Finally, People Besides Me Dislike Tracy Morgan

I know I’m in the minority on this one, but I’ve never for a second found Tracy Morgan funny. His act is pure minstrelsy out of the 1920s- an over-the-top caricature of a super-oversexed, super-dumb black man. I have a really hard time laughing at his mugging, his “jokes,” and his generally annoying presence, whether he’s doing standup, movies or TV. He’s my #1 reason (out of about 20) for not liking “30 Rock.”
So that he’s a generally hateful and vile individual isn’t especially surprising. It’s one thing to be edgy or controversial or even to use slurs- but to threaten to beat up your own son, were he gay? In the guise of a comedy routine?
