Quick English Conversation: Meeting a Black English Teacher

{“en”:”Hi, everyone. My name is Brandon And in this video, we’re gonna help improve your English speaking ability. This video is going to be about my experiences with my students and their interactions with me as their black teacher. I hope you learn a lot. Please stick around. A lot of times when my students first meet me, this is the first time they are meeting or interacting with a person of my skin color. And the only interactions they’ve had prior to this is from music and the media. Movies, rap music – whatever. So when they try and greet me for the first time, they try to recreate the scenes from those movies. Such as doing a crazy handshake. And I don’t know what… I don’t know what they’re doing okay they’re…

They’re hipping and they’re hopping. Another thing they try to do is talk a lot of slang with me. “Hey, Dawg. What’s up? What’s up bruh? Where you from, man?” No. That’s not how you you start a conversation. And the third, and the worst thing they sometimes do, is they use bad words. I’m not gonna say these bad words, but just know never start a conversation using bad words. It’s very rude and crude. The proper way to do it is… if you’re meaning anybody, a black guy or whatever, treat them as any other person. You put your hand out. You say, “Hi, nice to meet you. My name is … What’s your name?” That’s it. In conclusion you guys. I’m just like any other person . I’m just like any other teacher. You do not as you treat me any other way just because the color of my skin. If you liked this video, please sub and subscribe. And thank you for watching.. “}
