A whole bunch of folks sent this to me, so I guess it's already viral at this point, if not already getting there. According to YouTube, it's been played almost 350,000 times, after being made public on the video sharing site on December 16. 

It's a parody of Shit Girls Say, an immensely popular new web series (which started as a Twitter feed); this one is called Shit Black Girls Say, which was written By Lena Waithe, who I'm told is attracting some Hollywood attention because of the series which stars Billy Sorrells as "Peaches."

Watch the first of many to come below; Lena tells me that a second one is coming soon:

    ATTENTION.... ATTENTION WHORES!!! OPPS, LET ME EXPLAIN. But first @ ARTBIZZY, woman, how in the world did my comment directed at Ms. Blutopaz inspire this---> [ Carey, what got you so riled up that you had to go for the jugular? Not necessary and incredibly disrespectful to Black Mothers, Grandmothers, Sisters, Aunts, etc. not to mention yourself. Didn't we all come from a woman? ] ARTBIZZY, WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT??? Now, on another note:

    My mother once said: "Boy, lift up your head and pay attention to me".

    And a friend recently said: "Glad you've returned to blogging with a vengeance. (After one of the shortest retirements in blogging history, I might add. Some--not me, mind you--might call you attention wh*** behind that move. LOL)

    This post is not about my mother nor my friend. This post is about commenters in genral and the words "attention whore".
    Listen, throughout this thread I have heard reflections of "Carey is seeking attention", I asked myself what that meant. I most assuredly know it means different things to different people - okay. But I was left to wonder what they mean to me. Well, a whore is a promiscuous woman; a prostitute. To fornicate with whores is said to be whorish.
    Now dammit, where do I fit in ? I am not a woman, but I have been promiscuous. Maybe that's my tie-end. I did start my adventure into blogging without plans or a defined purpose. My subject matter has consisted of different elements mixed together without discrimination. Maybe that makes me a blog-man-whore? Nawl, I don't think they meant that.
    Let me hit this another way. About a month ago I was fed up with blogging. I announced my retirement. I did so as a promise to myself, because I thought it would talk to the man in me. I needed to take a position and stand on it. But, as you can see, I failed. Although in my heart I was done with blogging because of the pain and time spent doing such, I didn't know what was in front of me. Others said I would return... and they were right. Many said they've never seen a true blogger walk away. Some said to just take a break and then return with a new fire. Of course I resisted those words of wisdom because they didn't know me, but they did. They too had heard the call of retirement.

    When Brett Favre announced his retirement from football, I wonder if he did so with the intentions of coming back to draw attention to himself - I doubt it. I believe he came back to do what he does best - play football. I believe he loves the game. I love running my mouth and talking about movies and sharing ideas. I think the pain of playing football for 18 years was at the forefront of his announcement.

    Tell me this, if you ask a person to pay attention to you or your words, is that a bad thang? I mean, my mother told me to pay attention to her words, and she is a good woman. Are all bloggers and commenters attention whores? Granted there are some bloggers -- not many -- but some bloggers who could care less if someone reads their posts. I believe.... I think that kind of person is in the minority - minuscule for sure. Because, really, why post it if there was no intent to have someone read it? I am sure a cynic might say, "it's a way of releasing their mind and it has a cleansing affect on their soul". However, true cynics will piss on their own hands just to have something to complain about and blame on someone else. I say to that minuscule about of Harra Krista bloggers/comments and drive-by poster.... "do your thang baby, but all closed eyes ain't sleep"

    Having said alllllllll of that, are all who comment nothing more than nasty, promiscuous attention whores? Are we not in need of some form of attention? Well, alone a fool would think differently. I mean, why comment at all. Come on now, aside from the word "whore", do we all in some way seek an audience, and ultimately, hope they pay attention to our words?
    I don't care if it's a vent, a rant, a cry, a bitch and a moan, or some quasi-intellectual BS or a blog geared toward social commentary, isn't there something to be said about the human need to express themselves and thus be heard? I talk to audiences on a regular basis. In doing so, it's about my words and the message(s). Am I seeking attention? Hell yes, I hope someone is paying attention.

