FTA: "You don't think it's also because white people like you forced black people into a system of economic servitude that destroyed families and has created a cycle of poverty?" Missing interjected. "When are you going to blame yourselves for the crime statistics?"

Oh, no, you di'in't.

Agreed--sort of. Why do people have a problem with him? He is actually pretty funny.

Can a white comic ventriloquist with a black man puppet make jokes about race on a TV show?

Yes!! As long as WHITE PEOPLE are the bad guys in the jokes.

Jesus, I was hoping for something a little racier. Just more of the same old "hate Whitey" shtik.

Bah. He found a loophole and still takes the safe way out.
Granted, I wouldn't do it if I was in South Africa either.

You're that familiar with South African comedy?

You might doubt whitey is keeping the black man down in America, but in South Africa there is no doubt about it.

His whole act is weak. It's just Jeff making racist, bigoted, unpopular comments and "jokes" come from the mouth of a racist, stereotyping puppet, and then acting surprised and shocked at what the "puppet" said.

I loathe Jeff Dunham. He's a racist, unfunny piece of shiat who plays to the lowest common denominator. He's not even a very good ventriloquist. His lips move like crazy.

I'm pretty sure he said 'childrens' in the show, while the official recording has him saying 'children'. Childrens is MUCH funnier.

Well, I don't have any black friends in the FB sense, but I can think of a few that fit within my Dunbar number (when counted as people I would be comfortable sharing drinks with at a bar in the Hong Kong international airport terminal).

He probably also thinks it's racist that most folk don't like black coffee. Also that the terms 'black hat' and 'white hat' are racist.  Also, everything else because white guilt.

chester's youtube videos are awesome, and this is yet another recent thing helping me learn south african music is awesome. in one of them they chant "you can run and shoot at the same time" and i'd be curious to know more about that one, but google ain't showing much.

Interestingly enough, Jeff has a show in Dubai some time in the near future.
Would be interesting to see if/what he does the Achmed routine.

Wait, seriously?  All South Africa's problems? We're talking about people who never managed to invent writing, or the wheel, or not eating each other.  They just might have some problems that can't be blamed on whitey.

Think you might wanna read up on African history a little bit there, bucko. Keep in mind a good deal of what Europe considers it's own ideas came from Africa, particularly the Moors. Plus cannibalism was (and to some extent still is) mostly centralized to the central areas, and reserved almost solely for the warlords (Vice did an interesting doc on that one). Africa may never have been perfect, but Europeans certainly made it much much worse.

My complaint about him is his Achmed schtick is dated as hell, a reminder of how pathetic AMerica got in the post-9/11 world. He became as relevant as Yakov Smirnov(excluding the reversals) the moment we had our "whoops, our bad"  about Iraqi WMDs.

It's pretty much why he is going. For some reason, the Achmed character is very popular in certain parts of the region.

I certainly hope nobody thought that I was implying that. Even Jeff, himself, was surprised at how well recieved Achmed was in the Middle East, though.

Wasn't about you specifically. I wasn't going to say anything at first, but it kept coming up.

If anyone could use a cathartic laugh about terrorism it's Arabs. He'll probably be a hit.

Jeff Dunham...does anyone remember his skit from 20 years ago? It was the same shiat without the middle eastern puppet. He's been recycling his own material for years.

He criticized Koch's performance on a popular blog called Africa is a Country.

How can we expect Americans to know that Africa is not a country when Africans don't?
