Key And Peele Take Down Racism In The Most Hilarious (And Musical) Way

The comedy duo shed light on police brutality, too.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have been tackling race issues with comedy for years and they've done it again with their latest sketch "Negrotown."

While there is some humor in the musical clip, the "Key & Peele" sketch is also filled with compelling, thought-provoking commentary about the harsh reality of strained race relations in America.

"In Negrotown, you can walk the street / without getting stopped or harassed or beat," the sketch song says. "And there's always a cab when you need to get around / and they always stop in Negrotown."

As you can see, "Negrotown" speaks to some serious issues. Recently, race issues were highlighted in the police custody death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland.

When the sketch dropped, Key called it "a new installment of 'these are sometimes dreams I have.'" Meanwhile, Peele simply said the duo "had to release this [sketch] early."
