SNL Skit Tackles Black History Month
Sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live kicked off February and Black History Month with a rather questionable skit on Saturday.
Three of the show’s Black cast members – Jay Pharoah, Kenan Thompson, and newcomer Sasheer Zamata – rapped to a song titled “28 Reasons to Hug A Black Guy.”
In the video, the threesome plays students who are asked to give a special presentation to the rest of the class about Black History Month. What follows next is a whole bunch of craziness that left Black Twitter none too happy with what they witnessed.
Spoiler alert: most of the reasons had to do with slavery.