    Questions: Are you a blogger? Are you a drive-by commenter? Do you love talking about your interests? Are you an attention whore? If so -- or not -- what does those words mean to YOU? ATTENTION! I believe we should all write in invisible ink. Then we wouldn't have ass kissing brown nose butt suckers like TROLLDOG aka Zues, aka TROLLHUNTER, nor jealous and frustrated writers who can't seem to write anything that inspires a smile, a laugh or a second glance.

    Talk to me.

    fuck all of that shit. this shit is fuckin' funny, and if you don't like it, please make your own shit. fuckin' uptight ass academics. my god, i thought i was uptight and i am, but god damn.

    i guarantee you that no one on this entire thread that's criticizing this shit has attempted to ever even make a 3 minute sketch and if they have, i'm willing to wager that it's not even remotely funny.

    there are those that criticize and those that do. if you can do better and have dignified, truthful expressions of the black experience that you feel are more realistic, relevant and will prove entertaining, please share them shits or shut the fuck up. :-)

    thanks, bye!

  • BluTopaz | December 24, 2011 1:56 PM

    Oh and to answer Random Black's question a SECOND time (cuz they seemed to have ignored it the first time), Awkward Black Girl = "truthful expressions of the black experience that you feel are more realistic, relevant and will prove entertaining". Nelson George also had a very good comedy/drama webisode series that featured a mixed cast of predominantly Black women. Of course there are more examples, but I am not doing your homework for you. Or just keep getting your laugh on at all that fuckity fuckin funny ass shit-lol

  • BluTopaz | December 24, 2011 1:40 PM

    Random Black = Exhibit A

  • artbizzy | December 24, 2011 7:05 AM

    Oh come on, really? This just wasn't that funny to me. And I'm hella ignorant and far from uptight. No, I've never made a sketch comedy but I guarantee you if I did it would be funny as hell.

  • Nadine | December 24, 2011 2:39 AM

    ..."uptight a$$ academics", RANDOM!!! C'mon! 3 minute sketch? Here...I'll get you started... INT. DIDI'S SALON - DAY (Enter slim African-American woman with spandex and a copper weave on the phone as she approaches the receptionist's desk)... LAQUITA: Gyrllllll.... I don't know what to tell you. (The receptionist rolls her eyes and cocks her neck to the side)... RECEPTIONIST: Um...excuse me...EX-cuse me! (LaQuita turns to the receptionist and without a word then turns back to her conversation) LAQUITA: Hold on 'cause I'ma 'bout to check this chick. SHAMPOO STATION (Didi and Shareef are washing Ms. Jessie and LaToya's hair) SHAREEF: Didi. (Didi turns to see Shareef motioning his chin to the front of the salon)... DIDI: Oh, Lawd... Shareef, could you...? SHAREEF: (Sigh) What would you do without me? Hold on Ms. Jessie... (Shareef glides through the salon. As Shareef nears the commotion he starts to sing) SHAREEF: Ladies...Ladies, Ladies... I know ya'll mamas didn't raise you this way. CUT TO: ... I, I can't continue... this is so terrible, yet not...and more painful for me to write than for you to read (2 minutes for that tripe). ANYONE can pull stereotypes out of their "arses" (it's literally the LAZIEST of literary devices) but can Black people at least RAISE AN EYEBROW as to what garners "Hollywood attention" and what does not? Can Black people in the U.S. not just be happy seeing themselves up on screen no matter the condition?...and as for your last statement, I've been on it for years now... I'm tryin'! FADE OUT ;)

  • Darla | December 23, 2011 9:48 PMReply

    #nowreading: the smack down between Carey Carey, BlutoPaz and Nadine. Yes this webcast doesn't show the dignity of black women like Pariah, I Will Follow, Mississppi Damned, Daughter of the Dust, Claudine, For Colored Girls; but it is written by a black woman (I think?) and it is her perspective so she should be able to write what she wants to irregardless of how others will think about it. Right? I'm just supporting the black female screenwriter not the guy with the wig. Black girls need to do more than rock, we need to unite.

