WHERE ARE MY PIES? RIBBLES, WHERE ARE THE PIES
I PUT ON MY WINDOWSILL? – WHY, I DON’T KNOW,
MRS. CARUTHERS. WHY WOULD ANYONE
WANT TO STEAL ONE OF YOUR DELICIOUS
BLUEBERRY PIES? – [snaps]
HEY. SEE TO IT YOU SHINE
THOSE SHOES UP NICE, BOY. – YES, SIR,
YOU BEST BE BELIEVING I WILL! I’LL SHINE YOUR SHOES BLACKER
THAN MY MAMA’S BOOTY. [all gasp] [laughs] [yelling] OOGA-BOOGA! OOGA-BOOGA SHOO!
OOGA-BOOGA SHOO! OOGA-BOOGA!
– OH, HELL NO! – OOGA-BOOGA SHOO!
[yelling] – IN 1964,
MY FATHER MARCHED WITH MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.
AND HARRY BELAFONTE ALONG WITH OTHER RENOWNED
CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS.

  1. Just a thought but no actors in history have the diversity of Key & Peele. Funny & real. Depth, quality & performance. No agenda. Just saying, take a bow K&P.

  2. that's how it was back in the day, the only work a black actor could get. good ole racist america, alive and well in 2019. racist prez telling black people to "go back where they came from". problem is most black people don't know where that is, you know, 200 years of slavery… a double racist insult. did you know slave owners in washington d.c. got reparations after the civil war? yep, $300 for every slave lost to emancipation… what did the slaves get? well they got 100 more years of lynchings and jim crow segregation… but it's all even now ain't it republicans?

  3. and today those three roles would be
    a hood dude in a Takashi69 video
    the big slow black guy who loves white women
    and an extreme far-right republican or far-left democrat

    don't show that ish at anyone funeral, not the proudest moment

  4. The great thing about these two men is they are honest, pithy, and on the money.
    No topic was taboo to them and I miss them greatly.

    And yes, sometimes our past is best left in the past.

  5. I would've tried to stop him from doing it, I'd stand up and say "you know, because of the time what we could see might be shocking and offensive, do you think it's really a good idea to risk it..now..in a church?"

  6. I am really sorry for asking this, but why is this funny…??? Pardon me if this question is offensive

  7. Okay hear me out…. at least back then he was a real black actor instead of a dude in blackface….because I feel like that would’ve been worse

  8. Always review a work before showing it to a crowd. My teacher blindly played the 2007 Beowulf movie because we where covering the story in english class. The movie had tons of blood and dismemberment with a few nude Angelina Jolie scenes.

  9. It’s deeper than what yøu think he had tø feed his family when u are yøung u dø stupid things før møney but with age cømes wisdøm it døesn’t matter høw yøu started the race but høw yøu finish it . It’s always a message in Key and peele cømedy .

  10. Man.. Peele is a masterful actor.. The bafoonish facial expressions and laugh is beyond just practice, That's a great actor.

  11. be mad at 1900s hollywood. as far as im aware, he was a bloody good actor just unfortunate the time and place his soul met the world with.

  12. It's also crazy if you observe closely the part with the shoe shine he looked like he himself wasn't even proud of doing this actor for movies

  13. This honestly didn't seem so bad. I mean he was just an actor. You think they be proud…. Now if it was porn on the other hand….

  14. S T O P. RA P E I N G. B a B I E S
    Ill tell ripple you said sweet ,heck yeah// this is gonna be crazy ,…i bet its porn

  15. People always love to take but never bother to give, I'm talk about key & Peele video. All of their video got so many view but people never bother to subscribe, they laughing with joy watching key & Peele video but they so lazy for give some appreciations by subscribe the channel.

  16. Yeah… I never did like the acting roles back then….the things people did back then just to make a dollar are shameful….some still are..😢

  17. I love it, because it reflects the reality of how people are willing to sell their souls for a modicum of success and once they get it they try to rewrite history to reflect their ego's perceived character and reputation. The propaganda NEVER matches the reality.
