Jack, a black assistant appliance repairman appears on All In The Family in different accounts in the Season 4 episode "Everybody Tells the Truth".

Archie, Edith, Mike all had different accounts of what transpired when Archie called in a couple of repairmen to fix the Bunkers' refrigerator. According to Archie, Jack, who was assistant to Bob, the repairman, appeared as a militant, knife-wielding black gang-banger and his boss Bob the Repairman (Ken Lynch) as a Mafioso type, while Mike insists that the two workers were a stereotypical musical-comedy and an Amos 'N' Andy-style shuffler, with Jack now appearing as the Stepin' Fetchit/Rochester type to Bob's version of Jack Benny, Edith winds up telling the real story, which presents Jack and boss Bob as they actually appeared.
