Family Guy Spins Off Cleveland

A new spin-off of family guy is coming on starring Cleveland, Peter’s black neighbor and I am a little weary. I know the kind of humor MacFarlane employs and I can take a few black stereotype jokes but a whole show dedicated to them every week I could not stand. And is it me or are black jokes all the rage now, in several of my favorite shows black jokes are deployed frequently and I can laugh at myself but it is starting to feel like my childhood when I was subjected to those awful Tex Avery Tom and Jerry cartoons in which after every explosion you would cringe because there would be a person left standing in black face making a offensive joke, lets just hope those days are gone now.
