The Fresh Prince was a Goofy Nigger….

The Fresh Prince was a Goofy Nigger….

Yes he was.

Re-watching some of the episodes made me notices certain critical aspects of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”

After watching the first episode again it dawned on me that Will’s character, even though watered down, is suppose to be the stereotypical ignorant nigger.

Now because the show is a family show a lot of his antics are “familizied”. Alot of his attitudes suit a PG or G audience, if the show was on HBO you can guarantee he’d be having unprotected sex in his uncle and aunt’s bedroom, while smoking weed.

Now the greatest thing I love about this show is that is displays the progress of one immature, flamboyant individual into a man.  By the end of the series Will is no longer on the “nigger shit”.  With the help of his new surroundings he is able to develop into his own person.  Though his surroundings are a posh Bel-Air environment, it differs from the previous harsh restrictions of his old neighbourhood in Philadelphia.  In definitions of the show Will could not make it out in Philly, hence his shipment to his new home.

This is a quick summary of my ideas.  I probably will end up buying the seasons and making more specific references to my claims.
