Dr. Boyce: Kenan’s comments about Black women give us excuse NOT to watch SNL

Kenan Thompson I’ve been a fan of Saturday Night Live since I was a child. I enjoyed watching the likes of Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock and many of the other amazing comedians who’ve come through the show over the years. Also, non-Black comedians, like Amy Poehler, Seth Meyers, Chevy Chase and others have set the standard in their genre. In fact, I haven’t even touched the surface when it comes to the long list of talented people who got their start on SNL.
