    People have gotten so used to dumbed down music, they can't see the thought and satire behind this video. Someone really said, "So black people should copy white shows?" Ya'll need to read a book, or get some smart friends so they can explain life to you. To understand the video, you have to understand the song. "Even when we win, we lose". Winning=money , Lose= self respect, soul etc. Doing things just for the money, or what you think other people want to see, hear.. No one caught the gay joke.. Putting black men in dresses, gay roles etc. "Maybe a little too comfortable". There's all types of gems here. Issa telling him to be quiet. Don't ruin it for us. Woke enough to notice. Not strong enough to care or say anything. Alot of things wrong with the entertainment industry. Videos like this aren't creating racial tension. People STILL deny racism. STILL. Videos like this Educate and bring light to things people may not notice or know is going on. Cultural Appreciation still alive they just be concealing it!!

    Friends was a good show because of the acting and the cast and I'm saying this as a black person.Diversity is a good thing and there should be more of it but don't shout people to make a show or anything diverse for the sake of it otherwise we'll get half baked characters just shoe horned in

    Is it just me or did the guy in the suit look like a cross between Clifton Powell and Fabolous? But anyway, here's my story...years ago I was supposed to have been on an underground record label outta Cali but my friends started acting shady and claimed that I was too underdeveloped and old school for them so I was left out. To prove them wrong I put my ssame demo songs that I recored with them on YouTube and now I have over 500 subs. So if you like old school rap then thumbs me up so I can show them that real 90s-style hip hop still has an audience in 2017. Thanx y'all!!!

  • Shrew Boy

    I'm sorry, but the idea behind this video is incredibly hypocritical. Should white Americans condemn rap for being 99% made up of African-Americans, such as JayZ? NO, because rap is a hallmark of African-American culture, just as the sit-com was born out of European culture. Would remaking The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air with exclusively white actors prove anything? NO, it would just be a colossal waste of time. You can't implore one ethnic group to take pride in their culture while at the same time satirising another ethnic group's culture in the same album. That's a lil bit racist, and an example of the same bigoted nationalism that lead to slavery.

    Everyone should look up the dates on the shows they are talking about some people dont realize how old certain shows are. This was an annoying video, it was uninteresting, sounded weird, and delivered a message that is very obvious and portrayed it in a complex manner. This is simple pandering, people that want to change things do, they dont pretend to talk about it.

  • Band By Right

    Meaning:
    This video points out how performers create things that they hope will be well received:
    only to find out that people think its 'garbage.'
    When Joey got a text on his cell phone, he is being told how to act
    Then ross wants to sneak out of his own life, which is brilliant but bland off the set
    It feels scripted, especially when joey scurries off in the background to get some of Monica's "fat cider"
    It shows that If 'Friends' was an all black cast, it would still be entertaining, because of the formula.
    What most viewers neglect is the amount of time put into planning a show's performance, and how much influence the people Not in front of the camera have in what we see, hear, think, and believe.

    All this Racism behind keyboards and art.. the battle for minds. JayZ can only say these things in the hopes that B&W people in this country finally may have a positive symbiotic relationships through the finance. Friends and living single were two different shows. Black actors shouldnt settle for remakes. White actors shouldnt make action movies past their prime. LOTS OF THAT HAPPENING too. I had to edit this cause I was like... Black friends.. I know its a spoof but its REALLY GOOD. Jay.. did you pay the actors to finish the episode? Can I stream the rest of this.. Im Woke n shh.. I just like theatre 🎥 and those are epic actors.

  • Court Jester

    I thought this was a good way of saying to black people that we have to tell our own stories. You can scream all you want about the lack of diversity in Hollywood but if you have a white person writing a black character it comes off as one note and undimensional, just like every character in this video. Moonlight is a great example of a movie that actually told a story about a truly black experience. Also notice the way the minute the bell rang for a break the vibe changes- amber rose alert, they drop the high pitch voices, vernacular etc., Simply furthers the above mentioned point. To that end, it is a nice touch to fill the video with up and coming creatives who will hopefully be telling our stories in a true light
