Black Jeopardy

“Saturday Night Live” scored big last night with a hilarious round of “Black Jeopardy.” Kenan Thompson played host Darnell Hayes, a.k.a. Alex Treblack. Jay Pharoah (as Amir) and Sasheer Zamata (as Keeley) battled it out with SNL guest host, comedian Louis C.K. as Mark, a professor of African-American studies from Brigham Young University.

The categories included topics: “White People,” “It’s Been A Minute,” “That Girl,” “On Punishment,” “Had That Been Me,” “Psssh!” and “Rap Songs That Begin With ‘N’.”

The hilarious spoof was both a nod to the 50th anniversary of the iconic game show—which premiered on March 30, 1964 as the “thinking person’s” game—and to a painfully awkward episode of Jeopardy featuring White people avoiding answering questions about Black History.

As previously reported by NewsOne, on a college championship edition of “Jeopardy,” three White college students—Laurie Beckoff, a sophomore at the University of Chicago; Tucker Pope, a junior at Texas A&M University; and Whitney Thompson, a junior at the University of Oklahoma (pictured above L-R)—side-stepped the Black History category until there were absolutely no other questions for them to choose from.

The three students confidently answered questions in such categories as “International Cinema Showcase,” “Weather Verbs,” and “Kiwi Fauna.” But when it came to Black history, which some would insist is American history, the three little geniuses didn’t have a clue.

In the end, they ended up answering three of five questions correctly, but missed questions about the Scottsboro Boys and the 1st Rhode Island Regiment.

Watch the clip below; begin at the 15:46 mark:

“SNL” obviously pays attention to #BlackTwitter, because the response to the above episode were the hashtags #Black Jeopardy #RatchetJeopardy and #GhettoJeopardy.
