Best interview of the year
Apparently McDonalds HQ wants to speak to him, presumably to give him something for all of the free advertising/PR.
Charles Ramsey T-Shirt: Cleveland Restaurant Raises Money For Missing Women's Families
Too bad it's not McDonalds.
I don't think there is any underlying racial reasons why sweet brown, ramsey ambalamps and bubb rubb became viral autotuned hits....more to do with how their comments had a catchy ring to it that lent itself to a remix (the whistles go wooooooo!). But for many educated black people who have had to overcome discrimination and stereotypes, they see these instances as setbacks.And here's why you should all feel guilty about this.
Edit: at least white people should feel guilty about this. I think. Or something.
I agree. And if you look at some of the family members interviewed, they fit ALL kinds of other stereotypes...I don't think it's troubling in the slightest. He's an outspoken man, who clearly has 'the gift of the gab' - he is entertaining for that reason alone. We find him amusing because his delivery is magnetic.
There's no need to apply racial or economic labels to this guy - he's just funny, period.
