  1. Only 1.4% of Americans owned slaves. The biggest slave owners in Tennessee and Georgia were black and they were the biggest donors to the confederacy. Southerners hated slavery, slavery delayed industrialization, raied taxes only passed for the 1% that owned slaves and for citizens to apprehend escaped slaves. They just didnt want a giant bureaucratic government taking over. Getting their doors kicked in and guns pointed in their faces didn't help either.

  2. Someone has to play the bad guy, also the bad guys always have a better sense of style for some reason?

  3. Didnt like the end, so whites are stupid racist mfs but black are good at carrying a gun and steal. Lets perpetuate roles here! 🤔

  4. You almost killed the whole skit with the robbery at the end. But I get it. In order to get this off you had to meet a stereotype standard. I understand Hollywood. Great skit. But if they just walked off after the n word. And you asked each other is that all we need. The skit would have been at 100%. The robbery part took it to 60%

  5. My history teacher showed this in class when we talked about the civil war in regurds to how the South functioned during 1800s. I've loved K&P ever since!

  6. WE JUST HERE TO SLAVE ON ABOUT ANY OLD WHICH WAY YOU WANT US TO! THESE GUYS CAN EVEN MAKE SLAVERY FUNNY. THEY ARE TRULY THE CURE FOR HUMANITY.

  7. Hadn't seen this one before. Thought I saw where this was going, but it went in a different direction. Still, barely managed to not spit my coffee out all over my monitor. Rest of my desk, not so lucky.

  8. The war was NOT about slavery – secession was. Secession and the Civil War are two seperate issues. Shortly after Abrham Lincoln was elected, South Carolina seceeded and became the first state in the Confederacy on December 20th, 1860 while the last state to seceed pre-war was Louisiana on Janurary 26th of the following year. Three months later, Lincoln refused to hand over Fort Sumter, which was in Confederate territory. This refusal to withdraw U.S. Troops from a military installation was a clear message from the president that he still considered the fort and the territory it was in as United States ground. The Confederate government viewed this sustained military presence by a "foreign" power (they now saw the U.S as being a seperate country) as an act of military agression by the United States and thus a direct attack on what they believed was a constitutional entitlement to leave the union. In short, the state's belief in their right to secede propelled the first shot at Fort Sumter, thus starting the war on April 12th, 1861. Hence, the Civil War was about states rights. The only thing confederate soldiers were guilty of is having a deep rooted devotion to their states. I know it's difficult for some to understand today, but back then one's own state was more important than the country as a whole. Today most people think of themselves as just Americans, but back then people called themselves Virginians, South/North Carolinians, Marylanders, Pennsylvanians, etc. This is best exemplified when you consider how both armies were structured in the Civil War, regiments and brigades were often composed of soldiers from the same state like the 20th Maine and 1st Virginia. I'ts this pride in one's home which brought these soldiers to fight underneath the Confederate flag and It's absolutely disgraceful that politicians are dragging the names of these heroic men through the mud for the sake of reenforcing their own petty political narratives. The only "lost cause" in existence is trying to talk sense to these brainwashed finatics who have no understanding or respect for American history or even history as a whole! If this band of left-wing cultists think they're actually making a difference in this little fight of theirs to revise history and dement the minds of the American people, then they're even dumber than we knew! These extremists should search "confederate statues poll" on Google! Every single study has concluded that the majority of Americans are not buying their particular brand of trash! Even the leftists at CNN didn't try to hide what their polls found: 57 percent of Americans think the confederate flag is a symbol of southern heritage, only 33 percent think of it as racist! These far left wingers are NOT in the majority, no matter how hard they try to convince themselves and others to the contrary! Despite their best efforts, those men of the south that these statues commemorate will echo throughout time as great tacticians, devoted patriots and fearless leaders long after memory of the left wing figureheads and their false narratives has faded into non-existence. Those who served in the Civil War, on both sides, are great figures of American culture while these social "justice" warriors and politically "correct" (pfft! yeah, right!) extremists are not even foot notes!

  9. I love civil war history. It was a super strategic war fought by both sides. Super smart people. I actually just got back from doing tours at Gettysburg. It was amazing. I cant wait to go back, because I live fairly close. So much to learn about it.

  10. Kinda funny, the democrats were the party of the KKK, and now today they are still the most racist, but the media will twist it otherwise.

  11. I love Key & Peele but this is the first one that seems really lazy. Unless they're trying to imply that southern racism gives license to rampant black crime? Then this really doesn't make a whole lot of sense. All the other stuff is so much more thought out especially the ones with a racial angle

  12. I just have never found any character that the short guy plays funny. He must have already been recognized as a great writer because I have never saw one single skit that I thought he came across as funny or even just having the timing of a good comedy actor. When he does the gay skits he seems to get into character better but it's still never funny

  13. Not sure if this is stereotyping white reenactors for living in the past or "African Americans" for robbing the white folks.

  14. I would laugh, but this may as well be a reenactment of what Liberals do every day. They base things on past events to bully people into getting what they want. Selfish and disgusting.

  15. OK but can we at least acknowledge the fact that, Key and Peele by pulling out guns and robbing people are feeding the stereotype of black people robbing white people? Funny ass sketch, but yeah,, hehe black people robbing white people is not something that is helping the whole "black = criminal" stereotype.

  16. The amount of propaganda these idiots perpetuate through their "comedy" is off the charts. Much of their material falls directly into thee ypical, leftist/marxist, anti-white propaganda.

  17. The Civil War was when the republicans from the north fought the democrats from the south , to free the slaves from the democrats right?

  18. Its time for hsitory reality check. Even when some black slaves where given freedom some did buy slaves on their own. ANd not just to buy their family members one woman actually sold her husband to plantation work because he was harsh on her. So while white woman was gfighting for right to vote in the north blackwoman was alowwed ot own slaves in the south.
