I feel you but looking back on the character of Ali G... it's just (((Cohen))) mocking working class young British men.

I just rewatched 'this is spinal tap' recently as I always found that movie funny growing up. It still has a lot of funny stuff in it to be sure... but with my new eyes I saw something different... The whole movie is (((Rob Reiner))) mocking bands and culture that ostensibly represented white youth in Britain at the time... much the same as Cohen. Its important that we understand how these things are subversive.

I don't mind a good mocking if it's funny, which I believe Spinal Tap was. You should be able to laugh at yourself and the world around you. But so much of the humor today isn't mocking, it's just negative and hateful...and not even funny.
