'Your Sloppy Scrounging for Views-Ass Remix Is Terrible'

Jay-Smooth takes on the autotuning of Charles Ramsey and does what only he can do. Aisha Harris brings the science and notes the obvious trend of the "hilarious black neighbor."

I get why the initial interview was funny. I don't get why seeing snippets of it over and over and over is funny. Part of this is that very few white people know someone like Charles Ramsey and know him within the context of other black people who exhibit the range of humanity. If you see some of us bougie folks are cringing, that's why.
