-(SCHOOL BELL RINGS) BOTH: I am smart. I am tough.
I will always be enough. Oh! I am smart. I am tough.
I will always be enough. Oh! Ha! All right, here we go! I am smart. I–
McKayla, what’s wrong? Nothing, Miss Miller. But this is your favorite time
of the day. Handshake time. Huh. Okay, girls. What’s going on? Handshake time
is not our favorite time. We don’t like
doing the handshakes. Well, we don’t have to do
the handshakes if you don’t like them. Why didn’t somebody
just tell me? Because you like them so much. You’re so sad. (STUTTERS) Um… Mm, where did you get that idea? From you being sad. When you returned our quizzes,
they were all wrinkly. You cried on them. Well, it rained last week. You know, maybe they just got
a little wet. It didn’t rain.
I remember last week. Just because I’m ten, doesn’t mean I don’t remember
last week. Well, it rained
in my neighborhood. (CHUCKLES) So, come on, guys,
let’s do some math. Oh, what page,
Ms. Miller-Hicks? Oops. You used to write
Ms. Miller-Hicks on the board, but then, one day,
you just wrote Ms. Miller. Sometimes, grown ups, they grow
in different directions, -and–
-What’s that burn
on your forehead? What’s with all the questions,
Daisy? You’re doing your own hair. You can’t afford the salon
anymore. Okay, that is enough! Everybody, your heads down. Heads down. -Ms. Miller?
-What, McKayla? You’re not shiny anymore. What– What do you mean? You don’t put the gold stuff
on top of your cheeks anymore. We liked it. Aww… I’m… sorry. I don’t wear highlighter
anymore. What is in my life to highlight? Oh my gosh, yeah, Mr. Hicks, he cheated on me
with an Applebee’s waitress. Yeah, and after weeks
of coming home smelling like riblets
and that Apple bitch, he left me! (LAUGHS) And now, I can’t eat
“good in the neighborhood.” (VOICE CRACKING) But I really
appreciate that you guys care. I really do! And I’m sorry. I haven’t been
a better teacher. But you’re right, I’m… (CRYING) I’m sad–
I’m really, really sad. I am smart. I am tough. I will… -…always be enough.
Always… be… enough.♪ I’m so tired of crying

  1. Maybe this time the comedy wasn't the point. Maybe it's just to highlight a teacher's struggle we can relate to. Cuz no matter what a teacher goes through they have to put on a brave face and teach that classroom of children.

  2. Comin home smelling like riblets and that apple bytch—-πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ dammit man!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  3. The level of inferencing taking place in this segment is superb. The level of Black Girl Magic is phenomenal πŸ’«πŸ’₯
    -A Happy Black ELA Teacher

  4. Read so many comments about people crying. I was in stitches, this ad was funny, and I roared when I noticed it was for lottery bwahahaha

  5. Sorry, I can't discern if A Black Lady Sketch Show is intended to be a comedy or what. I am supporting it but, it's simply not funny to me. It always finds a way to disappoint. The actors are talented but the plots often suck.

  6. spoiler alert, it was a lottery commercial!!!!! they just keep getting me man, I hope this show never gets canceled

  7. Okay but am I the only one you actually liked the song and went to go search for it but then you realized it's an ad so they just made this song for the commercial πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­ " I'm so tired of crying these endless tears"πŸ’€

  8. What In the WORLD… He cheated so she can’t eat good in the Neighborhood πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

  9. Shows like this are destroying black people within America. Never truly showing them where they came from and where they are going. It’s truly sad. Little boys and girls idolizing people who give them terrible advice to become homosexual or strippers. Sick sad world

  10. How her voice quivered at the beginning when she said, β€œhand shake timeβ€πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

  11. "He came home smelling like riblets from the Applebee's Bitch"
    He must be a loser. That young woman is so pretty….

  12. Her standing in the chair reminded me of "O Captain my Captain" in Dead Poet's Society.
    Lmfao Black Lady Sketch Show is revolutionary

  13. I went through with it the first time, but now I cannot bring myself to go last 2:35, woooooooaaaaaahhhhh onions seem to get cut at that exact point
