Chadwick Boseman hosed SNL this week and it was expected that he’d play his Black Panther character somehow.
And Black Jeopardy was the vehicle.
The recurring sketch has had white guest hosts confused by questions alongside black contestants who get it.
Reprising T’Challa, the Wakandan head of state, Boseman got it all wrong.
The question to,
“This is the reason your cable bill is in your grandmama’s name.”
“What is, to honor her as the foundation of the family?”
Black Jeopardy host Keenan Thompson says,
“Hmm, that’s really nice. It’s wrong, but it’s really nice.”
After some more wrong answers finally, T’Challa starts to get it. To the prompt,
“Your friend Karen wants to bring her potato salad to your cookout.“
“This woman, Karen, she is Caucasian, eh? She has her own recipe for potato salad?….I sense that this white woman does not season her food. And if she does, it is only with a tiny bit of salt, and no paprika. And she will probably add something unnecessary, like raisins.”
T’Challa yells for Karen to keep that bland potato salad to herself.
