“My Black Friend” As Seen On Acceptable.TV

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Bitterly satirical send up of “reality” television shows. Some may find it pretty close to the line between funny and offensive. It may cross far over into “deeply offensive” territory for others. It’s the kind of satire that can go either way, depending on the viewer. If you don’t like the not particularly subtle humor of VH1’s http://acceptable.tv/ you probably will not care for this video. With those caveats, if you want to, you can view it here. I thought it mocked a certain kind of white person pretty convincingly, but again, your reactions may be different.

    Along the same lines (and, therefore, equally funny or offensive, depending on the individual), see
