I'd never seen this before..It's Richard Pryor. as The First Black President. It's from 1977...that's 37 years ago. It's very funny, and also, uncannily prophetic..
If anyone can do a screen grab of Pryor, and then a side by side with Obama....
A classic clip, but I see Eric Holder when I watch it.
It’s the ‘stach, right?
1977? So this was before Bill Clinton.

"Chocolate City" Uh, what's happening CC? They still call it the White House But that's a temporary condition, too. Can you dig it, CC?

Yeah, get deep Real deep Heh Be mo' funk Mmmph, heh Get deep Bad Unh, heh Just got New York, I'm told
The problem is, the media are asking real questions.
That doesn’t happen with Obama.
There’s enough truth in it to encapsulate a good part of why many whites dislike Obama. Skin color, character—those are abstractions. It’s because of how he acts—smarmy, disingenuous, entitled, race-focused.
