    She is not doing anything any other comedian wouldn't have done or have not done in their own way.

    I think the tweets were way worse then the skit. LOL

    My POV: Some truth,some funy,some sambo. Like most Black comedy I see these days so who cares?
    Black comedians may hide behind their "jobs" all they want. But when it comes down to it they are basically telling jokes in the guide lines of racism and use a certain formula to gain popularity and checks.
    Yes comedians are free to say what they want,and non - comedians are free to criticize who they want. SNL has never been on the cutting edge when it comes to Black comics,they seem to always choose a certain type. Compare SNL to In Living Color, totally different,and ILC was way funnier!

    Though a bit ghetto, I don't see what the big deal is. There was a little something for everyone

    Its cooning, I can see the humor but it was still cooning. If you did it with a black audience it would have been safer but on SNL it was cooning in front of white folks.
