I don't consider him very funny at all. I am very sorry to hear another young person gone because he really take very good care of himself and allowed himself to get so large that is what he should concerned himself about and not what he considers a joke about white women isn't funny at all. Let a white comic dare say something simular about black women and there would be such an outcry calling him or her a racist. But as usuall nothing is said about a black man saying something about white women that is considered to be OK.
