Archie Bunker: Understood that the world was changing faster than he was. He spoke from his (bigoted) truth but with a good heart. George Jefferson: Is similar to Archie in his dealings with the subject of race. He was ambitious and successful enough to be arrogant about it. If Spike lee is Kanye's father, George is his grandpa.

"All in the family" - Jean Stapleton..... super great comedian and actress who greatly influenced American television weekly comedy shows. American bias was met head on in a humorous, life changing way. No wonder most of the set has been preserved and is found today at the Smithsonian Institute. She will forever be a part of American consciousness..
