By now, we’ve given you enough reminders that if you miss episodes of Black Folk Don’t, you’re missing out on witty, wonderful explorations and analysis of cultural stereotypes that are rejected and endorsed by black folk around the country. But still, you may not regularly be getting your dose of Black Folk Don’t from the series site. If you aren’t, we admit we’re remiss in skipping a few weeks bringing it to you here.
In Episode 2 of Season 2, Black Folk Don’t Camp, the video’s only rolling for but a minute and 20 seconds before you get to a hilarious anecdote about from a black New Orleanean about tiptoeing through the woods on a camping trip with her white, British boyfriend. They have pretty different reactions when they see a wild creature out there. I won’t ruin her telling of it, but it begins with the classic line, “I ’bout lost my whole mind. I mean, it was a black moment.”
