Gary Owen using his black wife to call Michael Blackson the dreaded n-word is maybe not the best "optics" in the world, but I'm not mad at it.
Blackson and Owen got into it over something Owen said in a recent Breakfast Club video. Namely, that he's funnier than Blackson, who's a one trick pony.
I don't know enough about z-list black and black-adjacent comedians to know if that's true, but I'm thinking Blackson might still have a slight edge, despite being a one trick pony. He looks funnier, and I appreciate the fact that he's keeping '80s-era anti-African humor alive.
But I also appreciate the fact that Gary Owen(s) took one of our women off of our hands, likely sparing her from a lifetime of poverty and desperation. How many black men can claim to have done the same? If you only count brothers who are stable, responsible and gainfully employed, hardly any of us have done anything for black women. I certainly haven't—though I do *have* something for them, heh heh.
Arguably, if you're willing to marry a black woman, you should be allowed to wield her as a sort of hoodrat pokemon, whether that takes the form of using her to call an African guy the dreaded n-word or taking her around to section eight apartment complexes to get into fights with random teenagers for lulz purposes. You're sacrificing quite a bit, and you should derive some sort of benefit other than especially epic backshots.
