I saw this last nite and I was dying...
i just found it on nbc site:
that is rather funny ... that dude be making fun of a different kind of music each week L0L
i saw last night was laugh nuh stop
at the silence
when he passed by de real rastas.
I don't find the the clip funny, making fun of other peoples beliefs in THAT way is nothing to sit and laff about. If they would do the same sketch with ex: Islam I'm sure people would get offended, and its BS like that, that offends all the real rastas out there.
i didn't really find it funny... i'm not even a ras.. i just thought it was in poor taste...
when he walked by the real ras dem.. dem shoulda kick up him claat
1980 - 2010
a true Queen
A smile that could brighten any room
Miss you already
I didn't think it was poking fun at rastafari but rather at white guys who misappropriate rasta/jamaican culture especially when they have a middle/upper class upbringing. I thought it was very funny especially since I am a white guy who listens to reggae. People sometimes asked me why I don't dress like I listen to reggae or why i don't grow dreads. This video is the perfect reason. And the scene where he passes the dreads on the street KILLED me. I saw this a lot growing up when these kids who listen to third wave ska music would call themselves "rude bwoys" and chat the worst patois ever but would never dare walk into a real dancehall show. Anyway...I'm on the verge of a rant.
jah kno when me see it i was offended but when mi get to the end mi kinda realize say it was the white guy dem did a mek fun of. at the silence forreal hol him head down and whisper dat was the only funny part to me still.
unno nuh find it di LEAST bit ignorant?
yep definetly ignorant but you have to have a sense a humor to a nuff people dem mek fun of it look like the joke was more on teh renta dread to me..
dat shit is not funny. him a violate rasta. tek the ting fi poppy show.
its saturday nite live so take the shit with a grain of salt.. for the record, i have white dread frens who i respect but there are commercial dreads both white n black.. i didnt find it funny cuz it was disin but the way he does his thing... lilke makin the connection to the murder she wrote ole chick L0L..
