How's Jordan Peele been doing so far? Don't him and Keegan have semi-similar comedy/improv backrounds? I don't really remember seeing Jordan much at all yet besides the time he played Lenny Kravitz.

LOL... You're not an avid follower of MADtv are you? It took Debra, who is the queen of MADtv, a few YEARS to get the recognition she deserved. Sure, you think its improved since then... I mean it only took Alex and Mo less than a season to get promoted and on track, but theres one problem... they're white The more I think about it the more I can sympathize with Jill... MADtv is slightly racist IMO

MADtv is not rascist. The only reason they make all the "black jokes" or "latin jokes" or even "gay jokes" for that matter is because of ratings. They started doing them in season 4 and 5 and fans paid attention. So obviously it's getting a positive reaction more than a negative one. As for getting recognition because they're white? Sorry can you add some substance to that empty statement? Cast member's get recognition based on audience feedback. As far as I know the black cast on MAD has always done considerably well. Debra just took a few seasons to shine through and do her thing, that's all.

All right I realise that I didn't watch the early season of MAD, but just from reruns on CH... IT seems really odd to me that it took Debra lets say a season and a half??? Aries... well there was already a black guy there so it took him a season or so, etc. The point is, and I think I mentioned this in another thread, anyone whos on the show should be given a chance.... Debra and others weren't given that chance because of type casting... Let them do their thing... let them be their own comedic self, with their own style... you know? And I never really noticed this until Jordan came along... I just think that MADtv is slightly racist for giving them ONLY stereotype roles at the beginning... I don't find anything wrong with them giving them some stereotype roles, as long as they also give them a chance to show off the rest of their talent. I dunno... And I never will until I am a different race, on MADtv... So its just My Opinion. I don't have inside sources like alot of you guys. I try emailing castmembers but they don't keep in touch with me like they do with you... I must be doing something wrong. So my only way of knowing whats going on in MADtv is by guessing
