During the latest broadcast of Saturday Night Live, comedian Chris Redd spoke about Black History Month and questioned the racial purity of more than 20 African Americans leaders who prayed for President Donald Trump in the White House. Marc Little, who is CURE’s Board Chairman, led the prayer on February 27 while laying his hands on the President.
Redd smeared Pastor Marc Little, who is black, as a “house negro,” and claimed black leaders who attended the White House briefing for Black History Month had the “blackness sucked out of them” by Trump. Redd continued his racist screed by insinuating President Trump wore blackface and the black leaders were criminals trying to see what “pocket he puts his wallet.” Redd concluded by asking SNL’s audience, “Does this look like black history?”
We call on the comedian, SNL, and NBC to apologize to Christians and black Americans.
Pastor Marc Little responded to the racist SNL sketch:
“Chris Redd and Saturday Night Live don’t get to determine who is black. There’s nothing funny about a racist commentary disguised as humor. Pastors like me stand in front of millions of black Americans every Sunday. We work with families who share the same concerns as any other American: what schools our children attend and how much we pay for our gas and groceries. We stand for Christ over color. We stand against bigoted liberals who believe it’s wrong for others to pray for the President of the United States. They will not dictate who is deserving of prayer. God has already defined that.
“Black conservatives will not be bullied by liberal elites. President Trump’s policies are changing the lives of black Americans in historic ways. Progressive policies have failed the black community, so liberal elites’ only response is unfiltered racism.”
SNL TRANSCRIPT, February 29, 2020 (SNL VIDEO:
“Look at these White House negros. Who are you all praying to? The ghost of blackface past?
“Trump has got his eyes open during a prayer like he’s trying to remember which pocket he put his wallet in.
“He’s sitting there looking like the basketball from ‘Space Jam,’ just sucking all the blackness out of them. Does this look like black history to you?” — Chris Redd, Saturday Night Live (February 29, 2020)
