As I have grown older (and grayer), I have come to have more of an appreciation for the sketch comedy of Saturday Night Live. I won’t go so far to say that SNL is must-see television, but it’s kind of like watching an NFL game…you might get a dud, but you might get a nail-biter as well.
SNL opened up their show with a sketch that addressed everyone’s new favorite player, Mr. Jeremy Shu-How Lin of the New York Knickerbockers. From the use of “Lin” in every single word in Webster’s, to the slips of our favorite media networks (un)intentionally using Asian slurs and stereotypes, and the current state of racial sensitivity and its double standard between Blacks and Asians.
