    One of my favorite shows as a kid in the 70s. I was a little fascinated by California and the area they lived in called Watts. Anyone familiar with the Watts area today, what is it like. Obviously the TV show did not portray it as a very nice area. Some of the riots were in Watts correct???

    I watched a lot of it when it was on late night in college (this would’ve been early 2000s). Always loved Redd Foxx...he was essentially the black version of my grandfather.

    On one of these where are they now shows, LaWanda was the undocumented pharmisist that kept them on a higher plane of thought.

    Her stand up routine was very blue. I think a lot of people would be surprised. Sanford and Son was one of the greats. I hope it’s not relegated to trash heap of political correctness like Amos and Andy.

    But no, there is no racism in that community.

    I watched a show where Fred was fighting a traffic ticket and he dropped the big N word multiple times in the show. Wouldn't fly today

    Red and LaWanda knew each other from way back vaudville and chitlin' circuit. She replicated her fire eating act on the Mike Douglas show.

    Redd Foxx played one of my all time favorite characters. He was a master and ad-libbed a lot of lines.. It's still a great laugh to watch...

    I recently watched an episode where Fred was worried about the latins moving into the neighborhood. He went on about them and their "puerto rican poodles" (goats) and "latin lettuce" in the garden. :hippie:
