One of my favorite comedians... despite the controversies... (I didn't have to agree with everything he had to say). There was much more positive than negative....much more to like than to hate about Bernie Mac. He could always get me to laugh... a very difficult task indeed. Those who know me outside of the internet will tell you that.
I enjoyed his TV Show as well... I could always forget about the world for a moment, smile and enjoy life when I watched his show or his other performances.
His life was an American Dream story...particularly for those of us who came from the ranks of the urban poor...those who didn't have much as children. I loved how he shared some of his life story on his TV show.
