    Why? Because in this video he made blanket statements and generalizations? Sounds familiar to me :spin:

    He's speaking like he has sour stomach :10700: . His hatred for AA's is too intense for my tastes. Jerks like him in our communities are part of the reason for the so-called Black flight.

    Back on topic:

    You do know that pretty much all of his videos are satire, right? He's only made around one or two "out of character" videos. So there's no telling about this one.

    Satire is meant to criticize, and cuts deepest when it hits close to home. For the most part, I think Mr Pregnant is.. interesting. Down right funny sometimes. Often extremely dramatic and over the top - but cut out all the name calling and swearing - he isnt really saying anything new.

    In this African American piece, it wasnt being said to "impress whitey" - he "took on the character" of a SELLOUT to make a point. To put it in some context, this video was made as response to his first video about disliking rap - he received an enormous negative response from Black people, so he filmed another "part 2" Rap is Garbage video to clarify what he meant. When THAT didnt go down well either, he made this one - claiming to be white.

    Should mention he is not Carribean - he is Nigerian, living in New Jersey.

    Who told you that Zulile?

    I don't know where hes from for a fact, but has a very strong Carribbean (I would guess Trinidadian) accent and absolutely no trace of a Nigerian accent unless hes an excellent voice mimic.

    For the record I hate his so called humour, I've been to funerals I found funnier than this dimwit.

    I've heard his background mentioned a few times in various medias (US news/talkshows) - and when you watch/listen to his pieces that are not "comedy" - his accent is.. well, neither here nor there. (USA or Carribbean)

    I know several Nigerians whose accents have adapted to their audeince - and while talking to fellow Nigerians, it's more pronounced.. much like the Scottish ;) well - like me, too!
