I can't imagine what goes through people's heads when they do things like this. It wasn't okay back in the 80s when that governor did it, and it isn't now. It doesn't matter if it's "edgy" and you consider yourself an ally -- it is disgusting, no matter who you are.

I tried to watch her television show when I heard one of my old high school friends was a major producer for her show and live videos..... It was probably the worst comedy show I have ever seen..... She is terrible 

Totally agree. I am 100% for female comedians trying to push the boundaries of what is "acceptable" for topics they cover, or being "blue" but Sarah Silverman just isn't funny. This photo is just more proof of that.

It seems as if it was ok back in the 80's and in the 90's even.  I remember when Ted Danson was dating Whoopi Goldberg and Danson was a top actor back then,  He dressed up in black face for a roast of his then gf Whoopi  and used the N work numerous times.  Turns out Whoopi even wrote many of his joke.  Seems that Montel WIlliams, Sheri Belfantoe and  Mayor David Dinkins was in the audience.  Not a word of outrage was spoken back then and still till today it seems as if it was fine and dandy.
