Willie G. Davidson,
Paul Mooney's comedy is not for everyone, it is divisive and very blunt. That being said, I loved his "Analyzing White America", not just because I am African-American and happen to agree with many of Mr. Mooney's perspectives, but that the subject matter of 9/11 took particular courage if anyone can remember the political and social climate in America in 2002. I understand that there are many people who just "don't get" Mr. Mooney's particular brand of humor, he was a writer for the brilliant Richard Pryor and he is from a particular period in American life where his viewpoint on Race was more prevalent within the African-American community. I thought this stand up was funny, factual, and insightful, others will disagree, indeed, some will find it downright offensive along racial lines. But no more offensive than Bill Maher's take on religion if you are religious, but regardless of your viewpoint, Mooney is unabashedly blunt and unapologetic, you have to appreciate that in this time of water downed comedy.
