"All in the Family," which pre-
miered in January, centers on
Archie Bunker, (played by Car-
roll O'Connor), a blue-collar work-
er who spews racial and religious
prejudices, complete with ethnic
epithets, and gets his comeuppance
at the end of each episode.
In one episode, Archie excori-
ated a Jewish woman for alleg-
edly ramming his car ("They're
all the same, them people!"),
then sought a Jewish lawyer to
represent him because "they're
smarter and shrewder."