  • Bob | December 23, 2011 8:45 PMReply

    WTF is the problem? It specifically said it was a parody of the original, and plus he's a comedian, so i doubt he was trying to win an Oscar for best film here. it was mean to be funny, maybe not funny to all, but just because it may be offensive to some, dude still has a right to make what he wants. just because the character and subject matter has been done before, does that mean he can't do it again? it's called freedom of speech, he can make it, as an audience you can like it or not, and have your opinion, but remember your opinion is NOT the final say so on hat is considered art. we're all grown here, no need to attack people for a difference in taste or opinion, just keep it moving.

  • CareyCarey | December 22, 2011 6:56 PMReply

    BLUTOPAZ, HOW MANY TIMES DO i HAVE TO TELL YOU TO GET OFF MY JOCK! :-)Listen, every time I post, here you come attacking me. And now you're telling me to grow up? Please, you do realize that the world does not always agree with you, don't you? Besides, tis the season to be jolly but keep it up and you are going to make me act a fool up in here on yo dusty, angry, hate filled ass. Yeah, I said it, dusty, miserable and hateful ass. Why don't you try a smile and a little tenderness? Yes sir, move around outside your little Burrough and see the world from a different perspective. If not, you are going to drown yourself in your own sorrow.

  • CareyCarey | December 25, 2011 11:52 PM

    DAMN BLUTO, YOU JUST DO NOT GET IT! Listen, I am not going to spend to much more time with you because you are obviously lost. Take a look at what you said ---> "Then you want to try one of several tropes: either those angry black women, or over-educated black people with college degrees--sometimes both-- every time you get backed into a corner" . Backed in a corner? What comments are you talking about? You're stroking yourself. Listen, that statement tells me that you are much like the King and His New Clothes. You're missing the point. Wisdom, understanding and a false self images has absolutely nothing to do with an education, yet YOU don't seem to understand that. You're not witty nor wise and you care a little too much about what other folks think about you. More importantly, your whole demeanor screams angry. Hey, Zeus and Sergio called you the angriest woman on this board. Hell, they said that over a year ago, so don't blame me. Now you're up in here pissing a bitch about a damn web series. YEAH! A DAMN WEB SERIES! Woman, you and this thing we do is not that serious. And YOU are not changing the world. Think about that. When you cried and took your ball and ran home, NOBODY CALLED YOUR NAME. Think about that.

  • BluTopaz | December 24, 2011 1:03 PM

    "you are going to make me act a fool up in here"

    Carey, you make a fool of yourself everytime you log onto this site. Plus, you ain't got no jock which is part of your problem. You have issues beyond the scope of this video (which is why I am not dignifying it by analyzing it-this silliness is part of a bigger issue that Nadine has already detailed). Then you want to try one of several tropes: either those angry black women, or over-educated black people with college degrees--sometimes both-- every time you get backed into a corner. There is no other group of women who are subjected to this level of "comedy" at the same rate as Black women, and if there are people who want to debate that just accept it's beyond your level of comprehension and move on. Hell, even our First Lady is subjected to this ugliness by everyone from Chris Rock, elected officials and trailer trash because they know debasing ANY Black woman is an easy, cheap attention getter, including the soft spoken, highly educated and respected woman married to the President. This trend has escalated so much recently, and the enablers of it are just as bad as the ones spewing this nonsense. I don't give a ish if the word "parody" is in the title of this video, why are there always Black people who want to ape the same foolishness they see caucasians doing? Blacks are the only people in the world who fight for their right to show their ass and call it comedy. And it's not about not having a sense of humor. Google Drunk History for the episode of Don Cheadle playing Frederick Douglas. On paper a comedy about a drunk White girl narrating a story about the abolition of slavery is beyone suspect, but imo the skit is funny as hell. And men in drag can be funny too, Shenaynay from Martin STILL cracks me up to this day but guess what--it's been over a decade since that show went off the air and I have lost count how many Black males decided to hide their manhood for a few minutes (including your 6'8" hero) to "parody" the ugliest, dumbest characteristics of Black women cuz it's easy. Sure I have seen Black women who show these traits, just like I have seen countless loud, obnoxious women of all races. I don't see numerous skits of 'loud angry jewish woman' etc. Where are all the funny skits of angry Black men who shoot into crowds when they are disrespected because that is a reality also (admittedly there is one hilarious scene in Chasing Amy that touches on that). But if there are people who want to counter these images of Black women you should either ask yourself why it pisses you off so, or respectfully disagree and speaking of expanding boundaries, go see if a certain film will be playing in that cowtown you live in. Happy Holidays.

