So has he been using a Jamaican accent exclusively since January? wtf, man.

I mean, I'm pretty sure he's a little left side of the IQ bell-curve but could it be an Andy Kaufman-esque long con? 

On second thought he's just potato and privileged.

I was visiting my parents at their retirement village a few years ago, and some guy at the pool offered a beer to his friend by saying in a Jamaican accent "Cerveza, mon?"

You just can't name people "Chet."  They will grow up to be assholes.

sometimes speaking in an accent not your own, is you know, just something fun and playful to do.

If you believe, someone can only ever be making metaphors about the penises they clearly can't stop thinking about...Mr.Freud , that's just you really.

I don't know about all this. I guess I'm willing to accept that you might be able to convince me that a white person mimicking the jamaican accent is wrong if you are white. I'm all ears. But I want to know why - specifically - it's a bad thing.

To me, it's all about the intent and what they feel in their heart. I see this dude doing the patois and I'm thinking the dude loves jamaica and jamaicans. Maybe he's misguided. Maybe it's an inherently racist act. I loathe racism. Black lives matter - the whole nine yards. I'm all in on that. But I'm not feeling any bad racial vibes from young mr hanks. I'm willing to be educated though - I've seen a few jamaicans weigh in that they don't mind and think it's funny. I'm sure there are voices on the negative side, I've just yet to hear them.

I'll give this a shot.

It's about power and oppression.

If you are a member of the oppressor class, whether you like it or not, behavior such as Chet's can't help but come across as patronizing, condescending and cruel, to at least some members of the oppressed class. And they have enough bullshiat in their lives to deal with.

Have you ever heard someone ask "Why are you so annoyed by the idea of political correctness? All people are asking is that you stop being a dick."

This falls squarely into that territory.

If ol' Chet really felt an affinity for Jamaican people and their culture, he simply would not need to have this explained to him.

Well, it is the same with white people yakking at people in poorly pronounced or spoken Spanish and it is usually out of context.

Fair enough. It's not a thing I  want to be on the wrong side of. I don't like to try to tell people they aren't feeling how they say they are feeling because that's lame. At the same time I'll just say it's too bad for the dude. I only know him from this - he could be a hero or a jackass for all I know, no idea. But he is clearly enamored with Jamaica/jamaicans.

According to Global News, Hanks said, "If you don't have a problem with a Black person wearing cowboy hats and cowboys boots and loving country music, then why do you have a problem with white people wearing braids and gold teeth and getting into hip-hop music? It's this whole idea of theft, of they steal it from us."

I think the difference is that those other people have actually appropriated the look, and made it a part of them. Hanks is faking. So yes, it's condescending. Mimicking somebody is hardly ever a compliment.

You do know that Spain is in Europe, right? The idea that Spanish is something alien to "White people" is kinda racist. BTW, the word for "bruh" in Spain is  tío, and the slang differs from country to country.

They were showing something on St. Lucia and the guy who was the local guide was white yet grew up there so he just spoke like that. I know, not the same...
