Comedian Lewis Belt roasts Steph Curry for his skin color: "He don’t know if he want to Harlem Shake or C-Walk"

Steph Curry is African-American but his light skin has been a topic of discussion often. He will go down as one of the best ever because of his hard work and not because of his skin color.
Comedian Lewis Belt roasts Steph Curry for his skin color: He don’t know if he want to Harlem Shake or C-Walk

When the comedian Lewis Belt spotted Steph Curry in the crowd and didn’t let the chance go to waste.

Steph Curry is African-American, but some bashers question his race and ethnicity due to his green eyes and light skin. It even became the subject of a roast in a comedy sketch.

“He don’t know if he want to Harlem Shake or C-Walk”

Questioning Curry’s race is borderline racist because it’s like telling light-skinned people like him are not supposed to be that good in basketball. When Boogie’s Comedy Slam, produced by DeMarcus Cousins, was released in 2020, it caused a stir because stand-up comedians put NBA players in their place. When it was comedian Lewis Belt’s turn, he spotted Steph Curry in the crowd and didn’t let the chance go to waste.

“You a real legend but I ain’t gonna lie. You the first mixed superstar. Cause Curry play like a real Black man, you know, he got swag on the court. But the the white side starts kicking in when the ball gets out of his hands. Curry be so confused when he makes his shot, he don’t know if he want to Harlem Shake or C-Walk!”

Belt was referring to how Curry celebrates after sinking his long bombs and sometimes flails his hands or shakes his shoulder ala Harlem Shake with a bit of C-Walk.

What is Curry’s ethnicity?

Steph Curry’s father, Dell Curry, was born in Harrisonburg, Virginia. On the other hand, Sonya Curry, Steph’s mother, has African American Creole and Haitian ethnic background. What matters now is not a player’s skin color but the perceptions attached to them.

White players or Europeans are perceived to be soft and not as athletic as the African-Americans. Jeremy Lin, a Taiwanese-American, got called out before by Kenyon Martin after Lin sported a cornrow. Jeremy claimed it was cultural appreciation rather than cultural appropriation. Things like this should get talked about in the open more so that more people get to be enlightened on these topics.

In the cancel culture today, only comedians can get away with joking about sensitive topics such as skin color. However, it seems they aren’t spared from retaliation anymore, as Chris Rock found that out in a hard way recently.

Steph Curry will be one of the greatest ever once he hangs up his boots. All of that success is because of his perseverance, hard work, and the fact he changed the game rather than the color of his skin.
