    This episode is kind of over the top, but funny in its own right. Marlon quits his job at Pop's diner and decides to start a business called "Afro-Pick-You-Up," a taxi-service designed "for the brotha man, not the otha man." At first, Shawn thinks Marlon is being a loser, but when Marlon lies about how much money he's making doing the taxi service, Shawn quits his job and joins Marlon. The business is so unsuccessful that they end up picking up mostly non-black people. There is a scene in this episode involving an Arab guy with a bomb that was pulled post-911 (this episode aired in early 1995). It would definitely offend some, but it is admittedly kind of funny. Overall the episode is pretty good, but there are definitely much better out there from the Wayans.
