    Very Good comedy! But you'll never get an interview from the Media by thinking this way. Oh yea, by the way, 99% of us feel this way which you would never believe watching the news in the US.

    For those that DONT understand why the ripe tomato joke is funny and real Asf it’s simply because most places in the hood have a food desert and there aren’t many grocery stores with fresh produce. So it’s a bunch of delis, corner stores, dollar stores, and stuff that mostly only be selling processed food that aren’t as fresh as middle class and upper class arenas. This food isn’t good for the people. Obvi humans need fresh and healthy food options that aren’t processed and saturated in preservatives. The foods you eat can even take a toll on a persons mental state over time... to relatively small degrees though (just a fun fact that’s not fun but quite unfortunate, but still a fact)

    It's really sad that there are so many comedians that use race difference for material and so many people relate to their jokes. Too bad humanity will never be color blind.

    yeah whatever!!!! if i went onstage as a white middle aged man and said im with a younger black female, first i would be classed as a pervert with her being younger, but mainly i would be classed as a racist for even mentioning her blackness. why is it ok the other way round?! as long as your black and/or female you can say whatever you want. (proof of the complete myth of white privilege).

    I've had 3 mixed black girlfriends All 3, white mother... father that left when they were young... white step-father that works hard... black uncle that used to touch them (or worse) I kid you not. All 3 of them. The 3rd time, I almost took the words out her mouth when she hesitated to tell me about her uncle... who is still part of her family despite everyone knowing he touched her when she was 12. Step up to the plate, black fathers... and step away from the plate black uncles.

      She's jokingly stereotyping white & black people. It makes it easier to talk to & get to know what people who are different from us are like. Humor is a great equalizer. We laugh at ourselves, including the stereotypes, they laugh at themselves & we realize we basically want the same things. Respect, love, safety, acceptance, equality, freedom, opportunity.
