    • Bernie Mac: (talking to the camera) America, I want to make this perfectly clear -- not all black people are alike. Take me and my wife for example. Yeah, we both like fried chicken and the Commodores. We need lotion, stuff like that, but we came up different. When I was a boy, Big Mama used to hit me so hard, made my teeth click. I mean, I got my ass whupped -- beatings. Now, at Wanda's house? Huh, family meetings -- "Sweetheart, I'm very disappointed in you." See, I didn't get all that talking to, and I'm not complaining, but it made me a better man. I mean, I don't tolerate nonsense, just like none was tolerated from me. Now, Wanda, on the other hand, she's soft, lenient -- she goes too easy on the kids. Now, I'm not saying we should beat them, although, you know. I'm just saying we're different.
