Black People Love Us

I love great satire, especially about really important issues. This website is awesome.



I understand that not everyone sees the value of satire, but it has a great tradition of using humor to make insightful and contemporary social commentary. For example, Swift's great essay, "A Modest Proposal" written in 1729. I use this example because sometimes it is easier to understand satire out of context.

I enjoy satire, but I know many people don't. I wish we had a little more in more main stream culture.
I have to say I was a little taken off guard at first, but I think they did a great job at getting the message across.