  • CareyCarey | December 24, 2011 12:36 AM

    @ Nadine, I realize and understand exactly what you're saying (always have) however, the tone of your comments seemed to vilify those who enjoy this form of art and it's producers, which I believe is shortsighted (And many have disagreed with you and your position). Really, as I said before, you're fighting and standing for a good cause but I don't believe this is the proper forum to fight racial and gender issues. Heck, it never has been but the debates will continue. I mean, granted, some movies are used as propaganda, yet other are not. But I doubt you can bring me one movie that changed your life for the good or the bad. Again, it's so cheap and easy to talk about "history and modern crisis of Black imagery" however, it's generally nothing but fodder and talking point for big talkers. You know, the dressing to impress folks. Big peacocks is what I call them. Now, reference " Let's see the Asian (underrepresented population) or Jewish (protected population) versions and see how well those are received in Hollywood". Nadine, I don't know if you were born in the states, but I have to remind you that the j population made and is Hollywood. Yet, if you know your history of American entertainment, Jewish comedians have been mocking themselves since silent pictures. In fact, one of the first comedians on television who dressed in drag was a white Jewish fellow. Hundreds of Jewish men have followed him. And yes, Bluto and I have a history. We were cool as cool can be but something went left. Lastly, I am sure you understood what I meant by the collateral damage of political correctness? Let me break it down one last time. I used Amos and Andy as a reference because in 1953 the NAACP (Roy Wilkens) insisted that the show be taken off the air. CBS caved in to their wishes, but black folks had showed their hands. So they came back with a new and uglier whipping stick... a raggedy ignorant talking junk man named Fred Sanford and wild talking aunt Esther. Now, as the world turns the NAACP was one of the leading voices behind The Help. Nadine, something went wrong. I've seen every episode of Amos & Andy (78 episodes) and if I was the type who worried about "black imagery" in art, I would put it up against any "black" comedy of the last 10 years.

  • Nadine | December 23, 2011 7:48 PM

    @CAREYCAREY - Sooo...here's what's interesting about you and BLUTOPAZ. Neither of your "back and forths"are within the vacuum of this posting or this video. There is clearly history and a larger context between you two, yes? @CAREYCAREY, based on BLUTOPAZ's two pretty benign comments below, I would have thought that your statement, to which I ORIGINALLY replied regarding lonely angry black chicks, would have been directed towards me given that I basically damned Lena Waithe and Billy Sorrels to hell. This is my point, this video and the content of this video is not within the vacuum of Shadow and Act or even the two people who created it. There is a larger context, history and modern crisis of Black imagery, specifically for Black women, in the U.S. that these people are not only participating in, but benefiting from by "attracting some Hollywood attention"... Let's see the Asian (underrepresented population) or Jewish (protected population) versions and see how well those are received in Hollywood. There is this freedom to not only sh!t on Black women, but to be rewarded financially for it (still waiting on that Jamie Foxx/Martin Lawrence "Wanda" movie), two "boys" on youtube getting over 22 million hits for the Top 60 Ghetto Black names - all female names. This is a problem, so it is scary to see how many black folks with a camera, in the U.S., are just NOT getting it right. Anyway, I hope that everyone agrees to disagree and move on because you both always have interesting contributions to the comment boards that I've seen in my short time on S&A. S&A posted a response to this video from Robin Thede and Inda Craig-Galvan: http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowandact/and-it-continues-watch-sh-t-black-guys-say-response-to-sh-t-black-girls-say-viral-hit...

