Michael Che on SNL

One of the most pressing problems of our day is Diversity among the cast of Saturday Night Live. For example, recently SNL was feted for hiring a woman to be Weekend Update anchor. But ratings are down so she got dumped a few weeks ago. But they brought in a black man, Michael Che, to be the new anchor, so that muted the SJW criticism of the sexism of firing a woman.

But, that doesn’t mean Che is home free. People like him who are Professional-Level Funny have a hard time taking seriously today’s obsessions. So, Michael Che is already in trouble for not taking the video of a woman walking through New York and getting catcalled by unemployed (black) guys as somberly as This Great Crisis of Our Age demands:

From Business Insider:

SNL Star Michael Che Offends With Sexist Facebook Status About Catcalling

CAROLINE MOSS

OCT. 29, 2014, 2:42 PM 5,643 16

Yesterday, a video about catcalling took over the internet.

It was taken from the perspective of a woman who walked around Manhattan with a camera, and documented the times when she was catcalled, spoken to, whistled at, or commented on.

It happened 112 times. Women on Twitter and Facebook were commiserating with the filmmaker, and many men and women were surprised that this kind of attention is unwanted, or even considered to be harassment.

The video has been viewed more than 6.5 million times.

Men including SNL star Michael Che, who took to Facebook to comment the following. He likens the catcalls to times when people come up to him on the street, recognizing him from SNL.

The amount of “likes” on the post is concerning, as were some of the comments from women and men below his statement. …

He then posted to Facebook again, using a somewhat sarcastic approach.

    George Kennan said it best:

    What concerns me most deeply are two phenomena, obviously closely connected, which have something to say to us about the mental and emotional state of large portions of our population. The first is the unrestrained decadence that has overcome so much of our social and cultural life: the delivery of most of the process of journalistic, electronic, and cultural communication into the hands of the entertainment industry and then the dreadful uses that industry makes of its near monopoly, not merely the low intellectual level but the shameless pornography, the pathological preoccupation with sex and violence, the weird efforts to claim for homosexuality the status of a proud, noble, and promising way of life, and in general the sweeping permissiveness and lack of moral leadership on which these distortions thrive.

    Beyond this, there is something that is to my mind even more menacing, and that is the evidence of real emotional instability in considerable portions of our population, particularly in the universities and among young faculty and portions of the student body. I have in mind the bizarre effects of such contagious hysteria as “political correctness,” but also something that is an unavoidable component of such hysterias, namely the total loss of a sense of humor.

    Agreed. Wonder if even Kennan would recognize America in this day and age. It's like, with all the pressing problems that we face, why are we attempting to out-Marx the former USSR from a cultural position?

    But at least Che has got a proper sense of proportion and showed restraint. Imagine if he told a joke about the Houston public bathrooms WWT issue.

    By the way, I’ve observed a couple of instances of white men catcalling women. In both cases it was really more like outright harrassment because the comments were lewd and aggressive. Both cases involved female college students crossing the street and a couple of men in a beat-up pickup truck who seemed kind of like stereotypical construction workers except without the guido accent. I was crossing the street too and I was actually pretty shocked when I heard what they said. This wasn’t in NYC but in a small city in the Northeast where most of the people are white and pretty behaviorally buttoned down.

    A few years ago, I spent almost a week in Mexico City and there was a major construction project going on across the street from the hotel where I stayed. I heard several whistles and shouts of “mami” from the construction workers as women walked by, although not too many women did. It seemed like it was more of an entertainment for the construction workers than about actually picking anyone up. The women I saw didn’t stop or anything. I didn’t hear anything really bad but then again I wasn’t close enough to hear everything and my Spanish is not that good.

    Of course, Michael Che is incredulous. For black men (i) all women (age and race are irrelevant) are open game and susceptible to the charms of the black man, (ii) it makes no sense to have all that charm if you don’t express it, (iii) expressions of interest are a matter of ordinary course for black men, and (iv) the target female should be grateful and proud to have attracted the attention of the black man. Conversation, interaction (whatever) with females is not the point–having sex with the female is the point. Any contact with a female–no matter how fleeting and slight–is an opportunity that can’t be wasted.

    Does it work? Pretty well, I imagine. Black females seem to be pretty receptive if the statistics for non-paternity events are accurate–instances in which the biological father of a child is someone other than who it is presumed to be–so why wouldn’t a black think his “game” is just as potent with non-black females? Hence the hyper-aggressive come-ons by black men. Even as far back as 1961 when Blacks were supposedly the model of bourgeois morality, 10.1% of black children were not those of the presumed biological father as against 1.4% of white children. Now I imagine the percentages have increased at least two-fold for both. Too, the torrent of White girls with mulatto children (and no father in sight) certainly confirms that Black men are very successful at seducing all and any available females with their blatant and aggressive methods.

