Regardailleurs blogs screenshots [1] from an hilarious music video [2] (Fr) called “J'suis blanc” (“I'm White”), the latest from French-Congolese hip hop artist Kamini [3].

A wildly successful amateur video [4] posted on YouTube and Dailymotion last year landed Kamini a record deal and made him famous.
