Key and Peele in a funny sketch on cultural cluelessness. Happy Juneteenth to U.S. members of SCF.

Not anymore!
Aw, shucks! I never get to the funny videos before You Tube takes them down "due to uproar".

What? I just checked, it's still up, still plays.

The message has been changed from uproar to not available in your country. Same result.

Shame on you, Canada! Do the Canuck censors understand that Key and Peele are a black comedy duo who are out to puncture blind spots about racism? I wonder if some algorithm flagged the video based on keywords, and somehow got it completely backwards. Wonder if I can find it on another platform that will make it across the northern border.

Hahaha. I thought they were going to end on Lynyrd Skynyrd. Birmingham does not bother them.

Hey, don't pile on our censors (they've yet to recover from the legalization of assisted dying manuals). According to the message, "the uploader has not made this video available in you country" ; I'm guessing it'sa copyright issue, like much of the Netflix and Prime entertainment to which I have no access.
I can live with the loss.

Oh. So I don't need to crank up my outrage machine, then. You do have me curious about copyright issues, so will look into. (I guess it would be some trouble to drive down near the border and try to pick up a strong Wi-Fi signal...)

Not even for Chicago Hope!
TX for caring, though.
