Mainstream Racism

When Charlamagne states "I can't believe I'm getting away with this", he's not exaggerating. This show is pure racist propaganda. It's a vile stream of hatred that would be blasted as Nazi/KKK propaganda if this wasn't somehow the zeitgeist of the current moment. I wouldn't recommend anyone watch this unless they sadistically enjoy hating people based on the color of their skin.

racist as shit!!!

this show is racist as shit!! but no one seems to care as long as it’s directed toward white people. this guy is a stupid asswipe capitalizing on the current wave sad ass loser. and, he’not funny at all. even when he’s not talking shit about white people. which is rare. and……… seems to be accepted without any recourse. wake up people!!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (16 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The late-night variety talk show offers some straightforward commentary about issues and topics as they relate to race and racial awareness. Charlemagne McKelvey is unapologetically blunt as he shares his thoughts about relevant issues, while simultaneously using some irreverent humor to do it. But it's the comedy sketches, and the scenes of him going undercover to reveal some of the truths behind what he's saying, that are the most fun. Not everyone will be drawn to McKelvy's delivery style, and some may be uncomfortable with he points he is making. Nonetheless, Tha God's Honest Truth With Charlamagne Tha God presents arguments that are worth paying attention to.
