Default "N" word offensive? Do NOT click!

This was funny then, it's funny now. Could this be televised today?

Probably not.

Seemed like he used that word in just about every episode. Different times back then, no way that would fly today.

I consider Dave Chappelle one of the funniest comedians ever. He's up their with Pryor and Carlin. With that said, Dave had to go to Africa to get away from a $50M contract and what went with it.

A few weeks ago saw they had episodes of "Roots" on the TV and actually used the N word.

I do noticed that in war films they omit/bleep the word, Jap, which today is considered a racial slur? To me it's just the shorting of the word Japanese. It like calling the British, Brits.

Back about 74 my cousin married a 100% Jap. (born and lived his first 23 years in Tokyo) They are still together, live in NYC and produce two very smart cute kids. I'm quite friendly with him and we had this conversation and he has told me that that word is not offensive or a slur. Therefore its a word I will use.

If you are not Japanese and you are offended by the word "Jap", wouldn't that be cultural appropriation?

No, about twenty years ago, they just threw it out of the school libraries and burned all the copies.

Problem solved.
