    I like most of his shows, and he has not surprisingly taken some flak in the past for his "racist humor". A quick search in Google reveals that a lot of people think that his jokes are "racist and not funny".

    I have watched his show many times because my roommate's enjoy it and will put it on. At first I thought it was merely an "America's Funniest Home Videos" ripoff with more graphic "webjunk". While that might be mostly true, he does honestly call out different races for the idiotic things they do. He is extremely politically incorrect which I enjoy. However, he does alot of jokes and sketches that make himself appear homosexual leading many to question his orientation.

    I wasn't really all that familiar with him. I just came across his video on the net and thought that he was getting at the truth in a somewhat humorous way.

    I do appreciate any one who's non-PC for sure. I guess you can get away with a lot of stuff when you couch it in a comedic way.

    He's found a niche for himself but I don't expect him to be any genuine trailblazer for "political incorrectness." I watched his one hour standup show on Comedy Central and it was funny, but again not in a way that will get him in genuine trouble. It was filmed in San Francisco and the audience loved it; enough said, along with howhe likes to play the role of a poofter on his 2.0 show.

    As somebody who does watch his show every now and then, he's funny but makes the obligatory "whites aren't athelets" comment whenever the chance arises.

    I think every one of the half dozen shows I've watched has included "Whites suck at sports" jokes.

    He seems to be an equal opportunity basher, which may explain why he can get away with it. If he made of fun everyone except whites, he could get in trouble. In any event, I agree that he's pretty politically incorrect and does go after a lot of protected groups, so that's a good thing in our "diverse" and "tolerant" nation.

    Here's another funny video, not sure if he heard from feminist establishment on this one:

    On a recent episode of Tosh.0, a video played of two guys holding large carrots at their crotches"¦Tosh remarked "Since those are white guys, shouldn't they be holding baby carrots?"Â￾

    No amount of "politically incorrect joking"Â￾ could be more offensive or damaging to blacks, hispanics, asians, Muslims, gays, or feminists than his "unathletic"Â￾ and "small penis"Â￾ white jokes.

    Naturally, I'll never watch another moment.

    That is hilarious, Dixie!I can't believe that was actually allowed to air, even on Comedy Central.
