Comedy1Some may say Black women are just too sensitive when they complain about being the butt of Black comedian jokes. Many Black women will strongly disagree with this sentiment. It has become too easy for Black male comedians to use Black women as the nucleus of their non-original witticisms.
Most people love a good laugh. True comedians tell stories that mirror their lives without belittling a particular segment of society. It is obvious that several Black male comedians either have lost their creativity for garnering laughs or never had the talent. Playing the dozens is elementary school tactics. Quick wit is what makes for a talented comedian; but defaming the character of Black women to garner gaffes is tasteless and lacks true talent.
Plenty of stereotypes used in comedic acts are laughable. No one is that naïve. Without laughter, this world would shrivel up and die. However, when the majority of Black male comedian material is to drag Black women through the proverbial mud, that's when those comedians should reassess their careers. Most importantly, these Black male comedians use their wives' and daughters' "Blackness" against them, tainting their wives and daughters' reputations forever. Although they may "joke" about their wives' and daughters' attitudes, skin tone, hair texture, etc., most of the world will view their wives and daughters as having terrible or scary attitudes, unattractive skin tone, and horrible hair texture. Where's the humor in that?
Just like a hip hop or rap artist who can only use four-letter words for lyrics, Black male comedians who use Black women as trash heaps in their jokes are jokes themselves. So, here is some serious advice for those jokers: write some originals material or retire because we must be honest, your jokes have gotten very old.
