Watch: Comedy or Buffoonery? You Tell Us

Actor and impressionist Iman Crosson spoofs President Obama's weighty speech on the capture of Osama bin Laden. Does he take it too far?

Impressionist Iman Crosson

It is difficult to strike a perfect balance between political satire and completely poor taste. With this spoof of President Obama‘s speech about the capture of Osama bin Laden, actor and impressionist Iman Crosson, whose videos featuring his impressions of the president get millions of views on YouTube, makes an attempt. But what do think: Does a video like this–complete with dancing and hip hop references–simply make you laugh, or does it make you concerned about the stereotypes that already exist about America’s first Black president? You tell us: Is this a comedic take on the news, or is it nonsense? Take our poll below.

    usually gives so much attention to the athletes,

    singers and actresses who deserve recognition, but it’

    s nice to see a balance. Thank you
