Is Family Guy A Racist Show?

I love Family Guy, but sometimes I wonder why they do this.

mostly parodying paranoia of political incorrectness. Not sure about the context of the last one though.

The song is actually from The Wiz, pretty much the Wizard of Oz.

The last scene was cut off early. If it had shown the full scene it would have shown Brian getting embarrassed and saying how he wasn't really racist but that 'it wasn't him, it's his father'. The joke was people who make excuses for their racist comments and behaviour while posing as more liberal and enlightened people.

In this case it's a running joke from an earlier episode. Although I don't really see the funny side, I do see and understand the relevance of the comment they're making.

I find very few of these jokes 'racist' so much as they are using examples of very unfortunate truths. Take for example the one where Cleveland is beaten up by a machine. The joke is that the police are so racist that they programmed a machine to be as well.

Because people who are, in family guy at least, portrayed as minorities are generally the ‘wise man’ in most situations then they are not the one being made a food of, but rather it is the ignorant racist who is being portrayed for their ignorance.

The only sketch I didn’t understand was the one where Brian and some black guy was watching the O.J Simpson trial, but I can’t help but feel that this may be another one where we’re not getting the full story, just as the last scene in the trailer. (I didn’t see that episode, so I don’t know).

Come on, if you were to edit through all the family guy episodes you could make at least two minutes insulting every ethnic group, minority group, religious/ belief system, etc. that there is on planet Earth.

Family guy is not racist, but instead uses comedy to draw attention to unpleasant social truths. i.e. Peter Griffin is a fat moron, like all Americans.

(Kidding! Oh, don't be so sensitive, yankee boy.) :D :D :D

I think you have to applaud these types of shows, that is family guy, south park etc, where they try to show us that its ok to make fun of everything and everyone or nothing, I mean they make fun of themselves, their own religion, race, stupid habits, etc why shouldn’t they be able to point out humorous observations of others too, and I mean if they are doing it to everyone including themselves, how can it be racist?, I think its just comedy, even if some don’t find it funny.

Its not racist if you make fun of everyone, just distasteful to some. i personally find it funny and take it as it should be, humor. For those that watch the show you know that anyone and anything are fair game. Just because some asshole cuts out all the insults to a particular ethnic group and labels the show racist doesnt mean its true. Other stereotypes that are made fun of alot are against cripples, catholics, the irish, james woods, and a yelloe chicken. Do i think Seth Macfarland has a grunge against these groups? No not at all. Well maybe yellow chickens. I do however appreciate the humor.

if Family Guy is a racist show, we still have to explain how come one of the main character's black.
Can't wait for The Cleveland Show!...

why is it when a basicly white prog makes aremark about black
the 'whites' have to be careful not to offend anyone BUT when predomnately black programs make a remark or statemant about whites , the whites have to ACCEPT it as a JOKE or as a
non-racial remark

7; I am aware of the circumstances of OJs trail and his acquittal as I have lived on planet earth for some time now. I just thought there might have been more to that sketch than was shown.

This would be a valid question if Family Guy was a serious show.
But it is indeed not a good or serious show.

Definitely not. Family guy takes the piss out of racism. I fail to understand how people can misinterpret the show this way. Anyone who is offended by it should rethink their attitudes to life and being in a minority. You can't find much more support than a show like this. Get a life ..

Dating in real life, for the most part, is made by guys, but girls consider it unacceptable to take the initiative. On the Internet you can do anything you want. Including writing a letter to a man you are interested in. That's why I recommend you the site to search for <a href="">russian mail order brides</a>. My acquaintances have got acquainted with this site and they have been together for 7 months and they are very happy. So I recommend this site to all those who, like me, can not find their soul mate.
