Vancouver-based comedian Peter Chao has amassed a significant following on youtube with his fobby rants. They're funny enough if you're into Chinese accents and humour based almost entirely on ethnic stereotypes.
He was recently suspended temporarily due to one of his posts in which he dons blackface and pretends to be his black friend "Jamal Jenkins". I guess someone thought it was too racist to be on youtube; interesting considering youtube is perhaps the most racist environment you can ever experience.
Below is the offending video, now back online. It's an endless parade of stereotypes - but is he mocking black people, or mocking the stereotypes? I'm inclined to think the latter. Judge for yourself.
After being suspended, Chao posted this:
