SNL's Michael Che Still Thinks Boston is 'Most Racist City'

Michael Che is not backing down from his claims that Boston earns the title of “most racist city” he’s ever visited.

During a stand-up appearance at Boston University this week, the 33-year-old co-anchor of Saturday Night Live‘s “Weekend Update” reportedly told students about all of the angry comments he received on social media after making the remark on SNL before the 2017 Super Bowl. (via The Boston Globe)

He told one woman, “Talk to your closest black friend and ask them to explain it to you,” to which the woman responded, “Touche.”

Michael also told the crowd he never apologizes for his controversial statements, explaining, “I’m just trying to be more presidential.”

“πŸ˜‚ cmon, thats pretty funny!” he shared on Instagram. “Listen boston, my grandma is racist too, but i still love her. & i still love you.”

“Lol those boston university kids tattled on me to the media? πŸ™„,” he added. “Yea, i said it. boston is racist. big f–kin deal.”

    I was paid 104000 bucks last 12 months by doing an internet based job and consequently I was able to do it by wΒ­orking in my own time fΒ­oΒ­r several hours on a daily basis. I tried work opportunity I stumbled upon on-line and also I am excited that I was able to make such decent cash. It is genuinely newbie-friendly and therefore I’m so blessed that I discovered out about it. Take a look at exactly what I do… http://urlof.site/XSfte

    Boston being racist is…not a secret. I don’t see the problem with the statement.

  • Sherman Kensinga

    I’m not going to say there isn’t racism in Boston, but son, try travelling overseas with your black skin. You’ll be glad to get back to Boston

    <- I was without work for 6 months when my former Co-worker lastly recommended me to start freelancing at home… It was only after I gained $5000 in my initial month when I really believed I am able to do this for a living! At the moment I am joyful than ever… I work-from-home moreover I am my own boss now like I always wanted… I see quite a lot of unsatisfied people around me, working the same old boring job that is sucking the daily life out of all of them day-after-day… Each time I see anybody similar to that I say START FREELANCING MAN! This is how I started . ➀➀➀➀ http://urlof.site/Fnla6

    ya i saw that in a book. i mean, its not racist to call out racism, so people need to calm the fuk down.

    Didn’t proud Bostonian Mark Wahlberg beat up a guy for being Asian back in the day?

  • Sally McCullough

    BRUTALLY beat him. Good catch

  • Sally McCullough

    Boston is the only city I’ve ever traveled to as full-strength white-trashy as Jacksonville Fla. Yes, Boston holds a treasured place in US history, and still, from the pizza guy to top echelons of the P.D., and the upper-edgers my business has forced me to rub elbows with, Boston certainly IS racist. Why would anyone find his statement to be even marginally controversial?
    Ohhhhh, the people who’ve never been there. Gotcha.

  • Mike Walsh

    I am a born and raised Bostonian and our city has come a very long way in regard to racism, but these comments by Michael Che race baiting does not help at all. I have no idea where he has gone in Boston and has ‘experienced’ this but he is a Yankees fan so he probably got trolled by Redsox fans because his team sucks, just mad bro. The guy is not funny at all and will be an unknown after SNL finally tanks. I have never laughed once at this guy on weekend update.

  • Mike Walsh

    Your an idiot because you don’t live here and have no clue. Boston has a older history of racism but it is 2017 and I am from here and that is far from the case. Jealous of our awesome city much.

    Huh? Where. Black jazz musicians weren’t beat up in France for having a cig outside the theatre on a break, miles Davis was in NYC. Sammy Davis could use the front door in Europe.

    labeling an entire city as racist? I mean he admitted to his gma being racist.. why don’t you focus on one person like your blood, & not an entire people of strangers. this is ridic just like his comedy.

  • devvv

    Yep, and it actually happened more than once.

  • devvv

    That’s not what your Mayor said about your “awesome city.”

    Is he jealous, too?

    The five-time Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots are AWESOME!
    Michael Che…not so much.

  • Amber

    He permanently damaged his eye from what I can remember.

  • leoandtheblondes

    He’s right. The city is racist. He told the truth. Ya’ll will have to deal.

  • http://hvchronic.com Steve Hopkins

    Boston has no more or less of a problem with Mr. Che’s chosen subject of white-on-black racism than most other large, similarly vibrant American cities. Washington, Philly, Cleveland and Chicago spring to mind. Racism in general continues to plague this nation and the world at large. And when all is said and done, it’s still a stacked deck, with the white cards on top. https://soundcloud.com/biff-thuringer/white-mans-world

    His team sucks? You mean the one leading the majors by a wide margin? Last time they did that was in ’09. Yup. Won’t be seeing the Blo Sux in the playoffs.

  • Andreyna Matos

    Has he been to Alabama? Boston has its history of racism but other places have more so…

  • SaraJ

    As someone who’s never been there, how so? Can you describe your experiences?

  • SaraJ

    Just because they “don’t help” doesn’t mean they’re not true. You can’t say what he’s experienced or not – you just said yourself it’s come a long way. As a Seattlite I’d never say that for example, because Seattle has never shown itself to be unaccepting or racist in the decades I’ve lived there.

  • Franky B

    I Have KNOWN MIKE SINCE HIGH SCHOOL AND HE WAS ALWAYS A UNPOPULAR KID BECAUSE HE SMELLED LIKE OLD LEFTOVER CHINESE FOOD AND HAD NASTY ASHY KNUCKLES ,THAT EVEN MY SISTER SAID THEY ABSOLUTLY WERE THE MOST DISGUSTING SHE EVER SAW ,AND SHE NEVER MAKES FUN OF ANYONE..SORRY TO SEE THAT HE HATES WHITE PEOPLE SO DEEPLY, HE RUINED SNL… LORNE MICHAELS IS A COMPLETE DISGRACE FOR LOSING CONTROL TO MIKE & Company…

  • Phil the Donahue

    Did you know that the original use for a douche was to clean out soldiers wounds. Then the man wanted to make more money out of his invention so he tried to sell it to women after the war. Basically you’re a wound cleaner or what the French simply call a shower. BTW< don't think SNL will ever tank since it's been on the air since the 70's. Someone's got the jellies.
