"Black people can 'woohoo,' black people often do 'woohoo,' but it's not instinctively a black sound of happiness, and I think it's because black people aren't comfortable with the 'woohoo.'

There's just a moment when, and maybe this is my own personal experience, but I feel it sounds eerily similar to a police siren." - Trevor Noah on Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation
