Wow
8 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I heard of this show from my cousin who insists on repeating the line "tell santa he gone pay what he owe" which is by the very funny. I like what I see and examination of urban culture and some of the ignorance that is proliferated and passed off as "black". It is highly unfortunate that most people upon watching will simply hear the N-word and a lot of cussing and be either highly offended or extremely amused with out seeing the value of this satire. I think this is a learning period, where culture is examined blown up and fit back together and people are left asking the question who am I really. My hope and I believe that shows aim is to show people that they are not required to continue a lifestyle that is immature and counter productive or as the show might put it they don't have to act like Ni**as
