Very Effective Demonstration of Bigotry
12 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Seated in a theater-in-the round with his face painted silver, Bill Cosby voices the views of all types of bigots present in The United States of America in 1971. Using derogatory ethnic slurs, Cosby expresses contempt for everyone; Caucasians, African-Americans, Jews, the elderly, and numerous other groups.

I saw this film twice. The first time was at my grade school in 1974, the second, in college a decade later. Each time, it was highly effective at making me understand bigotry and how my own father attempted to hand down similar views to his children. By aiming the hatred at everyone and not just one ethnic group, Cosby demonstrated how it felt to be hated and taught me to unlearn the negativity acquired from my father.
