  • Amos & Andy was OK!

    This TV series was the only show of its time to portray blacks as successful, well dressed everyday folks. The show would have been offensive only to hyper sensitive, dyed in the wool, black deadbeats. The characters were mostly honest working class people with good moral character. George Stevens was a schemer, but seldom succeeded with his schemes! Amos was depicted as the most hard working person in the cast and Sapphire was the conscience for George. The only "stereotype" in the show was the messenger boy, "Lightning"! These shows were straight forward and generally portrayed good values. Today's phony, "politically correct" depictions are mostly a lie to assuage opportunists like Jesse Jackson who makes his living by fomenting racial strife.
