Over the years, Harvey has expressed numerous sentiments of “cooning” that when separated seemed like a comedy, but when strung together make for a nice plate of bigotry and hearty appetite of racial self-hate. Listed below are a few of Harvey’s comedy sketches that illustrate this point extremely well.
First Example: Steve Harvey Criticizes DreadlocksWhen Harvey gets on the microphone, he starts subliminally criticizing black culture. For example, during one of Harvey’s comedy specials entitled Still Trippin, he takes an opportunity to reveal his disdain for dreadlocks.
Harvey tries to cover up any animosity for people wearing locks by putting the skit in a father-to-son context, which describes “subliminally” as the relationship to master and servant.
Second Example: Steve Harvey Biased Remarks About Africa and Marcus GarveyIn another comedy skit, Steve Harvey’s cooning rises to the front of the stage with a subliminal criticism of black culture via Africa. In the skit that appears below, Harvey starts clowning the Back to Africa Movement, a phrase that is heavily associated with Marcus Garvey. Afterward, he begins talking about Africa’s rural area as if it is all of Africa and states that America is a better country (even though Africa is a continent) because of such. The sad thing about all of this is that Harvey’s sketch is entitled Africa Is Scarier Than The Projects. The next question should be who made Africa and who made the projects?
Third Example: Steve Harvey Says He Would Act Like A Monkey for $4 MillionNext, we find the infamous animal house of negro comedy skits that concerns being a monkey. Ironically, Harvey even admits that although his playing a “good monkey” would get black people upset, who would really care? It’s all about getting the money, right? Then he opens the skit saying that this idea of portraying a “good monkey’ was inspired by a conversation he had with Michael Clarke Duncan (pbuh), whose role in the Green Mile came under heavy criticism by the black community.
Fourth Example: Steve Harvey’s Advice To MoniqueSo eloquently captured in a recent discussion with Monique, Steve Harvey gives the controversial figure advice that was often utilized by drug dealers during the height of the crack game. In the following video, Harvey tells Monique: “This is the money game! This isn’t a black man’s game or the white man’s game!” Then he goes onto say publicly: “The best thing you can do for poor people is not be one of them! You can’t help them!” And Steve said that with the same conviction that Jesus spoke to the Pharisees. This statement comes out the mouth of an African-American whose benefited greatly from the struggle and efforts of men like Marcus Garvey, like Malcolm X, like Martin Luther King. But today you have turned your back on all that they represented since you have been given a piece of the American pie in the literal sense of the term.
There is much more that can be said about the fuckery that Steve Harvey insists on pursuing. Other examples that we didn’t cover in the article include His meetings with both President Obama and President Trump that appear o be subversive tactics to draw attention away from certain news. While Harvey’s exploits may appear too numerous to mention, we do understand that his talent at “cooning” in undeniable.