    There’s a lot of talk that Black men are terrible fathers and absent and blah, blah, but I think most Black men know enough about their women-folk to know that the chances are pretty good that the children she claims are his are very likely not. Why invest in someone else’s biological offspring? It’s evolutionary suicide. Better to just spread his seed as far and wide as possible and let nature (and the welfare state) do the rest.

    no one here must have an attractive, blonde wife cuz my friend does and constantly getting attention from retarded black guys is not something you all should be defending. “Hey, I just wanted to say you look nice!” they yell from across the road *in front of her husband.* you’re all ok with that? you’re saying you’re ok with a scary black guy following your wife around? cuz that’s basically what was in the video.
    fwiw this type of video has already been done a few times and was passed around by us “conservatives” at twitter as evidence of the degenerate arabs and blacks that do this. but i guess i’m now a “liberal” since you all are so against SJW that you are pro-creepy blacks trying to bang your girl. good logic!

    Many of the men in that video are men of color. Men of color come from cultures where they’re constantly chasing women, because if they didn’t, they’d never pass on their genes otherwise. They’re a real turn off for women because they’re so poor and lower-class. Take a good look at that video. Those men are on the street during the daytime because they don’t have a job to be at. They’re on welfare or unemployed. Losers like that are so desperate to bag a female that they’ll hit every woman who looks a notch better than their grandmother. You don’t see cat-calling of that relentlessness from white men in white neighborhoods.

    One subtext here is that the culture of courtship among many NAMs is different than mainstream whites. There used to be a reality show where you could see this. I think it was called Blind Date. A man would pick up a woman in an SUV fitted with cameras (and, presumably, followed by a camera crew). You’d see edited footage of the date overlaid with sarcastic animation and text commentary.

    When the show featured a black couple, as soon as the guy picked up the girl he’d typically start asking her what kind of underwear she was wearing, etc. The conversation started out more overtly sexual.

    To be fair, Michael Che’s example is not an “apples to apples” comparison. As an actor, he and others who pursue the same profession are trying to be famous, trying to be noticed, and are likely thrilled when people recognize them on the street. The actor Kevin Bacon addressed this in a Telegraph interview, in which, among other things, he said, “Show me an actor who doesn’t want to be famous and I’ll show you a liar..”

    In contrast, a woman who is just walking down the street minding her own business is rarely seeking out strangers to follow her and yell at her.

They asked him how it went, and he said he went out with it once, and never again: "Because people weren't nice to me."

  16. @ Beach –I agree. Furthermore, a difference is that Che does not feel threatened by his fans, while women harassed on the street often do. My older daughter lives in a marginal neighborhood and has to put up with this every time she goes out. She tries to ignore the comments and then the fellow will start calling her a stuck-up bitch or a c—. Not pleasant. And yes, though she’s too pc to ever tell me, I know the men pestering her are primarily black and Hispanic.

    There probably is less catcalling, but I have read that there's a problem with strange men groping women on the Tokyo subway. Maybe separate women and children-only cars aren't available as in many countries. Apparently it's not uncommon to see men reading pornographic cartoon books in public there as well. In some places in the US, that would also qualify as harrassment.

    Also, if you include South Asians as "Asian," there seem to be some real issues in parts of India as evidenced by several of the high-profile rapes that have made it into the Western media in the past two years or so.

    The White woman in the video is obviously a KKK level racist for not giving out her personal cell number to any of the African American and Hispanic men who tried to holla at her.

    She should adopt Kim Kardashian’s taste in men. Even most Black women have not slept with as many Black men as Kim Kardashian has.

    Kim Kardashian has most likely never dated a White guy despite living in predominantly White neighborhoods her entire life.

    Yes, exactly. This is why it is not flattering. It is not a game between the men and the women it is a game the men are playing and the women are subjects/targets as in “see if I can get a reaction” entertain their friends, assert their dominance of the space.

    Guys who are flirting don’t get so predictably angry when women don’t want to play. what guy trying to flirt for real goes around acting openly hostile toward women who refuse to catch his eye or respond to his banter- it’s absurd.

    He apologized; he already lost. Now we know he’s just an obsequious company man.

    He might try to get back his “i-will-say-anything” street cred by attacking some p.c. pinata, such as white straight men with guns, white straight men hurting blacks, white straight men oppressing women, etc. He’d use some foul, FCC-button-pushing language and make an overt crude sexual metaphor that would be forgiven because it was only once and used against whitey.

    But unless he retracts the apology and goes off on how stupid this is—and quickly—he’s sunk. He might as well just resign himself to a lifetime of Democratic fundraising dinners and quick hits as fifth business on sitcom.

    p.s. his apology is the most passive-aggressive, limp-wristed, whiny, uber-hipster p.c. leftist apology I’ve ever seen come from a professional black funny man. Most blacks don’t bother apologizing, and if they do, it’s clearly a written statement that’s been lawyered to death. They simply do not have the capacity to determine right from wrong—it is rather to determine “good for me” and “not good for me.”

