Michael Che Tells Irate Boston Woman “Ask Your Closest Black Friend” About City’s Racism
According to Boston Globe reports, Che told the audience that he still stands by a comment he made on “SNL” the night before the Super Bowl: Boston is “the most racist city” he’s ever been to.
Che revealed the comments resulted in a lot of angry messages for him on social media, including one from a woman who was extremely upset. Che said his response to her was to get some insight with someone who probably had some experience with it.
“Talk to your closest black friend and ask them to explain it to you.” To which she responded: “Touche.”
Daily Mail tracked down a Reddit user hkepchar, who was in the BU audience Thursday, who said Che’s bad experience with Boston stems from the time he was allegedly denied entry into a local bar because he was wearing ‘new Jordans’. Bouncers told the New Yorker that sneakers were against the dress code, even though other people inside were also wearing sneakers.
Have you guys experienced any racism in Boston? Do you think Michael Che was right?
