    ...don’t care how you look, all I care about is can you make me laugh in under 15 minutes, rather you’re a man, woman or rattlesnake! 😆 Because I’m not watching anybody’s whole stand-up, if I don’t laugh in the first 15 minutes of it! (the shorter the act, the shorter the expectation time).

    Everyone's a victim. It couldn't possibly be that you aren't as funny as others. It couldn't possibly be that people don't like to laugh at political, racist, woke humor. It has to be that a group of old white men are sitting in a room deciding to oppress you. Got it.

    Nah. No one is judging these people like these women think they are. They're just making up reasons to presume everyone around them is racist. That's not how it is. You're a funny comedian or you're not. No one cares about their race. These women are just projecting their insecurities.

    2:52 "When men get on stage, the assumption is he's gona be funny until it's proven he's not. When a woman gets on stage, there's an assumption she's not until she proves she is." So true, but... ...Strange now, I used to fall into this, but after years of watching only comedy, for me it's now reversed. I naturally assume men aren't funny because any man can get on stage, but if a woman gets on stage, she must be funny - in some - way because it's so much harder.

    The irony of titling this video referencing judgement of black female comedians and the video then opening with someone heavily judging black female comedians of the exact description embodied by the next comedian they featured in the video Comedy Central standup posted today. So if you go look at Comedy Central standup videos you see a title about the judgement black comedians face and then newest video today is a woman whose physical description was condescendingly reduced by So if you go look at Comedy Central standup videos you see a title about the judgement black comedians face and then newest video today is a woman whose physical description was condescendingly reduced by this video's opening salvo

    Yes its power and strength to cry like a bitch about being a victim. Rather than doing the work and getting credit that you earn. She comedy is just like sports. It's a meritocracy. If you suck you suck. If you're funny people will laugh.

      @Cody Wright put your race card away scooter. I saw the article. I don't need some half wit to jump up and flip the script I have friend's in the industry . So to explain what I said so your simple mind can grasp it... People should be paid on talent . Not race or gender. So drop back and mind your own happiness. And stop trying so hard to be offended by everything.

      Black comedians do not get treated the same way as others, hence the purpose of this video. It should be common knowledge by now, come on man. Daft comments like yours don't help anything. Yeah, comedy is comedy. But there are people in the comedy scene who struggle because of their race.

    There's all types in this world, so their arrows may hit a few targets, but how far can these perceptions go to explain any bigger picture? ... how much of this is a projection of one's own views of others back onto themselves .. a bit of self consciousness. I'm sure we all do it to degrees... The human experience is an odd thing.

      These ladies are speaking, specifically, on comedy. Getting spots is hard for a lot of people. But for women in general, non white women in particular. The club owners will have a "black night, Latino night, Asian night" etc. But on a prime headlining night, the club owner will say "I only need one of you."

      @Bri A. I understand that you say that he doesn’t have the context, and the thought process that because he doesn’t have the context, he will not understand what it is truly like. However, that’s incorrect. Somebody who may not be black, can still understand the black experience. Someone who is not a liberal can understand a liberal perspective. The only kind of people that cannot understand other perspectives are ignorant people. Making the assumption that someone will not understand your experiences as a person is incorrect. We can understand each other as human beings, it’s just that some people refuse to.

      @Bri A. Totally agree. Society as a whole needs to understand all this and stop the BS treatment and inequality. Humans can be horrible and it's far worst for some than others for no good reason at all. Perhaps some day, people will collectively THINK about what they are doing and saying instead of just doing and following.

      Collectively this experience transcends all areas of life as a Black woman. Any profession, social group or situation is tainted by not only self consciousness, but the constant expectations/projections society places on black people, which continually contributes to being "self conscious" in the first place. It is not an unusual or uncommon experience, and it is not simply an issue of self perception or inaccurate/incomplete representation of the black woman's experiences. It is also not the responsibility of a minority group to not "feel bad", take personally, or not acknowledge discrimination. It is the responsibility of our collective societies to not discriminate/perpetuate this in the first place. As a minority group, and specifically a black person, the majority of experiences you live are filtered through the lenses mentioned and having to "prove" yourself worthy/capable in whatever area and country you are operating in before total social/professional acceptance. As a woman, this is amplified and public figures are exposed to even more people and situations. Plus additional challenges such as the mass exposure, totally unfiltered comments/statements from strangers and a general lack of accountability for non-public people. When you unlearn the negative self perspectives as a Black woman, you still encounter and deal with other people's on a regular basis, and must navigate the politics in those situations. (It happened to me multiple times *today* and I live in a highly progressive place.) You are also pressured to do it in a way that aligns with society's expectations for appropriate or "proper" behaviors which are usually sexist/classist/ableist, *and* biased against black people (and BIPOC) for racist systemic reasons in multiple countries. It's a moving target and rising to meet these injustices everyday is exhausting and impossible to take breaks from. Bc being black/a woman, doesn't stop when you go to sleep, turn off your phone or change your surroundings. Neither do the politics. Currently there is always another fight/struggle for basic security and respectful treatment. In this context, respect meaning esteem for you as human being and honest/fair treatment as the bare minimum. There were no misses in this video. Additionally, you are *not* a black woman. Nor are you a internationally recognized public figure. Therefore, respectfully, your opinion on how these black women represent the experiences as such is irrelevant and out of pocket. It is not your place to judge the accuracy based on your own opinions. It's your place to hold accountable/honestly evaluate yourself and other's behaviors and to listen, learn and respect the spectrum of this group. Especially as an outside member of these communities (any really), also to contribute to the dismantling of various oppressive and prejudiced situations and ideology for any reasons they are in play as you're aware and able. Hopefully, this helps develop the overall conversation in a beneficial way for us all!

      Well, I think they are speaking much of the truth and not projecting. The social inequalities that are obviously present among gender, ethnic backgrounds (not "race", as "race" isn't a real thing... it's made up. ALL humans are the same "race", the human "race". The correct term is SPECIES and there is only ONE human species. Science speaks about every other organism on this planet in terms of SPECIES... never "race".), financial classes, etc. are responsible for these differences.
