  1. Half black and half white if that’s how they see themselves that’s alone is comedy in its self 🤣😂🙌🏿

  2. i just can't believe they actually know who Ladysmith Black Mambazo is. As a South African that was pretty cool

  3. I can't stop myself from mimicking speech patterns. I've always said that if I moved to a different English speaking country, I would develop their accent in no time. I have actually tried to keep a consistent vernacular, and I can't. Whatever social group I'm with, I will start talking like them. It gets cringy real fast, but I can't stop it.

  4. If Jordan Peele and and director Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar) teamed up to make a movie. Knowone would ever sleep again!

  5. That Ladysmith Black Mambazo refecence though! My niggas… First off, H I L A R I O U S. Secondly, I didn't even know the group! Getting to know them was awesome, and being black while doing that only made it better

  6. What’s ironic is there black accent impression sounded like a white dude try to impersonate a black accent. Lmao

  7. I try my hardest to speak properly. I don’t adjust that for anyone. Whether I’m at work, or in the projects talking to a couple gangsters. If anyone has an issue with it they can assume what they want about me. I. Just. Don’t. Give a fuck.

  8. 😂🤣😂i literally read a book every morning to mah job dat be wayy down souff bwoi…. my speech becomes brother 2 bruhh…. hope i remember where im at

  9. I got a black friend who talks n sounds white. But when his cousins from the hood visits he starts acting super hood too lol

  10. I find it hilarious.
    If a white person said something about"sounding black" people would lose their ever loving little SJW minds…

  11. The world needs more people like this, who can just make fun of race and no one loses their minds and just enjoys it.

  12. Sometimes around my black friends or younger friends I catch myself using horrible Ebonics and I have to stop immediately

  13. This is racist. So what you’re saying is sounding articulate is a white thing? You have to sound like an idiot to be black? Quite racist if you ask me.

  14. this is called code switching and literally everyone does it, key and peele just wrote a 2 min routine on their own experience with it. some of yall in the comments are really taking it too far lmao

  15. I have always been the whitest sounding guy in the room. My daughter got in lots of fights in high school because people said she was trying to be white. It can be a problem. I guess black people are not supposed to use proper grammar and diction? I guess.

  16. They should have Polish or Russian accent. :3 Strong eastern european accent with a bit of broken grammar… it would be whitey-white accent too!

  17. Get the fuck out of here…HEY BLACK PEOPLE…or should I say DEAR BLACK PEOPLE? White people, if they arent liberals, dont give a shit…do what you do…just get off the dick…I know its a joke, but people rally do obsess over this bullshit.

  18. I’m from Texas, and the most “country” part you can get. That being said when I roll back through my hometown in East Texas, my southern twang shoots up a couple octaves.
