>>13796774 Yeah, probably. He was a Chicago cop, he'd need one.
Remember that time that there was a racist cop who busted Carl's son Eddie for pretty much no reason and Carl talked to him and the cop was like, "Black kids wouldn't have been in that neighborhood if they weren't up to no good."
Family Matters could have some serious storylines sometimes when they weren't doing stories about Urkel building time machines and robots and shit.
>>13796838 Older black sitcoms were pretty well done in how the showed life as a black family. you had episodes that tackled racism, but it was never a key topic to the series. and family matters was going by that same path. Urkle was comical relief and a nerd/geek before the whole concept of nerd culture ever crawled out of hot topics ass.
>>13796838 It's moments like those that made me watch Family Matters. I really disliked how Urkel dominated the later seasons. This show was ahead of its time and it didn't preach about issues.
>>13797616 Exactly. Remember the episode in Fresh Prince when Will and Carlton got arrested for driving a Mercedes that belonged to their dad's business partner? It made you think when Carlton stubbornly believed in the system while Will pointed out that being black was why they were pulled over.
Carlton asked his dad about it and Uncle Phil's response about "I thought about that the first time I was pulled over".
It's amazing how black sitcoms changed since the 80's and 90's. I grew up on Gimme a Break, Cosby, Benson, Family Matters, Fresh Prince, Hanging with Mr. Cooper. You can't have shows like this anymore because the sociopolitical climate is toxic.
>>13796295 >Myra was my biggest crush as a kid >Her actress died soon after the show ended >Steve was too pussy to hit it >In real life Jaleel was trying to hit but her boyfriend came on set and checked him
>>13797872 Yeah I remember hearing the news about that as a kid. Had no idea she dated Malcolm Jamal Warner and he was by her bedside.
You know, if it weren't for shows like this, I wouldn't have been exposed to how wrong bigotry is. I grew up under a working class white dad who absolutely despised minorities. My town was near white barring the token Native American or Hispanic. The episode where Laura wanted a class to teach Black history and some jerkwad wrote the N word on her locker shocked me. At the time, I thought teenagers would move beyond petty shit like that.
>>13797854 >You can't have shows like this anymore because the sociopolitical climate is toxic.
Society has effectively done a 180 in regards to race relations to where now race identification and self-segregation are not only expected, but imposed under threat of being denigrated a sellout, Uncle Tom, coconut, or race traitor. Victim entitlement is now an excuse for low expectations and self-defeat, tearing down one's self along with others who try to overcome their own community's self-imposed limitations, and it's all thanks to counterproductive race politics like affirmative action.
>>13797883 >Native American or Hispanic >or Hispanic >race
You had one Native American and one Native American with a Spanish surname.
The liberal narrative has gotten so ugly and obsessive with political correctness and race pandering that now rampant stereotyping and willful ignorance, including the dated eugenist policy of labelling Hispanic a race not unlike Italian, Polish, or Irish were until half a century ago, around the time affirmative action disrupted and has since gradually reversed the assimilation process, are considered standard in mainstream low-information society.
>>13797854 >It made you think when Carlton stubbornly believed in the system while Will pointed out that being black was why they were pulled over.
Yeah, it couldn't have been due to the fact that they were teenagers or anything. This reminds me of when I had a black roommate in college who got his taillight busted by doing something stupid, and he didn't get it fixed for three months because he was lazy. Then when he got a ticket from it he kept crying about muh racism.
>>13799061 I can't speak for everyone, But as a black man I certainly did. Modern day urban neighborhoods are a fucking cesspool that will swallow you alive if you let it. I grew up around people that were so closed minded it honestly made me want to slam my head against the wall. If you watched, read, or listened to anything that wasn't made by black people you were labeled a coon or uncle tom. Trying to get an education? "nigga, all them big words are for crackers". I could go on all day but the point is holy fuck black culture is backwards as shit these days and it's only getting worse.
>>13799069 I think that is a fair compromise for her sexy ass being alive. Steve was so pussy. Laura was alright but Myra would have done ANYTHING he asked. She was pushing up on him so hard it was ridiculous.
>>13799135 You actually do sound like an uncle tom or somebody who isn't black. I grew up in the ghetto and while a ton of people I knew died or were in and out of jail I didn't get shit on for reading, building computers, gaming or anything like that. I was actually told by a lot of the dudes on the block that I wasn't allowed to gangbang and they wished they hadn't started.
>>13799135 >one or two niggas in middle/high school bullied you >black culture a shit guys!
It's 2016, can we stop this meme that black people don't value education? There's a lot of black youth that think school is dumb, but lots of teenagers think school is dumb. But being educated != you not black is honestly a coon meme.
