Homage to Eddie Murphy, a Great American
It may be my sick sense of humor, but I believe that Eddie Murphy is one of the funniest people who's ever lived, and that his twisted sense of humor has always been incredibly unique, incredibly insightful, barbarically hilarious...and utterly fearless. He is truly One Of A Kind.
Murphy has always had the Balls of a Lion, and never hesitated to call out White Racism, Black Racism, or anything that he regarded as Bull Shit. Back in his Saturday Night Live days, he spoofed reggae bands, and spoofed the gratuitous license that Black Americans are often afforded by White Americans, out'f fear, on the latter's part, of being themselves branded racists.
It seems to me to be apropos to this moment in history, when many men and women of good will, White Americans and Black Americans, all agree that more work needs to be done, to exterminate the last vestiges of Racism from out institutions, but when a few of us are going, perhaps, a wee bit overboard with our rhetoric, to hear a few words...from Brother Tyrone Green:
Eddie Murphy...a great American.
