Paul Mooney - Know Your History Jesus Was Black, So Was Cleopatra ...

I first heard of Paul Mooney, like anyone else in my generation, through Chappelle's Show. Over the summer I decided to find out more about him and learned how big he was inside the comedy community. From writing for Richard Pryor to creating Homey the Clown for In Living Color. So I decided to watch a DVD of his stand-up from around 2002 entitled, Paul Mooney: Analyzing White America. It was the hardest I've laughed since I saw Bernie Mac's set on the Original Kings of Comedy for the first time (It's too late for some damn cookies n milk, get your ass back to bed!). He talked about everything from why chubby white woman date skinny niggas to why the media thinks he is an expert on the "N-word".

His latest DVD, Know Your History, picks up where his last DVD left off but gives other entertainers opinions (all positive) on Paul. Paul gives his opinions on the rising Mexican population in America, teacher-student relations, how African's think they are better than black americans, Three 6 Mafia's performance at the Oscar's, nothing is left out! (yes Bush too)
