Tina Fey’s White Privilege Comedy
Before we begin: 53 percent of white women voted for Donald Trump. Just saying.
Anyway, Tina Fey went on Weekend Update and tried to deliver some ether to the president. She laid some zingers about Paul Ryan and the pres. But she also had a gag about encouraging people to stay at home and eat cake instead of resisting. The jokes were meant to entertain but it really reminded us of the privilege white people have to not engage in oppression because it doesn’t concern them.
So guess what happened next? People called her out for it. Hit the flip and let us know your thoughts. Just jokes? Or a serious issue.
