BOSTON (AP) — Michael Che, co-anchor of “Weekend Update” on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” is not backing away from comments he made about Boston, when he called it the “most racist city” he has ever visited.

The Boston Globe reports Che told a crowd at Boston University Thursday about how he received many angry messages on social media after he made the comment on “SNL” the night before the Super Bowl. He responded to one woman by urging her to “talk to your closest black friend and ask them to explain it to you.”

He says the woman responded by answering, “Touche.”

Che, who often jokes about President Donald Trump on the show, told the audience he never apologizes for language or controversial statements because “I’m just trying to be more presidential.”

    Bill Burr has been saying the same thing for years without any outrage, in fact actually being given many standing ovations in Boston. Yet because Che is black, he gets attacked by Bostonians? LOL. Talk about helping to prove a point.

    I dont know about the racism, but I just wish Che would say something funny while on SNL. Che and that other kid are atrocious as SNL news anchors. I think between the pair of them, for as long as they have been on the show now, that they have had maybe 3 funny lines.

  3. screw you your the racist

    1. “You’re” the dumb racist Jethro! Learn English or get out of the country!

    These are the liberal elites my friend. They tout being tolerant, generous, and most of all knowing exactly what is good for you. When they get with their liberal friends they are most condescending racist Aholes in the country

    1. Haha, poor wittle conservatard snowflake is triggered. You sound angry son, try being “tolerant”!

  5. My black friend was told by cops in South Boston he could not watch a little league game, “For his own safety” they made the only black guy leave. Bost is still very racist.

      Who cares if Boston is or isn’t racist. The point is that the more “diversity” there is, the higher the crime rate. Which is why NH, VT, ME have the lowest crime rates in the US. MA is pretty low, too, considering the amount of minorities there are… and, unfortunately, growing. Boston missed a bullet a few decades ago when the riots over busing happened. They received a “racist” label and blacks avoided the city. It happened to be a godsend as the state enjoyed low crime and high educational standards. Now the state is getting screwed up because of progressive anti-white imbeciles like Deval Patrick embracing illegals and other criminals. Thanks, Mini-me, for welcoming MS-13 and other low IQ hispanic illegals. I’m sure they’ll be adding greatly to the college educated workforce. Just like in NYC and CA…

  6. he’s not wrong.. most racist person I met in my life was my Irish grandmother who grew up in Southie

  7. I agree with Che. if you ever drive thru there it is one of the darkest and most keep you doors locked areas ,and if yu do stop be locked and loaded.

  8. I watched when I was in high school the desegragation of the boston schools and it was the worst thing Id ever seen. The hate pouring out of the white people trying to stop the busing was just ugly. Would be very surprised if that has all just gone away

  9. I grew up in the area and have traveled extensively throughout the United States. New England is by far the most racist area i have lived in, they may be liberal in a lot of issues, but race is not one of them.

  10. I don’t know whom I detest more leftist white apologist marxist maggots or their pathetic petulant perpetual victim pets. Can we just separate already the diversity experiment has failed. it’s no white privilege having to live w/ these crybabies. My gr01d fatigue is through the roof. This unfunny black hack should try going to Harare Zimbabwe & ask whites about the blacks governing there if he wants to hear about real racism

  11. MLK jr called Chicago the most racist city he ever visited. Seems these liberal cities are extremely hateful.

  12. I thought the South was racist? Hint: I’m from the South and it is easily the most inclusive region in America. Glad some of you yanks are getting your chain pulled for once.

  13. How would he comment about the racism in Chicago, Maryland or South Phoenix, Arizona. Being black doesn’t necessarily give you the authority or rights on calling others a racist. Recognize it within your own world first, racism is done on both side of the color spectrum. Being a minority does not make it politically correct to be racist towards others (racism is racism even towards the majority).
