Oh, no...wait...

Wrong show! That was the late, Redd Foxx, for whom Jaime Foxx took his last name as a homage to Redd.

"Sanford & Son". Loved Aunt Esther!

They were on in the 70's. If you have AntennaTV wherever you are, "All in The Family", and "Sanford & Son", are on, but, Sherman was a pretty big part of, "All in the Family", on some of their shows. "The Jeffersons', was a spinoff of that show.

Sherman is not in, "Sanford & Son". Redd Foxx was their star.

They were racists against each other until a Puerto Rican family moved it, then it was them against the family.

Way, way ahead of their time, as was Eddie Murphy on SNL, when he and Chevy Chase were calling each other racist names in a job interview. It's funny to laugh, but, like I sad, it's sad that people think that way today.

The Jeffersons and Amen are on TVOne, if that is available in your area.
