The “N-Word” on SNL

Richard Pryor died today. One of the true comic geniuses of my day. I blogged about a year ago how his “word association” sketch on Saturday Night Live probably wouldn’t make the air today because of political correctness.

Well, I was wrong. Tonight, during the News Update with Tina Fey, they pulled the clip where Chevy Chase interviewed Pryor by giving him a word association test. I’m sure you remember it: Chase begins using slang words for black people. The result was one of the funniest bits I’ve ever seen on SNL. Kudos to SNL for showing it again.
