    I always wondered how the public took the "racy" humor of these shows. If a person is black, half black, Hispanic or Mexican, so they see the humor of these shows and don't get upset with their content. I know that when a black comedian is onstage and makes jokes about blacks, the audience laughs like mad. In fact, one of the judges on Last Comic Standing is black and a terrific comedian. He praised numerous black comedians for their performance on the show.

    Just to let everyone know.........wife and I don't like hearing the "n" word, just like we don't like hearing the "f" word at all, but if a comedian uses the "n" word onstage or in a tv show, we understand that it's just humor. Thing is, many people don't like hearing either word at all and we understand that.

    We even wonder how the Producers of these tv shows get away with the race humor within the show.

    What seems to be the problem? Maybe someone can help. Is it a Smart TV? The control?

    What Ive noticed with the newer Tvs is that no matter what button you press you can't do too much damage like on the old ones...press the wrong button and I could never find my way back to TV.

    My daughter's TV in my room at her house is more complicated than mine but even after not being there awhile...I press a few buttons and eventually it's working. :)

    @Chrissy Cross well most of it ...probably just me. My daugther did hook it up and the firestick. Aggitated because remote is so tiny and just basic . For everthing else you have to and she did download app to get more features ..but have to do from the phone. Cant get app to work but will deal with that another day...everything else works.
    Just seems like everything is piling up at once....lolol it could be worse so I will just have it suck it up:p

    Hey @Gloria Mitchell , get on your computer and pull up YouTube. Type in the new tv's make and model, and when no is watching you, you can watch the related video over and over until you get it. Thank the powers that be, that @Yvonne Smith taught me about YouTube.

    That is considered a tv program, right @Cody Fousnaugh ? :confused: :oops: :p :D

    I like tv but :mad::confused:hate commercials. Loud, too long and too repetitive. 'specially a certain hotel site locator.
    NCIS is going down hill fast with the cast changes.

    Talked to a very nice black lady Friday evening that totally dislikes the tv show, The Carmichaels. Well, like any other comedy show or watching a comedian on stage, a person has to have a "open" sense of humor. An obese comedian can make jokes onstage about dating or weight, just like a black comedian can make jokes about whites and/or blacks.

    I'm sure there were Hispanic's that didn't like the George Lopez Show, due to George making fun of Mexican's/Hispanic's.

    Hell there are some what don't like any ethnic humor,so what to each his own. Now I don't like ethnic stuff that racist, but funny is ok if a little kidding like ..uh/////;)Polish jokes or Louisiana jokes like dees.
    You know you are from Louisiana if...

    * The crawdad mounds in your front yard have overtaken the grass.

    * You greet people with "Howzyamomma'an'dem?" and hear back "Dey fine!"

    * Every so often, you have waterfront property.

    * When giving directions you use words like "uptown", "downtown", "backatown", "riverside", "lakeside", "other side of the bayou" or "other side of the levee.

    * When you refer to a geographical location "way up North", you are referring to places like Shreveport, Little Rock or Memphis, "where it gets real cold"!

    * Your burial plot is six feet over rather than six feet under.

    * You've ever had Community Coffee.

    * You can pronounce Tchoupitoulas but can't spell it. (also, Thibideaux, Opelousas, Ponchartrain, Ouachita, Atchafalaya,)

    * You don't worry when you see ships riding higher in the river than the top of your house.

    * You judge a po-boy by the number of napkins used.

    * The waitress at your local sandwich shop tells you a fried oyster po-boy "dressed" is healthier than a Caesar salad.

    * You know the definition of "dressed".

    * You can eat Popeye's, Haydel's and Zapp's for lunch and wash it down with Barq's and several Abitas, without losing it all on your stoop.

    * The four seasons in your year are: crawfish, shrimp, crab and King Cake.

    * The smell of a crawfish boil turns you on more than HBO.

    * You "wrench" your hands in the sink with an onion bar to get the crawfish smell off.

    * You're not afraid when someone wants to "ax you something".

    * You go by "ya-mom-en-`dems" on Good Friday for family supper.

    * You don't learn until high school that Mardi Gras is not a national holiday.

    * You don't realize until high school what a "county" is.

    * You push little old ladies out of the way to catch Mardi Gras beads.

    * You believe that purple, green and gold look good together (and you will even eat things those colors)

    * You go to buy a new winter coat (what most people refer to as windbreakers) and throw your arms up in the air to make sure it allows enough room to catch Mardi Gras beads.

    * Your last name isn't pronounced the way it's spelled.


    No offense intended...;)
