Emmanuel Lewis

Wow, this enttry on Emmanuel Lewis doesn't really do him any favours.

OK, so they get all of the details right. Emmanuel Lewis is indeed African American, he is indeed short and he is indeed an actor who has been in a number of TV shows and has had the honour of appearing in an episode of South Park (well, a cartoon of Emmanuel Lewis appeared in South Park with his voice).

But the slightly unfair part is that they imply that Emmanuel Lewis' career was rather manufactured. In essence, that Gary Coleman was a star as a short African American actor on TV so they looked around for another short African American actor to turn into a TV star and alighted upon Emmanuel Lewis.

Hey, it might even be true, but it's not very kind to actually go around saying so, is it?