  • BluTopaz | December 22, 2011 9:57 AMReply

    Nadine don't waste too many keystrokes on a handkerchief head who not only insists on using Amos & Andy as a reference for sho nuff knee slappin (I think his calendar stopped around 1953), but he always comes off angriest when Black people don't go for the okeydoke. That's when he is not counting stats on other people's blogs, or obsessed with films he claims to be appalled by. But its other people who are lonely and angry. Grow the fuck up, Carey, or grow some balls one.

  • trollhunter | December 22, 2011 6:16 PM

    LOL @ Bluetopaz!

  • CareyCarey | December 22, 2011 6:02 PM

    Lookie here, the real angry pigeon has come home to roost! I knew you'd smell your own hole. And please, please lets not talk about growing a pair of nuts because it has become glaringly obvious that you wish you had a johnson and a pair. It is awfully strange that you never talk about your man at home. Listen Blutopaz, your arms are too short to box with me, so pick on someone else. Besides, your closet is too dark and too big.

  • CareyCarey | December 22, 2011 9:57 AMReply

    @Nadine, WOW Nadine, you came loaded with both barrels on full blast. But check this, my comment was not directed at you. However, since you're here, lets do the damn thang. First, I am not going to follow you down that hazy detour you've constructed. OH NO, you've ventured off to a land of no return. So lets get back on course. Listen, I said:



    "In the American cultural revolution known as political correctness, the enthusiastic devotion to a cause or goal with which some people attack PERCEIVED offenses to good taste, often results in COLLATERAL DAMAGE to genuine artistic achievement". Okay, that's what "I" said and that's my basic point. AND, it's the truth which cannot be denied. Look, even though you're fighting a good fight for a good cause i.e., moral values, women's rights, fatherhood or lack there of, it's a fact that everyone does not agree with your positions. Consequently, there will always be some form of collateral damage when politics and "power" and the loudest voices - from whomever - sticks their hands in the artistic expression pie. Now, my quote of Henry Louis Gates was merely used as a counterpoint to the frequently misunderstood and mislabeled black folks who welcome and understand artistic expressions such as Tyler Perry's and Lee Daniels. Furthermore, based solely on the quote, I see nothing wrong with it. It was his opinion. If you have a problem with Henry Gates Jr, take that up with him. Lastly, although I said I was not going to follow you down your Jericho Road, I have to address one of your most perplexing comments HERE---> "hanging round the non-folk which, in your minds, makes you somehow superior given their acceptance of you, get on your high-horses about how imagery in the U.S. for each culture is basically equal - baseline for everyone, therein lies the problem.". Now Nadine, you will surely have to explain that one. I mean, hanging round the non-folks? Who? Me? Me think you have the wrong fellow. What... sitting on a high horse??? Who? Me? Me think you have the wrong man. Besides, who said anything about each culture being equal? I DID NOT!! In short, this web series was amusing and at times I laughed. I see you found nothing funny about it and I am simply questioning why and what does it have to do with the color of your skin or my skin or BayBays kids?

