  1. This is exactly what talking to a Republican feels like, and all the b.s. excuses they come up with to try to hide all their racist crap..

  2. welp, this youtube vortex just caught me and I think I like it haha good on ya K&P – keep the hilarity a rollin

  3. Lmfao this is not what country music is about lol this is some hootenanny chick shit lol like racist records from the boondocks lmfao

  4. I sung the 2nd song to my black friend and i'm now dead with the boys and we got ourself some cold ones so why do you pop me a few keks and throw a few fs in the chat because fuck yeah

  5. "Ha da la da la dee dee. Get me a rope and find me a tree."
    Took me a while to catch my breath in this part. 😂😂🤣🤣

  6. He Should of Sung This one here and bet he'd be Fine singing and scratching those guitar cords along.. LLOOLL!!!…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKGNvo8WTrA

  7. If he had said he was superior to black people then he would have been racist. Saying things that are true simply by observing that race doesn't make a person racist. They are just telling the truth

  8. I keep accidentally start whistling that first song while I'm at work until I catch myself. Then i just feel kinda guilty.

  9. The line about the tire-swing makes me wonder if the songs were really innocent country songs with easily misunderstood lyrics. Then I wonder what the other songs may have actually been about.

    Edit: never mind. I’m pretty sure the girl in the first song symbolizes America and the lines about keeping her safe from the wrong side of town could represent keeping foreigners out of the country. The line about keeping her dress pure and white as opposed to “dirty and brown” has some questionable implications. The dress could easily represent the population which is pretty and white but loses its beauty when “tainted” by minorities. Specifically black people. Who would have thought that the first song was secretly one of if not the most offensive one in the sketch? I just hope none of these songs are real though they likely are. If not, then they are most certainly based off of similarly racist folk songs.

  10. You should include a line " 13 percent commit half of the crime, I'll show you the stats if you give me some time"

  11. Soooooooo most people who likes country music are racist? Steppin' on people is funny though, right? The funniest skits Key & Peele does are ones that don't have race at the core. Oh wait, they all have race at the core. That's where we are as a people!

  12. Best part of this is his subtle hints at being uncle tom like him winking at beginning but than him at end revealing he really has no clue he grew up with racist friends

  13. So this is what happens when an old country-music-loving white man's brain being transplanted into a young black man's body.
