to copy a different race.

actually, Theroux... Devito is about as liberal as they come. Supported Bernie Sanders. MacElhenney has two moms and is an advocate for gay rights. They all show up at LGBTQ pride events. Think you're a little bit wrong, bud.

None of them are racist or liberal, same applies to all of them in real life. They play their characters well both in the show and real life.
