    For the time period this was hugely controversial, and incredibly funny

    Always loved this one!...but it may be even more controversial today than it was then.

    Maybe so, but I don't think it would have the shock value it had then.

    Can someone smarter than me find the one where Buckwheat (Eddie Murphy) gets shot? That was one of my favorites, but I can't find it on youtube, and other sites that have it are getting blocked by my firewall

    Possibly, but I think there'd be a more vocal outrage now.

    I guess I have a different thought. I understand what you are thinking given that this is the age of political correctness and advocacy groups and everyone feeling discriminated against (not to say that there aren't some that are discriminated against), but with two well regarded comedians being involved, and one being black and one being white, I think it would largely be taken as social satire rather than an affront to a particular race.

    The interesting twist might be that if there were outrage at a skit like this today, it might be more from white Americans who would argue that Chevy Chase's character is representative of a past time, and not of the majority of employers today.
