  1. This could be a whole new, amazing genre of music.
    Songs that sound like they have racist subtexts but aren't.
    I love it.

  2. This is so me at 11 years old getting into trouble because i was jamming to "I wanna boom bang bang with your body-o we gonna rough it up before we take it slow" song! lol!

  3. " The bango'z are strummin! And the drum'z are a bangin! Let's get the boiiz together! And have ourselves a hangin! "😥😂…

  4. Is is pretty funny as a joke goes (the logic and punchline are there), but it's predicated on an ignorant picture of Country music. The "reliability" factor of the joke depends upon the people doing the relating not knowing. Reminds me of when that comedian with the puppet used to make jokes about Arabs and Al Qaeda.

  5. I love their videos. But it’s really hard for me to understand this one. Are those songs are real and racist or it’s just a joke?

  6. I think everyone should like this comment just how yall like them dumb ass comments that's literally quoting a line from the video we all jus watched

  7. “It seems like your about to sing the most racist song so far”
    “I’m not”
    pause
    “HADULADU LADILI GIVE ME ROPE AND FIND ME TREE”

  8. Some folks wear there hats all the way to the side with their pants down low and a gun tucked inside, take their beer by the 40 and their chicken deep fried I think we all know who were talking aabbboouutt….😂

  9. The insinuation that country music is racist because it is primarily sung by white people in the south is in itself a generalization; or stereotype. A pretty demeaning one.This skit isn’t very self-aware.

  10. Listen to country and then listen to rap and tell me which ones more racist. Like them both but rap is way more racist.

  11. Seems like black people need to keep bringing up racism because it’s pretty much non existent and they don’t want their victim complex to go away.

  12. These guys are great. They make fun of both sides. But please dont group Southern Americans with all other white Americans. Southern whites. Aka Confederates, aka racists, aka South. In Colorado we fought over who dated the black girl. I knew the Confederate Culture sucked back in the 70s.

  13. The body of work that these two have created together is second to none in the history of comedy…pure genius and absolutely hilarious…amazing entertainment. They deserve way more fame than they have.