  • CareyCarey | December 21, 2011 11:20 PMReply

    OH BOY, HERE WE GO AGAIN... LONELY AND ANGRY BLACK CHICKS DOING WHAT THEY DO BEST! Wait, don't make your move to soon. Listen, I'm talking about the same man-less chickies blowing off their frustrations at what they perceive as "beneath them". Look, this web series is not Shakespeare nor was it meant to be. I mean, it's humor and it was amusing. I saw several black chicks that I've seen (and know) in dude's performance. AND some of this mess was funny. But again, some black chicks get mighty angry at black dudes in drag. And for the life of me I don't know why? Hell, follow the bouncing ball... 1. Dustin Hoffman 2.) Patrick Swayze 3.) Tony Curtis 4.) Jack Lemmon 5.) Robin Williams 6.) John Travolta 7) Johnny Depp 8.) Jude Law 10.) Adam Sadler. ALL OF THOSE BIG STARS HAVE DRESSED IN DRAG! So tell me, why don't we hear white folks talking that dumb shit about "our race". How and why does a video like this become a "race" issue? I know what it is, some boring, humorless black chicks, can't find a man so they take it out on men in the movies while they're waiting to exhale? Seriously, WTH is the big deal? Wait, I know what it is! It's not Uppity vs coons nor the uneducated vs the geniuses. It's a simple case of the collateral damage of misplaced political correctness. Come on, y'all know how it goes. In the American cultural revolution known as political correctness, the enthusiastic devotion to a cause or goal with which some people attack perceive offenses to good taste, often results in collateral damage to genuine artistic achievement. *TRANSLATION: Some Negroes will point fingers at an artist and his or hers artistic expressions when said art does not agree with their ideologies, lifestyle or false self image.



    As Henry Louis Gates Jr. recalled in "Colored People" his memoir about growing up in Piedmont, W.Va.,: "Everybody loved 'Amos and Andy.' The day they took 'Amos and Andy' off the air was one of the saddest days in Piedmont. As far as we were concerned, the foibles of Kingfish or Calhoun were the foibles of individuals who happened to be funny."

  • trollhunter | December 24, 2011 12:07 PM

    @Artbizzy -- Carey has insulted Monique's children before by calling them BeBe's kids before so no, he has no shame. he is a bitch ass troll who seeks attention because he is a loser in real life. He will deny it but Monique commented on it herself on one of the podcasts. Carey is an asshole.

  • artbizzy | December 24, 2011 6:54 AM

    @careycarey Are you okay? No, seriously. This ain't you. Where is the love, my brother? I know the Holiday times can bring things up for folks but daaaaang. Now, I'm concerned. This rant right here was not cool at all. What got you so riled up that you had to go for the jugular? Not necessary and incredibly disrespectful to Black Mothers, Grandmothers, Sisters, Aunts, etc. not to mention yourself. Didn't we all come from a woman? Lonely and angry? You sure you're not talking about yourself? Boring and humorless black women? Really? Do you live in a box in a hallway in an alley under a rock or something? You're a writer right? Hey, here's some advice: Try writing all the insulting shit (especially the stuff about black women) out in a shiny notebook with an Amos and Andy sticker on the cover, get the vitriol out of your system, wipe your eyes, take a deep breath then type out your strong opinions onto the computer leaving the insulting, unnecessary stuff out, you know the stuff that makes you look like an ass, when I know you are not an ass, careycarey. Anyway, just a suggestion. Happy Holidays!

