Carlos Mencia: Grand Pupa of the Elks Lodge

A few years ago, I saw the stand up of Carlos Mencia and thought it was pretty humorous.
I've seen a few episodes of The Mind of Mencia. His humor doesn't translate to a show on Comedy Central.

The jokes are essentially all racist. I think I've been around the most racist old white people who say "wetback" and "beaner" less than this guy and he's Hispanic! I know he thinks that he is taking the stigma away when he says that shit, but he's not. Basically, his entire show is based on jokes from the Elk's Lodge in 1963. Every ridiculous stereotype, he plays up. He sat there and said that the only reason that Mexicans were in the country illegally was because the blacks no longer are willing to do those jobs. He told a black man that blacks are lazy to the man's face and the man fucking laughed! He fucking laughed! How is that funny?

I miss Dave Chappelle. He was a true comic genious with purpose. They decide to replace their comedy token with a lighter token. Comedy Central keeps touting Mencia as "edgy", when he does little more than take stereotypes and pass it as "shocking" because it comes out of the mouth of a token. How fucking insulting to all of us.

    agreed. Mencia was funny back in the day of stand up. Today, it's just ugly and old.
