Black Panther's King T'Challa Played Black Jeopardy on Saturday Night Live

Irene MckinneyApr 09, 2018

Boseman plays King T'Challa, the the beleagured leader of fictional kingdom Wakanda, in Black Panther.

The Black Panther star hosted the long-running United States sketch show last night (April 7), appearing in several sketches based on the hit Marvel movie. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T'Challa's mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.

The sketch features several fans coming out of Black Panther, and as two African-American fans discuss the movie two Caucasian fans walk up and do the Wakanda Forever salute.

Then finally T'Challa gets the prompt, "the policeman says there's been some robberies in your neighborhood and asks if you have 'any information"'. After all, our ministers of law and justice are only here to protect us.

"What is cause, I'm fid'na get a auto and I don't need all that on my credit", Shanice responded correctly.

"I mean, it should be", Thompson responds, with his face scrunched up. But before offering the correct response to when a white person named Karen brings her potato salad to your cookout, T'Challa explains his thought process.

Of course, T'Challa gets the answer right. "It is noble that she would volunteer to cook for everyone, and although I have never had potato salad, I sense that this white woman does not season her food. And if she does it's probably with a little bit of salt.and she will probably add something unnecessary like hell naw Karen keep your bland-ass potato salad to yourself".

It's easy to plop pop culture sensations into "SNL" sketches.

The 40-year-old actor hosted the sketch show on Saturday (April 7) and brought his Black Panther character T'Challa with him.
