I know a little more now but it is proving not to be enough!
My brother recently gave me a t-shirt with Redd Foxx's face on it, and below that, his famous saying from the show that he would always say to Lamont "You big dummy!"At first I was like, um, thanks Tim. But then I got to thinking about the show, and the many meanings that could apply to that simple expression. The shirt has grown on me, and I am wearing today actually!
Fred Sanford: Now more than ever.Sad that's racism has actually gotten worse(IMO)than when this pointed comedy aired.I love you, F/Red. *sigh*
Hey there Dave. Good to hear from you and I hope you enjoy that t-shirt. It is classic!And yes the comment was a loving one for sure.I like Fred (the character) on race ... playful but there is food for thought beneath some of the comments.Speaking of which, take a look at the gem of a comment that was left under my "The Gods are Still Crazy" post!Be well.Peace,Ridwan
Hey Shusli ... oh yes "now more than ever" ...I remember saying that after the fall of the USSR things may get better in the world.Geez, here we are facing almost 2 decades and what have we?A fascist president and a racist global system that is predatory.And some mornings are nice until one realizes that nice is a struggle front against what is all around.I read your comments about not knowing anymore and I was literally frozen.I did not know what to say ... to think.All of a sudden, again, it dawned on me that what we are up against is bigger than big."And still we rise."Peace sista,Ridwan
I loved that show.
