Bill Cosby on Prejudice, 1971 - ★★★½

Bill Cosby on Prejudice, 1971 - ★★★½

Wacky, deliberately offensive 25 minute routine with Cosby in clownish blackface spouting senseless stereotype hatred. Undeniably must have been so incendiary back in the early 70's, gets freakishly prophetic towards the end when he aims the rant at women just being needed for sex and to produce babies. Regardless of his aledgedly chequered past 'with tha women and tha roofies' you can't take away from him how provocative and important his comedy was back then.
