Thread Name: Andy Griffith Show & Dillards
Subject: RE: Andy Griffith Show
Of course, Amos and Andy featured an all-black cast years before the Griffith Show, although few would call it ground-breaking. Stereotypical as it was, it may have been less insulting to African Americans than the standard fare on Def Comedy Jam. Was the principle objection because it was the work of white writers perpetuating stereotypes, rather than black ones?
