VIDEO: Brigham Young Students Answer Questions About Black People
You might want to take a few deep breaths before checking out this video.
Stand-up comedian Dave Ackerman went to Brigham Young University in black face, and asked the incredibly white student body a series of questions to test their knowledge of Black history and culture.
Words cannot even begin to describe the outstanding levels of ignorance radiating from this video.
You’ll laugh, you’ll scream, and you might even need a little therapy after this one.
“Yes ― I enjoy my fried chicken. HELL, every now and then I too indulge in some grape soda. But to know our culture is seen as chicken and grape soda lovers, having too much attitude, z-snapping, smacking lips, and the ‘sah-curity’ is quite baffling. Matter of fact, I’m quite embarrassed. Here it is 2012 and we are still struggling to break away from the never-ending stereotypes. Did the BYU students forget about POTUS and FLOTUS? Damn. Give us some credit.
So what do you say? How do we breakaway from such titles and social stigmas? Are we to blame, the media (ie. Sh*t Black Girls Say, Friday) or the lack of color on BYU’s campus? Speak up!”
