“Every time you say ‘vinegar,’ you say the n-word”

The word “vinegar” is sometimes said to have the “n-word” in it, so white people can’t properly say it.

I don’t use the N-word. I don’t even feel comfortable saying “vinegar.” And if I ever have to use that word I say “vinega.”

Everybody that has said “vinegar” has also said the n-word.

In one of bo burnhams specials, there’s a part where has the audience finish some phrases, and one of them is salt and vinegar. When they finish he turns all the lights on and asks, “Alright who said it?”

white people aren’t allowed to say vinegar.
every time you do, you’re saying the n-word and that is not okay.

We need to talk about salt and vinegar
Bo burnham is my favorite comedian. I think no one is thinking about performance, especially online performance, like him and he’s one of the smartest, most dedicated artists in the space. I truly don’t think anyone else is adequately representing what it’s like to grow up online like him.
 
But, I’ve been wrestling with how to feel good about this despite some of his borderline offensive material. Especially considering stories like the “yin-yang” one that has circulated on tiktok.
 
Now I’m thinking back to the salt and vinegar joke, as it’s his most recent example of racial humor. While a previous thread on here suggests that it’s not offensive because “he didn’t say it” and “he’s making fun of white people, so it’s ok,” the reality is that he purposely had part of a (mostly) white audience shout the n word. I can’t imagine how uncomfortable a Black person in the audience would be after hearing that, regardless of the point of the joke. Reminds me of tv blackface scenes where the joke is supposedly on the ignorant white person, but it’s still minstrelsy regardless.
