why aren’t Eddie’s racist jokes making it on the air?
Some suggest that CBS’ portrayal of Eddie as a “lovable cancer victim with wacky Fonzie characteristics” is keeping them from revealing his nastier, sometimes racist side. Also, the Big Brother house seems to be more racist, with some of the houseguests talking of ousting congenial Cassandra or bland Curtis “because they don’t relate to” them.
