    Re: The White Audience Is the Worst Part of the Leslie Jones' 'SNL' Slavery Skit

    I thought it was great satire bouncing off of Bundy's comments that blacks should wish they were still slaves, so here she is agreeing with him in SATIRE, which is what SNL is known for. It seems so odd to me that anyone is taking this as anything but tongue in cheek satire about how great the slave days were.

    Crab cakes.

    Funny isn't necessarily what I'd call it. I smiled, but it was hardly an LOL moment. I also wouldn't call it offensive. It was very "meh."

    She should be thankful. Every black actor ever on SNL went on to bigger and better things. Meanwhile, white people have Chris Kattan.

    Advantage: blacks.

    Yeah I agree. Wasn't really that funny but I did smile a couple times- especially the super babies - Kobe, Lebron, KimboSlice ....
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    It's funny, in a sardonic way. This is actually intellectual comedy which makes it very dangerous.

    Is this really causing a backlash? I laughed. It was funny.

    I don't think you can call this racist. I highly doubt she was advocating slavery or giving it her seal of approval or whatever, it's meant to be a joke.

    Referencing race does not equal racism.

    Funny, but not LOL funny

    But the stuff about how she'd be hooked up with the finest black man and make super-babies was clever