    *American Black Patriarchy*

  • Nadine | December 22, 2011 6:36 AM

    Yes, it is my being a lonely Black chick that makes me "uppity". Do you even understand how stupid that word makes the user sound (not that you used it). I love how a Black woman being without a man, and what's interesting...a Black man, ('cause as much as you all hate Black women, ya'll are ready to spit in our faces when we're not giving you our ultimate attention because you all feel entitled to it), is supposed to be an insult. Good riddance... I wouldn't wish your brand of garbage on my worst enemy. Citing Henry Louis Gates, Jr.? Now who thinks they're the genius? You don't even get that that is a problem...Gates? You may want to try Angela Davis: Women, Race and Class, son... Misplaced political correctness? When and where is it best placed? PLEASE, tell me when, cause you pseudo-intellectual Negroes who got a little edumacation, speak a little MAE, hanging round the non-folk which, in your minds, makes you somehow superior given their acceptance of you, get on your high-horses about how imagery in the U.S. for each culture is basically equal - baseline for everyone, therein lies the problem. Political correctness? You seriously pulled that out? I do not for a second believe that you, CAREYCAREY, do not have critical thinking skills, but this is some basic comparison "ish" that my 10 year-old nephew can peep on his own. I also think there is a special glee in talking about the state of the Black Woman experience from vitriolic Black men if it is interpreted as a negative reflection on Black women. Real b!tch behavior. A kind of bullying by Black men because their imagery is not being taken to task. As Black Women lay back while getting stomped by Black patriarchy, Black fatherhood is being lauded in the mainstream while only 20% of them practice it...talk about imagery, Black women WAY outnumber Black men in medical school, but you won't see that on the tele unless they fall into stereotype...ask Mekhi, Omar, the dudes from Grey's, or any show about doctors. You're cool. You all haven't worked for anything other than being the proverbial "cabana boys" of the industry with all the perks. Hollywood finds a way to include Black men to the exclusion of Black mothers, daughters, Black women in general 'cause no BW are not sucking their ****s...that's y'all. I don't expect you to agree, but again, being individualistic, you only see your own experience and laugh at the state of those whom you believe to be less fortunate. Lonely black chicks? Not here pool boy... , I think this is the best time for Black women to re-evaluate their, according to misguided Black men, seemingly pathetic lives. I think this time is so necessary for Black women to stop carrying the water for Black men who hate Black women. The glee that sick Black men get at making Black women feel like they are unwanted...man, that is some sucker nonsense where real Black MEN cringe. BTW - HAP-PILY married to my LOVELY mandingo for many, many years. The envy of most marriages whatever the culture. *smile* I smile because he's my baby and he loves who he is. No apologies. Mandingo or not, BW, need men who will be able to help raise their children without this self-loathing you all seem to exhibit. You all don't even know how diseased you are.

  • Random Black | December 21, 2011 1:30 PMReply

    So everything that Black folk put out these days has to be equivalent to Danny Glover's messianic, would-be masterpiece, "Toussaint?" What sort of humor about Black people can be allowed, these days, with you joylessly uppity Negroes? You mean to tell me that you all don't actually know any Black women that act/do/say any of these things? I laughed mostly because I found that I recognized so many of these traits in people that I actually know and love. It's not like it's "Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls #8." I mean, "grab me my purse," "delete," the weave patting, I don't know that any of this is necessarily inherently offensive. Have you all hung out with any young, Black women in any metropolitan area across the country, recently? Have a fucking sense of humor. Jesus. #HYFR

    Only fools use the word "uppity". Fools who dig their own graves and jump right on in. So, what you're basically saying is that your thought processes are soooo pedantic that you don't even know what you don't know. There is no having a conversation with you. Yes, and we MUST keep an eye on what de white folks is doin so we knows what wes can do too! Problem is, they doin' a lot we ain't doin', but dis...we dos. Is they doin a movie where they chilren is rapin' they daddy? Oh, no..we got dat. Get global, travel and figure out that one region of Black people, do not an entire population make. If you can't think more deeply than dropping "uppity" on the world, then your contribution to the world is not worth the computer your typing on.

    Yes, "uppity." What kind of Black folks have you met in your lives? Y'all mean to tell me you have never seen a young Black woman pat her weave, ask you to get her purse, tell you that she's annoyed because it's cold or go off on someone on the phone?

    And what does individualism have to do with it? There are scores of people that I know, Black women included, that I have spoken to that have shared this and find it funny, as well. Lost and desperate? Get your head out of your condescending ass.

    Also...there's a sketch called "Shit that Girls Say" which features a White guy in drag doing what is--dare I say the exact same schtick. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-yLGIH7W9Y - is that "coonery," too?

