“I’m Black and I’m British. Basically, I’m what the Royal Family thought the baby would look like,” he said.
“People ask me what’s worse, British racism or American racism,” Kaluuya continued.
“Let me put it this way, British racism is so bad white people left.
“They wanted to be free. Free to create their own kind of racism,” he quipped.

The Black Panther star then joked that “was why they created Australia, South Africa, and Boston.”
The Get Out actor went on to discuss his Ugandan family and his mother who is one of 22 children.
“My dad is one of 49,” he added.
“My family’s sperm is literally about that life. They say black don’t crack but condoms do.”
Later, Kaluuya joked about his Golden Globes acceptance speech in which he was accidentally muted.
“I was muted! Can you believe that? I said the best joke of my life and I was muted. I felt like I was in the Sunken Place,” he said, referencing the plot to his hit Get Out.
Fans praised Kaluuya for not playing it safe during his first appearance on the hit show.
