    I wonder if anyone from SNL is allowed to form their own opinions.

    well, you can't go to war if you've already surrendered, now can you?

    Meanwhile, the funny part is how SNL had a skit about Hurricane Katrina featuring a blackface impersonation of Aaron Neville in 2005. Don't get me started on how many times they've done Oriental Face impersonations due to the fact that they have never had an Asian cast member.

    You’d rather go to war than have President Trump? This shows the true sense of the Democratic Party

    SNL hasn’t been funny in years. People are tuning in just to have a I HATE TRUMP pep rally. Even this sucked.

    In today's culture and social climate, why would Neeson even admit something like that to some random reporter? Admit sure but not to some random reporter? It doesn't look good. At least he said he regrets those thoughts and feelings. That reporter probably also got spooked.

    Guys, you aren't the whole world. Blackface means nothing in Europe or anywhere else in the world except US. It's not racist here or anything. Your history is yours only, you deal with it. Don't force your problems on us.

    Oh please Liam is lying and is a hypocrite piece is why because just a short time beforehand he was complaining about women getting in the way of males abusing and raping and harassing females which is what they mean when he like woody allen and don trump said “let’s not turn this into a witch-hunt!”

    the Neo Satanic Liberals should now do a Jussie Smollet sketches showing how he crafted his fake self attack all to further his ''noble'' and not at all ''self aggrandising'' fraud with loud mouth Feminazi L.Jones using whiteface paint chasing Che around throwing bleach at him and trying to hog tie him. socialist propaganda mogul Lorne michaels would roll on the floor laughing.

    Did Michael Che really just make a joke about the 19th century? 🙄 That's white people shit, the notion that racism ended centuries ago. The heart of the South. Rich white people. Who grew up in freshly desegregated areas. 1980s. That last anti-discrimination law was in the 70s. Y'all really surprised? Y'all demand resignation? Why you acting like you didn't grow up here? I grew up in Colonial Williamsburg. Plantation field trips were normal. We are still explaining that blackface is wrong in 2019 and y'all shocked about 30 YEARS AGO? Rich white Southern kids 30 years ago. My grandparents live down the street from people with a Blue Lives Matter Sign in their yard. YOU WANT SOME PEOPLE TO RESIGN OVER WHAT WAS LITERALLY WHITE CULTURE IN THE SOUTH 30 YEARS AGO? Won't nobody woke, didn't nobody know better. Meanwhile our PRESIDENT is PRESENTLY defending and being endorsed by white supremacists yet still in office. 😂 Am I the only black person who thinks calling for resignation over this is dumb af? Y'all act like you ain't never met a privileged white person or been to the South. In the public eye, these white people had black friends then went home and dropped the n-word. That's how white people are.
    And don't come in here going "not all white people" because obviously. Obviously not all white people. But just like every demographic, there's a culture. There was culture surrounding race for white people. There was a culture for weathly people. And a culture for Southerners. So you bet your ass there's a culture for wealthy white Southerners.

    Liam Neeson is not from the UK, but Ireland. But, of course, it's ok to stereotype Irish people, despite the vast historical documentation of discrimination (Irish Need Not Apply signs in every business window in Manhattan), because they're white. Anti-white racism is the new liberal privilege.

    You guys should’ve brought to attention how this tax ssn will continue to kill the middle class. These stories are horrifying.

    Blackface in a school years definitely illustrates people's acceptance at the time of publication. Everything is NOW RACIST. People constantly throw that term around to the point it is often without merit. It is just often a put-down when nothing was meant by an action or statement. Perhaps people should not be do hasty to judge. That makes them 'judgemental'. Ha!

    2:45 the actual style of the clothing is the worst part...who the fuck pays thousands for something that damn ugly? also nobody would say ANYTHING about the Gucci sweater mouth thing if it was black/blue. white/pink, or literally any other color combination. It's just unfortunately coincidence people are automatically assuming a red rhombus on a black sweater makes them think of blackface....so arent they being racist too??

    Name one person who is not the least bit racist at all, other than yourself and please make it someone who is alive, not someone in a book, someone you actually know, I will check back in a year for the one comment.

    For SNL, this seems a mild response to the blackface antics of the VA governor and AG. And, what about the sexual abuse accusations leveled at the Lt Gov? You treat that like a rumor to be ignored. Are SNL writers and producers hypocrites? Come on SNL, where’s your sense of outrage?

    No Democrat resignations, at least, not right now. We need to keep our Dems in office. They are publically exposed and will probably never hold another public office. At least they are not Republicans!

    The satire is so fucking off. Shouldn't be making jokes about Bezos and his dick pics alone; you should be making jokes about AMI and fricking PECKER and not just shallow 'haha penis' jokes on the surface, but the whole rot and criminal bullshit corruption underneath. That's the story. That's the satire.
