Tough questions

Posted 28 August 2004

Situation: I'm in the dining hall with some other girl at a nearby table, with Jeopardy on TV. Bessie (who works in the dining hall) enters the scene.

Bessie : Man, now how come you never see a brotha on Jeopardy?
Girl : I've seen a black guy on Jeopardy.
Bessie : Now I ain't talkin' 'bout no buppies. Do you know what a buppie is?
Girl : No.
Bessie : It's a black business person. I'm talkin' 'bout a brotha on Jeopardy, a'ight. They think we can't answer any questions? "Kentucky Fried Chicken." ... "Uh, I'll take fried?"
