I love fried chicken, too. All good-hearted people do.

I always imagine a square-jawed 50s guy in a suit delivering his 'white guy' voice.

his act may be a one-trick pony, but shit, he does it so well.
a flaming monkey
I would say that ethnicity is the basis of most recent nonwhite stand-up comedy. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying all of it, and I'm actually not too knowledgeable of the stand-up comedy circuit in America or anywhere else for that matter. But it seems to me, that depending on the comedian's ethnicity they can make fun of certain groups. Blacks can make fun of blacks, whites, chinese; essentially everyone. Whites can make fun of mostly other whites: the irish, polish, italians etc. It's kind of an ethnic funnel system where the more of a minority status you have, the more peoples you are allowed to make fun of in a non-offensive context. Just a personal observation, and I'm not saying it's a good or bad thing, but that's just the impression I get. Oh, and I'm a giant racist too :)
I would like those platitudes with a side order of collard greens, please.
It has less to do with race and more to do with the fact that successful comedians are usually "harmless outsiders." As outsiders, they already have the comedic perspective. The group they are making fun of knows they can't hurt them and therefore can join in on the laugh. This is why a lot of successful comedians are Jewish, Black, or Canadian.
I thought it was colored greens
