“Jeremy Lin ‘SNL’ Sketch Takes On Racist Linsanity Jokes”


Jeremy Lin ‘SNL’ Sketch Takes On Racist Linsanity Jokes, Media Commentary (VIDEO)

SNL’s satirical commentary on the Linsanity craze. While its depiction of race relations was humorous, it played on the API community’s somewhat lack of political consciousness, representation, and voice.

This skit was shown in light of ESPN’s insensitive headline towards the Knicks’ recent loss to the Hornets. “Chink in the Armor.” Really ESPN?
