I have so far not seen anyone who is black or Hispanic bothered by her race/ethnicity and/or the way she talks. Why is it in this country if you're not white you can never just be? It's like you're always the subject of scrutiny.

You're not looking hard enough, I saw a lot of black and Hispanic people make fun of her for that. Maybe you live in a Huffington Post bubble

So what?!?! I laughed at her Southern accent fail too. Do you know how many people try to put on accents in the U.S. and fail at it? Why is she any different?!

You made it seem like only white people make fun of her. That's far from true.

It’s not different. But she’s a person who chose a path in life that puts her in the spotlight. Deal with it.

I didnít know she was attempting to sound ďBlackĒ as some commenters stated because one just canít sound Black IMO - unless people are using the language/vernacular of those in poor/urban to unfortunately generalize the whole race. Iím Hispanic, 95% of Black people I know including family, donít speak like that.

I am bothered because she normally doesnít speak like that (even though there are Hispanics in BX that do) and decided to while addressing a predominately African-American crowd.

Plenty of black people on Twitter making fun of the way she tried her fake black/fake Southern accent to talk to a black crowd.

That's incorrect. I may have made it seem as if it's mostly white people who are calling her racist for the way she was speaking and for her "talking black." I also wouldn't think it's white Southerners who are saying she is "talking black" because her accent was just a plain Southern accent. It's similar to accents someone like Hillary or Barack or many politicians who visit down South make.

I am dealing with it. I'm laughing because everyone is making a big deal about that clip. It was funny af and people need to move on. It wasn't racist. It was just an accent fail.
