comedy from the 80's takes place in southern USA and the main characters are young adults

The only part I remember is one of the characters tries to get a job assisting an older man. While he is being interviewed he tells the mans assistant that he is working on his masters,  you assume he means he is agrad student but that man misunderstands and asks your masters what? So this is a running gag due to the fact he is black . The man trys to instruct him on how to serve him and tells him to move slower and eventually he movers so slow the old man chokes and he looses the job

The movie seems to be setup with interconnected story's

I hope you can help me figure it out it was a very funny movie
