Racism for Revenue? Late-Night's Incendiary 'Comedy'

SNL mocked "White House Negroes" for daring to have their own opinions about politics.

C-minus Comedians at “Saturday Night Live” took it upon themselves to lob jokes at black conservatives who attended a White House Black History gathering. Trump supporters came together in faith and fellowship around the leader of the free world, but SNL cast member Chris Redd labeled us as “White House Negroes” as white audience members roared in laughter.

What does it say about the state of our society that we are comfortable enough to openly ridicule black people for exercising the very freedoms we fought for? What does it mean to fight for emancipation and the right to vote when our vote is restricted to a particular party?

Pastor Marc Little lashed out at SNL for the tone-deaf commentary about black conservatives attending the event. In his words, a few leftist comedians “don’t get to determine who is black.”

But I guess racist commentary under the guise of humor is perfectly okay when a black comedian hurls incendiary comments to entertain a white audience. SNL, you sly dog, you.

Sadly, this is nothing new. Americans remember a time when black people were restricted from voting, threatened to support a particular candidate, and even ridiculed and assaulted for exercising their fundamental rights as citizens of this great nation.

Fun fact — I was there in what would have been my second visit to the White House, among conservatives of all colors and backgrounds in a united effort to pray for our president. But it wasn’t to pray for the “ghost of blackface past,” as Redd entertains. (Yes, he really did say this.)

Instead, what I prayed for was this:

I prayed for an America that is truly tolerant of a diversity not of skin color but of ideas.

I asked God to grant President Donald Trump greater insight on the needs of the most vulnerable, but to also prioritize Liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans.

I acknowledged the presence of our Lord and Savior, that he would strengthen our efforts to affirm life and rebuke evil and lawlessness.

So we’ll continue to pray for our president and our country as it stands today, or else we’ll be praying to return to a free society tomorrow. Meanwhile, the cast and producers of SNL should start praying for better ratings should racism be their source of showtime revenue.
