"Sh*t Black Girls Say" Is A Youtube Hit, But Some African America Women's Groups Upset [what do you think?]

The youtube video "Sh*t Black Girls Say" has gone viral with over 1.2 million views since being posted on December 16. The clip is a spoof of another popular series of videos "Sh*t Girls Say," but not everyone is laughing.

The Elijah "EK" Griffin directed video features actor Billy Sorrels dressed in drag, playing the role of "Peaches," a black woman who pats her itchy weave and constantly complains.

“We were just trying to amuse ourselves. We didn’t expect it to be viral,” Sorrells told the New York Daily News. “People need to laugh. When we laugh, we see each other better.”

Despite what looks to be an overwhelmingly positive response from most of the video's viewers, two African American women's advocacy groups are not amused.

“While those images are funny to those of us who are well- educated, some young people don’t know how to filter the message,” said Benita Miller, founder of The Brooklyn Young Mothers’ Collective. “Young people don’t know what is real or what is imagined,” Miller said. “When you work with young women they take on these characteristics.”

“You put something on YouTube, the whole world is watching,” added Farah Tanis, executive director of Black Women's Blueprint. “I don’t think it is a man’s place to offer this type of representation of black women.”

Griffin says people need to learn how to laugh and get over themselves.

“To all those people offended out there - it is a simple joke,” said Griffin. “It’s made for people who are easy going.”

What do you think of the video?
