----------
In this clip, John Amos speaks about the serious topics that were covered on "Good Times' and there being no Black writers on the show, which caused a lot of friction. John explained that he vocalized how the Black family was being portrayed, which he felt wasn't rooted in reality, which led to him being fired from the show. The show's creator, Norman Lear, called John to explain that he couldn't have him threatening the writers, which you can hear more about above.
