How Black Female Comedian Nyima Funk Readies for SNL

Yesterday we wrote a little something about how Kenan Thompson believes Black female comedians aren’t “ready” to be on Saturday Night Live. If you happened to miss it, you can click right here. Basically our reaction was a complex amalgamation of an hour-long record scratch and every spit take in cinematic history. It was a fine piece.
Today we are formally seceding our piece from the Internet because comedian Nyima Funk has issued the perfect response to this idiocy. Not only is Funk’s video a smart and concise critique of SNL‘s race issues but it’s also way funnier than a majority of the show’s sketches. Consider the gauntlet thrown, Kenan Thompson.
