    Naela (نائلة) is an Arabic name, not an African one. But half of Africa are Muslims, maybe more, and they use a lot of Arabic vocabulary.

    "My people" sounds like the 'fifties time that you are talking about that happened when there were only black and white pictures of people nearly seventy years ago... Like, there was this thing that happened after that with color pictures and another zero added to the date... Are you talking about the Jews? "My people"? Obviously, these are not from the tribe of Judah, right?

    Where's the funny?? When's comedy?? Surely, the 'hysterical laughter' had to be part of the new 'inclusive'/'representation' movement-thingy because it was NOT worthy of even a chuckle. This was just another, run-of-the-mill, 'white community vs severely dysfunctional black community' trope (minus actual jokes. I go into every comedy clip smiling and ready to laugh but some of these performances are just so drab & uninspired mess, that my smile dies a horrible death and it's such a letdown. 🥺 I'm a black man myself, but there's nothing either 'funny' nor 'cute' about openly hostile or highly dysfunctional people, so don't go full dumb@$$. Never go full dumb@$$. Maybe they're laughing AT the dysfunction rather than WITH it. I can only hope. 🤨
