Last night on Saturday Night Live, Michael Che paid homage to a classic Eddie Murphy SNL sketch, “White Like Me” by going undercover to gain the perspective of a different rage. While Murphy famously turned himself into a white man to see how they lived, Che decided he needed to understand those that wrote him mail every time a marginalized group was offended by a joke he made on Weekend Update. But it turns out it was basically the same people writing him the letters. So, he decided to go under as “Gretchen,” a super liberal white woman.
And if you’ve never seen the Eddie Murphy sketch in question.
