Ha..! You apparently haven't seen Dave Chappele's skit: "The n-i-g-g-a-r Family?"

He threw in a bunch of black and white stereotypes in the skit but in a reverse role. Very funny!

Yep, if you watch it on TV now you won't hear the N word. You need to rent it if you want to see the original.

It's impossible to watch with all the bleeps. Go rent it or buy it for the original version. It's a funny movie and with all the bad words in todays movie it's silly this movie gets bleeped.

I love the ignorance being spouted by some in here.

If anybody truly believes that every single Black person is a staunch advocate of political correctness, then their only exposure to Black people is probably news channels. By that logic, all Christians are like the god-warrior lady on Trading Spouses.

The PC movement within the Black community is a minority that happens to be very vocal. Nothing more, nothing less.

Blazing Saddles could've easily been made today. Ever seen mob movies? Scorcese, Coppola, Tarantino? There are BLACK PEOPLE who watch these movies. I'm one of them along with all of my immediate family. That includes my grandmother who actually did experience racism growing up in Alabama. I don't know if she has seen Blazing Saddles, but she does watch movies that contain racism and has no problem doing so.

Of course, none of this ignorance will cease to exist until people stop acting like Blacks are a foreign alien species that needs to be observed from afar.
