    Jeffersons' star Sherman Hemsley dies at 74

    http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/07/24...omment-page-1/

    Sherman Hemsley, who played the brash George Jefferson on "All in the Family" and "The Jeffersons," died Tuesday at age 74, his booking agent said.

    Hemsley played Jefferson, a wisecracking owner of a dry cleaner on "All In the Family" from 1973 until 1975, when the spinoff "The Jeffersons" began an 11-season run.

    Hemsley also played Deacon Ernest Frye in the sitcom "Amen."

    Damn, RIP Sherman. George Jefferson is one of my favorite fictional racists.

    Are you saying black man couldn't own a chain of dry cleaners?

    Yup. Sadly, Roxie Roker died in 1995.

    His guest appearance on Fresh Prince is one of their best episodes.

    If based on his role in the Jeffersons, I'd assume that must have been a good show.
