HILARIOUS VIDEO: Black Substitute Teacher

By Debbie Schlussel

I like Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele of Comedy Central’s Key & Peele because they’re politically incorrect on all counts and make fun of everyone. I’ve posted their videos before on this site (here and here). And this one is very funny and a great statement on the Black culture of “unique” kids’ names. (I have a great post on that coming up soon. Stay tuned.)


Check it out . . .

I was expecting it to be lame because of soft racism where blacks’ achievements are exaggerated much like how one goes over the top in praising a preschoolers finger-painting, but that was a really very funny sketch.

Thanks, Debbie.

I just saw the other videos you posted. These guys are great.

I like their humor, but I’ve heard these guys interviewed and they are some upside down, wacked out libs to the core. Big time.

Never heard of them before but that was funny, you could see it actually happening years from now. Sort of reminded me of the Wayans bros. In Livin’ Color theme.

    You might remember then from “MadTV.”

Ha, ha. It’s even funnier if you’re a closet racist.
Until you remember who’s wearing the pants that is.
Gender role sentinels probably don’t get disoriented like that though.

Go to the inner city and everything about Blacks is always opposite of American values by choice.

The Chosen One on June 23, 2013 at 7:55 pm

There is an additional point made by the video. Many inferior teachers, including those who are Black, place more emphasis on ‘controlling their classes’ than on really teaching anything. This teacher is clearly limited in intelligence, but is strongly committed to controlling his classes. Aside from the exaggerations in the video, he would probably be regarded by many in the education ‘profession’ as a good teacher.

You would think he is ridiculing the silly (“Least likely to succeed” names), but this is liberal humor ridiculing “honky” names. That is the modern black humor.

    Pat, I saw it very differently. I saw it as a spoof on “tough inner-city teacher” genre and a parody of a teacher who has dealt with the crazy names of inner-city kids so long, he no longer knows how to recognize regular sounding names. The “D-Nice” bit was classic!!!

I do not find this particularly amusing.

That video is priceless. I first saw it a couple of months ago and still laugh about it today. However, I can see how some people may not find it funny and thus did not send it on to those people…

Aye aye Ron.

I can understand the thought behind it, but, I didn’t think it was funny. Not offensive, just not funny, kind of like something from the guy at work that tells the lamest jokes. It was something lame, trying to poke fun at something even lamer.

Ironically I’ve actually seen this in real life. I do have to say that it was funny, but kind of sad. Thanks once again Debbie.

I am a white guy from Chicago. I did eight years in Hawaii with the Navy. In Hawaiian language (or at least the transliteration thereof), every letter in every word gets pronounced. After a few years in the islands, I drove past a hand painted sign in “the Country” (northwest side of Oahu), that said “Male Goats, $40”. I was puzzled what “Ma lay Goats” were. After a couple miles down the road it occurred to me that “Ma lay Goats” referred to their sex as in “male goats”, not point of origin or other adjective. The process of cultural assimilation can have unexpected manifestations.

    Would cultural assimilation necessitate making the same error five times in a row, and being resistant to corrections?

    Little Al on June 24, 2013 at 10:20 am

Key & Peele’s first Luther video is funny too.

Lee on June 24, 2013 at 9:49 am

I bet he is from detoilet!

bruce on June 24, 2013 at 10:19 am

Holy shiite, that is farking fabulous

Jack on June 24, 2013 at 11:56 am

Unbelievable Pat, how can you turn a funny skit into some political b.s. Its not ridiculing honky names, its actually goofing on blacks and the ebonically pronounced names people hear.
Lil Al, who would deem this character, thats right a character a good teacher?, They’re obviously showing the teacher’s ignorance. Amazing, just enjoy the joke. lol

Big D on June 24, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    Well said, Big D. It’s distressing to see people are so hyped up politically and racially that they can’t even relax and enjoy a damn comedic skit…

    Miles Browning on June 24, 2013 at 3:36 pm

As always when “black culture and unique names” as an issue comes up, I wonder why the Utahns and/or Mormons are forgotten. Why are they exempt from the scrutiny that Shaquita and Licious and LaToya bring about? My favorite entries from the Utah Baby Namer, authored by a married couple from Utah, compiling all manner of names from the Beehive State (state bird of this landlocked state: seagull).

Girls: Chinchilla Zest, Cimemthymia, Jarna Nazhalena, Mormon Miracles, Qylci, Superstar Five, and X Y Zella.

Boys names are a bit less precious, but still of note are: Admanzah, Bridger A-10, Chevrollette, Daxson Ekewaka, Knight Train, Quejah, Synjyn, Treckqulind, and Vernal Independence.

I don’t get it.

Great line.
