People get awkward when they're interacting with people of a different color. Specifically, white people get awkward. That's what racism insurance is for!

It's just that this guy is particularly articulate, and—no, I didn't mean articulate, I meant—um, clean cut? Ugh, forget it! Just watch the video.
