Heating up the ethnic-cultural comedy

Now that we've got a black president, people are feeling more empowered to make comedy not about empowerment, but about mocking stupidity. In this case, it's trans-racial appropriation of a grotesque caricature of that moronic subculture that imitates the music and lifestyle made by black people and predominantly consumed by bored suburban youth: gangsta rap.

Melanin is the body's natural pigment. It's responsible for the color of skin and protects humans from harmful solar radiation.

Reminds me of the time Oliver Wendell Holmes turned Steve Dallas "black" with his melanin ray.
