Before it's time.

Calling this racist is ridiculous. Its racial but not racist. It shows the difference in attitudes at a time when you could actually say what you meant Everybody is as bad as each other. Strange how things like this annoy lefties 50 years later. In my opinion comedy like this brought races together. If you dont like it then dont watch it. Simples!!
