Maude Gets A New Maid: Carol Burnett Parody

The issue of race was a part of America’s past and sure to be a part of it’s future, at least for the foreseeable future. The 1970’s were a strange time when it came to racial relations. At least on paper racial discrimination was no longer supported and the inner city riots of the sixties were in the past. However there was this kind of uneasy truce where both whites and blacks approached each other with sort of awkward smiles and not relaxed interaction. Some might say that it constantly pervades the public discourse today, but for myself I prefer it to that strange kind of dynamic that persisted in the seventies when I was a kid.
