Is it just us or is Tracy Morgan a modern day Sambo, shuckin’ and jivin’ to get a nice laugh from white folks?

If you don’t know already, just watch this sickening acceptance speech last night at the Golden Globes. Not funny, go pick up a book and get some dignity. SMH.

    Sad to say but coonish is what that speech was. I have heard him interviewed before and he sounds modestly intelligent. Something about a camera makes him Kunta Kinte.



  • Kigali (Channeling her inner Dr. Laura and Judge Judy for Bossip retards)

    Tracy has a drinking problem. THat dude was drunk.

  • Check out my website!

    ummm that was so pathetic all I could do was laugh. It’s like he was just waiting to use that Barack/racial material and he couldn’t wait for a more appropriate time (but considering it was weak and coonish as hell I don’t think there would have been a more appropriate time). @ WOW…what Hilarious is that you’re made at Bossip when TRACY MORGAN himself is the one who brought up in his random spazz attack to prove his comedic abilities…so I’m confused were you trying to criticize Bossip for asking a racial based question or Tracy Morgan for bringing the topic up? I will stop there because a further analyze of your obviously unfounded statement especially the 3rd part would be over your head.

    ooo Tracy..

    I still chuckled a bit

  • eeeeeeeeee

    nigga please. this acceptance speech was hilarious. there’s no race factor here. dont make it one. he’s a drinker anyways.

  • dkan71

    I thought it was freakin’ hilarious and 30 Rock is one of the funniest shows on TV.

  • BlahBlah

    Correction: 30 Rock WAS a funny show. It sucks now with its non-PC, PC humor. Tina Fey is an undercover racist and I don’t laugh even once because I can see the jokes coming from a mile away.


    Awkward.Not for reasons of “coonery”…so much as you know he’s “not right”.Between the booze & the between the ears issues-he’s tough to watch in unscripted moments.He’s in the same place as Sean Penn.Penn allegedly struggles with bi-polarity.If you “fix” him…does he lose his ability to perform?
    Same with Morgan.Meshugas.

  • Mz Teal

    Y’all are to damn quick to call someone a coon.

  • Re is excited to see GAMBIT in May. FINALLY!


    I think Tracy makes white AND black people uncomfortable. I think his acceptance award was FAR from “shucking and jiving.”

    This man seriously needs someone to pry the bottle from his hands…

  • MS. P.R.O

    i have to agree with bossip…i was embarrassed for him and barack…and please dont associate barack with that mess tracy…….he just needed to sit down and shut the hell up…we dont need to be acting like that in this day and age….dammit tracy..sit down and shut up!!

  • cali in va

    Not conning, not exactly ROFL, but okay. Other stuff has been far worse, like his appearances on late-night TV.

  • cali in va

    I think it’s that voice-that already annoying as hell NY accent that he exaggerates, that leads people in that sambo direction.

  • Coop


    A lot of black’s hate black people. What he said is in no way coonish. What is coonish is the desire scrutinize every action by other black’s

  • Lisa

    Usually I get my panties up in a bunch, but Tracey was FUNNY. Yes his voice is a little too much, but that ceremony needed some funk. He wasn’t offensive, just his butler tux.

  • Honey B.

    Lets give Tracy Morgan a break. Rather than saying he was acting like a coon, I think he was drunk as hell. He does have a drinking problem.

  • Infinite45

    It was pure comedy. It’s only “coonery” because you think it is. I didn’t see him shuckin and jivin. That always been his style of comedy.

  • Honey B.

    I thought he was funny too. Us black folk need to get that broom out of our ass, why are we so uptight. Tracy Morgan represents Tracy Morgan. He doesn’t represent the entire African American race. Dang!

  • uptowngirl

    Well said Honey B. Damn. The brother just trying to do him. And I thought the shit was funny.

  • Just Sit and Be Pretty

    I laughed…

  • Creole Baby isa Cash Money Stunna on his 14th Summa

    i cried…

  • Dizzy McElroy

    I can’t believe they pay him money…

  • Encyclopedia Brown

    This entire website sickens me…

  • Bestlife

    That speech was very “coonish”. Everybody knows Tracy has a drinking problem so why would the 30 Rock producers let him get up there and make a fool of himself other than to laugh AT him not with him (the very reason why Chappelle decided against moving ahead with his tv show deal despite the $50M paycheck)
