"Friends" is racist but it's more like "Birth of a Nation." Now minstrelsy is not inherently racist (otherwise I wouldn't be asking this question). Unfortunately because of blackface, it gets that reputation. "Friends" is blackface to me. Anyways, to call "Seinfeld" just comedy is a misomer. "Seinfeld" is not just any comedy. It's pure outright minstrelsy. Why? What is a minstrel. A comedy in which situations so bizarre and unreal happen, that you couldn't honestly believe it would happen in real life. Lol!
