There is nothing genius about the upbringing of a black man in the ghetto where all survive the next. Besides this man wasn't even funny. I don't know what y'all thinking.

"Simon Randall" I also don't have the tastes for most of his jokes. Jimmie Walker and Freddie Prinze tried to copy cat Richard Pryor at least in certain ways. It is a style of comedy that took off but had no real substance. Only shock value

I’m not against interracial marriages but I’m surprised he was married to a white woman as much as he talked about black/white people

For all the stick he gave white people he goes and marrys one:) see there was always love there from him, i think he just said what the black community wanted to hear..but underneath he had love for the white person the same way the white person had tons of love for him. He was one of the top 3 comics ever i rekon..R.I.P you crazy guy...

Before I was born again, I loved Pryor, however after I got to know God, I realized that Pryor was a wicked filthy foul mouth sinner. He is no hero to me. He is many comedian's hero,because the world loves it's own.

If you could sit down and watch a man the son of a pimp and prostitute, and your thought is simple condemnation not even a thought for understanding, what kind of Christian are you?

Richard was a troubled,burden and traumatized man! It was a miracle he survived that long. No child or human being should ever have to go through what he had been through. May God continue to bless and rest his soul. Your childhood upbringing oftentimes determines your future. Peace,love and prosperity to all..
Napunzel Hace 10 días
He was a good person. He could have become a pimp like his Dad but turned those horrible traumatizing experiences into comedy.

RICHARD AND JAMES BROWN LIVED THE SAME CHILDHOOD. My dad's Childhood mirrored that of the kid in Harlem nights. They used him to sneak the drugs in the speak easy's.

Linda HinesThey said Pryor made that story up in the beginning. They followed with he was a full blooded African decent from Illinois.
Joseph Hace 15 días
You can tell behind those jokes there are pains of his childhood. You can see he is struggling about his past whenever he speaks. Sad. No child should be raised this way. Luckily he used comedy for his way out of the hood.

Raised by messed up people ???? Raised in the system of white supremacy/ racism. That’s would be a more accurate statement. Those harsh environment were intentional for black peoples by white Supremacists and the government played a huge role. Never blame the victims of racism. Typical for a white man to point the system at black folks.
Shandra9000mail Hace 10 días
WTF are you talking about? 🙄 This has nothing to do with White Supremacy....Stop using that excuse all of your life. His Parents and his grandmother screwed him up. The race card won't work here.

Jack D Hace 11 días
Yeah. But its bullshit. The mob was stringing out white folks since the 20s on skag. It was an epidemic when national media started reporting it. It used to be that nobody talked about it. And you went and lived in an infirmary, asylum or you got ssi disability for a 'mental illness'.
