OT- East/West College Bowl 2 - Key & Peele

Submitted by Paps on September 13th, 2013 at 2:33 PM

I realize this is OT, but hopefully this brings some laughter into everyone's Friday. Key & Peele (a sketch comedy group) made a college football skit last year called the East/West College Bowl.  It was incredbly popular, and has 17+ Million views on YouTube. You can see that HERE.

They have struck again this season, creating another East/West video that includes some of the following players:

Bisquiteen Trisket ... the Univeristy of Michigan

(Heisman Trophy Winner) Jammie Jammie-Jammie ... The Ohio State University 

Fudge... 

We don't know what school Fudge plays for, but he's a 350lb running back, and he is very good. 

Harvard Univeristy.... plays for: DeVry University

The link to the video is HERE... Enjoy, and Go Blue!

that Mergatroid Skittle was so close to committing to The University of Hawaii that he could taste the rainbow but he dropped them off his list when they changed their name to just the Warriors.

So feel free to tell me if I'm oversensitive, but isn't the gag for this (and the last one) pretty much "black people have funny names"?  I get that the point of a lot of comedy is to push boundaries, but this really seems like it's nothing but casual racism.

you realize its the same as whites calling hill billies billy bob Joe whatever names. I don't care if whites do that. I have a few black friends who watch and love that show, if I sent it to them they'd laugh and agree.

I'm not going to respond to any other replies to my initial comment, because other people have a right to feel how they will about this and I don't feel like trying to convince them.  So I just want to express my feelings here; make of them what you will.

I'm surprised and kind of saddened that this kind of content pops up on MGoBlog and seems to be endorsed by the majority of the community.  Yes, I get it, it's comedy, and probably isn't even that risqué by the standards of mainstream comedy.  But it's essentially "black people are like this," repeated for several minutes.  What's next - jokes stereotyping women?  Jokes stereotyping gay people?  There are plenty of places on the intenet where you can find borderline-offensive humor; I just didn't think of MGoBlog as one of them.

Don't get me wrong, I really like this community, and I think the far majority of you are intelligent, respectful posters.  That's what makes me so surprised that this seems to have worked here.

Perhaps the rest of the community reserves their concern for issues that are actually issues. You have worked yourself up over a harmless skit. If you find this skit border-line offensive then I don't see how you can visit MGoBlog at all. Many of the memes on this site stereotype other groups for comedic value. Your last four sentences or so make it seem as though you have never visited the site before.

You may also want to reconsider what the role of comedy is or can be in society.

I grew up in cali, my friends were multi cultured and the comedy they do is similar to what we did. Borders on racism but factual sometimes. I cant do that here in Virginia, they take it serious and....well my wife works at a hospital and runs into these names a lot here. She seriously had a pregnant girl excited to see her baby, take pics and then when asked to setup an appointment say she's having an abortion....I don't get people in Richmond, its a gutter of weirdos.

Isn't funny at all to me but I do find it funny white dog is concerned its offensive to African Americans. I wonder what Southerners think about Honey Boo Boo?

Well we are pointing and laughing up here... We like to say we are laughing with you rather than at you though.

I don't get how that, amongst some of your other "great" shows, gets on tv
