Buckwheat and Kingfish Demand Reparations
Inspired by Henry Louis Gates Jr.'s essay, the Retired Racial Stereotypes take their case to the Africans.
When I arrived at the African embassy, Buckwheat and the Kingfish were walking a picket line, carrying signs that read, "TIME FOR AFRI-KKK-A TO PAY UP!" and loudly chanting, "REPARATIONS NOW!"
Clearly, they had escaped again from the Home for Retired Racial Stereotypes, where Charlie Chan, Tonto and the Frito Bandito also live.
"What do you Negro stereotypes think you're doing?" I inquired.
"What do it look like we doing! Demanding reparations for slavery," squeaked Buckwheat in between chants. "It's all part of Skip Gates' plan."
"Then shouldn't you be picketing a U.S. government office or a corporate headquarters?" I replied impatiently. "This is an African embassy!"
"That's the genius of it, Brother White," declared the Kingfish. "Skip Gates done figgered out that if we really want to shake loose reparations from the U.S. government, we got to get the Africans to pay up first!"
