Black Panther brings a touch of Wakanda to ‘Black Jeopardy’ on ‘SNL’
Chadwick Boseman hosted Saturday Night Live this week, and of course he gave us a little King T’Challa action. He once again stepped into the role of Wakanda’s king for a new episode of the recurring sketch “Black Jeopardy,” hosted by Darnell Hayes (Kenan Thompson).
The joke this time plays off the sad reality that Wakanda is a fictional African nation. A place where law enforcement is a trusted keeper of the public peace and racial inequality is a foreign concept. You know, a place that in no way resembles the United States.
Sometimes the easy jokes are the right jokes. And this one even manages to squeeze in a brief, most welcome Coming to America reference.
