Black Jeopardy with Chadwick Boseman
Saturday Night Live brought back Black Jeopardy (April 7th) and I must say it was surprisingly humorous. SNL is either hit or miss, which is why I rarely watch the show anymore.
In the skit Chadwick Boseman played his iconic Black Panther character (T’Challa) and had a damn good intersection with Kenan Thompson at the end.
Black Jeopardy host, Darnell Hayes (Kenan Thompson) reads, “Your friend Karen brings her potato salad to your cookout.”
“Ah, I understand,” said T’Challa, after asking if Karen was Caucasian and used her own recipe for the dish. “It is noble that she would volunteer to cook for everyone, and although I have never had potato salad, I sense that this white woman does not season her food. And if she does, it is only with a tiny bit of salt, and no paprika. And she will probably add something unnecessary like raisins. So, something tells me that I should say: Aw hell naw, Karen! Keep your bland-ass potato salad to yourself.”
Well played SNL, well played.
