Ah, the '70s. When unfiltered racism on TV was king.

I would propose to you that there was less racism in the 70's....He lived in a delux apartment in the sky. A self made man was George. He had white friends too.Now the world is all pc and stuff, but it's almost worse than it was back then. A shame really.

Sherman defined himself. And I will fight to the death anyone who tries to take away from his role as a proud black man.

*on his terms, I meant to say

But before televised "blackness" had been calibrated by certain people. I liked him on Amen also when growing up.

I've loved this actor ever since seeing him portray "Gitlow" in the B'way musical "Purlie"...

Back then, they didn't tip toe around race issues. The Jeffersons, All in the Family, Maude. Now, everybody is color blind and all the white people have a token black friend.

In the 70's, shows like "Archie Bunker', "The Jeffersons" & "Maude" treated Racism with humor and in actuality the racism was done in such a manner that the racist was seen as being behind the times. Think about it, Archie Bunker was bigoted but how was he portrayed? He was portrayed as a blue-collar factory worker who was hard working and ignorant and was always arguing with
'Meathead" who was a college educated liberal. George Jefferson, the black man who Archie Bunker was constantly arguing with, was a successful businessman who had more success than Archie.

Personally I liked the 70's shows

RIP. I watched a shiatload of The Jeffersons on Crackle last night. Still makes me laugh.

Damn I'd thought to even look the guy up any time one of the cast passed away. I just assumed he'd probably already went first.

Florence was on Southland and they had a bit of fun with her & Regina King's acting history.

Gordon Borden, the Mormon doorman, sends his respectful regards.