  • Nadine | December 21, 2011 4:37 PM

    Uppity? Yea... that's it. That's the MAJOR problem here. It's never about a larger issue because you all can never see past your own individualism... lost & desperate...

    Check out the Awkward Black Girl threads for a well received comedy series, note it's not another coon in drag performance. But if a character like this reminds you of loved ones, enjoy!

    Relax. Don't y'all see the word "parody" above? She also just got her own short film into the 2012 San Diego Black Film Festival - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2078720/

    Tyler Perry got y'all in a deep funk LoL.

  • Darla | December 23, 2011 9:50 PM

    I agree that the lady shouldn't be demonized; but your argument is not helped with San Diego Black Film Festival, I'm sorry.

    the only part that was remotely funny was when he started quoting drake's "marvin's room" , otherwise that sh1t that was dry as hell and i'm sorry i watched it and added to the view count.

    the white version is stupid, too.

  • BluTopaz | December 20, 2011 8:45 PMReply

    how about a response video, Shit Untalented Morons Say About Black Girls.
    Danny Glover has spent years trying to get a Toussaint film made, and this trash might get funding--this Lena chick sounds like a class A slave catcher. F' her.

    So this guy is getting acclaim for ripping off another guy's idea. What can't get turned into a TV show and/or movie these days?

  • AI | December 20, 2011 3:58 PMReply

    *man

  • AI | December 20, 2011 3:58 PMReply

    @politicallyincorrect The original White one had a mad in drag too.

  • Monique | December 20, 2011 3:55 PMReply

    It was funny, I only hope it stays a viral video. I don't think I could sit through a weekly dose of this starring a man in drag. For a one off on the web it's fine but for a television series? O-M-G, no!

  • Nadine | December 20, 2011 3:22 PMReply

    "Hollywood attention"... Lena and Billy, hell is waiting for you people... spreading this poison. Have fun hob-nobbin' with the rest of the c***s while Hollywood laughs at you (not with you) ... in your downtime, you might want to pick up a little Carter G. Woodson...

  • Nadine | December 24, 2011 1:54 AM

    Dude...it's poison... and I would, and do tell people in person, so don't doubt that. All that to say, do your thing, but as much as you have a right to use others in your expression of humor, do others have the right in the expressing of their opinions...and really...is this thread with its 30 odd comments anything in comparison to the 975,000 people, you cite, taking that trip with ya'? I wouldn't stress it... BTW - Here's another video with a lot of hits, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCdmiZyyGjQ - it wasn't original then either...they just had a camera.

    Here, I'll just get this over with... Your Response: STFU Bithc! - OK? Done. You'll be fine.

  • Nadine | December 24, 2011 1:25 AM

    ...see now...because you're writing in caps, I'm thinking that you're upset...

  • Billy Sorrells | December 23, 2011 8:58 PM

    FCUKL CARTER G WOODSON I AM A IGNORANT NIGGA I DONT GIVE A FCUK YEAH I SOLD OUT NIGGAS AIN SHIT ITS ABOUT POWER FUNNY . RESPONSE SO I ASSUME 975,000 PEOPLE ARE GOIN TO HELL TO ... FUCK OUTTA HERE WHAT HAVE U DONE WE KNOW ABOUT YOU

  • Darkan | December 20, 2011 2:52 PMReply

    Don't even get me started. There will ALWAYS be one brother that will do what ever it takes to get a laugh and be funny for fame and become Hollywood fodder. Unfortunately, here's another one. This character has been done so many times through out black history that black women should be fed up with the stereotype. This has gotten old. SMH.

  • Cynthia | December 20, 2011 2:05 PMReply

    LoL @ the weave "head pat"

  • politicallyincorrect | December 20, 2011 1:49 PMReply

    It was kinda funny, I don't think it needed a man in a wig to be funny, it would have equally been funny with an actual woman in the role. I thought black men were sick of the whole cross dressing stereotype
