While many of you are sitting around watching SNL, you are missing out on a very valuable experience that is watching "In Living Color." I am pleased to announce that reruns have been airing on FX, and it has made me reminisce on the things that I have learned from watching some of the most iconic characters in television.

1. Benita Butrell - You can say whatever you want as long as you cover your ass by the end of it.

Be the eyes and ears of whatever institution you belong in, but don't let any knowledge be traced back to you 'cause it's none of your business.

2. I learned the type of body a woman can and should achieve thanks to Vera de Milo.

3. Fire Marshall Bill taught us that if a man walks up to you lookin' like this you run the hell out. Licensed professional means nothing when you're reckless with a flame thrower.

4. I learned all the best movies, vacation spots, etc. of the time from Blaine Edwards and Antoine Meriweather in "Men On..."

Also many ways to convey my appreciation through the art of *snaps*

5. Well you can learn just about everything from Wanda, but most importantly I learned to love myself no matter what anyone says and to ensure my potential lovers that I will rock their worlds.

6. Also to find a man that'll suck your mouth so hard your forehead will cave the hell in...
not this kinda bourgeois junk.

(Sorry David Alan Grier)

7. The establishment, the man, and Chez Whitey are the enemies.

And what have we learned about oppressive forces from Homey D. Clown?

8. Tough love is necessary in keeping children aware and your job more entertaining.

9. The Wayans have an eye for talent.

Thank them for Jenny from the Block!

10. Live your life with no inhibitions.

I'd say like no one is watching, but Anton Jackson had a skit dedicated to public indecency when he changed his pants at a mini-market...

11. And lastly, that not enough has changed.

"In Living Color" satirically exposed the ignorance and injustice at wide in the world, and it's amazing how much is still applicable today.

I can't make an article about "In Living Color" without pointing out that most of it's ingenious work was used to expose inequality in the world. Especially since lessons that may have been learned from watching in the 90's have been lost today.

Do yourselves a favor and get familiar with "In Living Color." You won't regret it.
