"I KNOW I'VE BEEN CHANGED was a poignant story of failure and redemption, and it resounded with urban audiences who identified with its themes and exalted in its spirit."
Sight the euphemism 'urban?' Its the modern politically correct, media term for African-American; and yes his crowd is still predominantly African-American because he caters to them in appreciation for their support, and many of the Black bourgeois class are now eating crow for their past criticisms. I'm not a fan of his comedy, but then I also don't find Benny Hill, The three Stooges, Harold Lloyd, Charlie Chaplin, nor Abbot & Costello funny.
