I watched a few of Dean Martin's Celebrity Roasts on YouTube. I am surprised by all the racial jokes on the show. They were all up there jabbing at each other mercilessly and without holding back. It was all taken in fun, Everyone up on the dias had a great time taking verbally abusing and insulting each other. It made me think about how far we've come since those days. I don't mean far for the better. I mean everyone today is so sensitive and too easily offended. Too many people have become emotionally fragile thanks to the intolerance of Political Correctness. PC has pretty much ruined it for comedy. I happen to think there is more healing in laughter between the races.
