Oh man, this one's definitely going to piss some people with no sense of humor off! Subtitled "A Black Sex Comedy," this unique video is often very funny, while retaining its sexuality.
Opening with old black and white cartoons full of racial caricatures along with old stereotypical film clips, they soon are zinging the jokes in a Laugh In-gone-naked style. A typical one is, "What do a sperm and a negro have in common? Only one in 150,000 work!" Offensive – maybe. Funny – yes.
The sex then kicks into gear with Dominique playing with her pussy. Pretty soon it's "Hi, ho silver dildo time." After a couple more jokes, she's joined by a good-looking black stud. Later there's lots more jokes, fake commercials, some girl/girl action, an interracial boy/girl encounter, some more boy/girl and threesome black action, and a couple amusing country music tunes. Most of the sex works just fine.
Black Mariah is not mean spirited, but does at times come close to crossing the line of acceptability. The sets and technical aspects are all top-notch. Highly recommended for the adventurous and open minded who can still enjoy a politically incorrect joke.
