Have you ever been in a conversation with a white friend or colleague who thought they know more about “the Black experience” than you? That’s what happens to Franchesca Ramsey in MTV Decoded’s hilarious video, White People Whitesplain Whitesplaining.
In the clip, Ramsey’s chatting with a friend who brought up a time when a “totally random girl” tried to touch Ramey’s hair. When the comedian tries to explain how the experience made her feel, her friend chimes in and won’t let her speak.
Things only get worse when well-meaning white folks start popping out of the woodwork to explain Ramsey’s experience for her.
Although satirical, the video perfectly illustrates how many people of color feel when they’re trying to share their personal experiences, only to have them drowned out by the “well, actually,” caucus.