    Contra most blacks, an apology like this reeks of estrogen and a desire to go along with groupthink while at the same time biting back like a mean girl. If Michael Che isn’t on the down-low yet, you can bet that, when he turns 45 or 50, he will, like Buzz Bissinger, “realize” he’s gay and start molesting 25 year old twinks—likely white blond boys named Bruce.

    I was walking around DC on July 4th right after the fireworks with my then girlfriend (now fiancé). She was wearing a short dress and heels. She’s blonde and has, significant assets, which were on display.

    I on the other hand was 6’2 maybe 165, Looking like a geek in shorts and a plain white undershirt that exposed how little muscle I had.

    A big hummer 2 limousine is coming down the street, with black guys hanging out the windows and sunroof. They are clearly having a good time. They stop right by us and one of the window leaners calls out “hey, -why- are you -with him-?”

    Without missing a beat I smiled and said “I got a huge dick. Huge.” And held up my hands as if to measure.

    They howled with laughter, yelling out “ohhhh!” The way blacks do when somebody disses somebody, and sped away.

    Even though my gf knew I was lying about it, she looked at me like an alpha god.

    He apologized; he already lost. Now we know he's just an obsequious company man.

    He might try to get back his "i-will-say-anything" street cred by attacking some p.c. pinata, such as white straight men with guns, white straight men hurting blacks, white straight men oppressing women, etc. He'd use some foul, FCC-button-pushing language and make an overt crude sexual metaphor that would be forgiven because it was only once and used against whitey.

    But unless he retracts the apology and goes off on how stupid this is---and quickly---he's sunk. He might as well just resign himself to a lifetime of Democratic fundraising dinners and quick hits as fifth business on sitcom.

    You do understand his “apology” was sarcastic, right?

    " Men of color come from cultures where they’re constantly chasing women,"

    Asian men are also Men Of Color and they do not come from cultures where they are constantly chasing women. In the dating scene Asian men on average are even more Beta and Introvert than White men. Where do you think a woman is more likely to get catcalls on the street, Greece or Singapore ?

    “Asian men are also Men Of Color and they do not come from cultures where they are constantly chasing women.”

    … That just goes to show you what a ridiculous example of Orwellian double-speak the phrase “People Of Color” is.

    You want to walk down the street and have white guys hit on your wife?

    He’s not worried about that, for the same reason that he’s not worried that his wife will be kidnapped by Martians.

    “I happened to catch a couple of Che’s SNL sketch appearances. He’s not funny; or it’s possible he himself may be funny but the SNL writers have just fed him the same dull, sub-sophomoric, dud material they’ve churned out for the last thirty seasons.”

    Oh hey, it’s “there hasn’t been a single passable song released since 1958″ weighing in on comedy now.

  41. NEVER F***ING APOLOGIZE

    I’m glad to see this guy gets it. Hopefully more people will pursue this strategy. Because its the only one which offers any hope of surviving a PC lynch mob, with the added bonus that it preserves one’s dignity regardless. If you apologize, the lynch mob gets to eat you alive, 100 percent of the time. If you don’t, maybe something different happens. Its certainly worth trying!

    No, but I don't have to worry about that because they don't do it in a disrespectful way. it's a non-issue as illustrated in the video.

    So you’re neutral about being cuckholded “with respect”?

    Geez, I just don’t get you guy’s culture. No wonder guys saying “hi” to a woman on the street was so traumatizing to you.

    He also said “Hey, I just wanted to say you look nice!” they yell from across the road *in front of her husband.*

    You're just not going to get a lot of that from white guys, for whatever reason.

    Which men in the video are on welfare or unemployed? I see men in work clothes, merchants standing in front of their own stores, bicycle messengers, teenagers carrying backpacks, men waiting for the bus. Maybe I haven't looked as closely at the video as you have. Or maybe you don't know what you're talking about.

    All the black and Puerto Rican ones obviously

    I think he should keep trolling people with fake apologies “I’d like to apologize for my fifth apology…” anyone who continues to make a big deal out of it will show that they don’t care about the comment itself but about winning and showing their power.

    Even as far back as 1961 when Blacks were supposedly the model of bourgeois morality, 10.1% of black children were not those of the presumed biological father as against 1.4% of white children. Now I imagine the percentages have increased at least two-fold for both.

    No need to imagine. Black illegitimacy is around 70%. I don’t remember the figure for whites, but I think it’s inverted, with the legitimacy rate being around 70%, maybe 60? Both stats hide the real numbers, because marriage is only the official seal for monogamous cohabitation, which is substantially lower than the black stats indicate, and substantially higher than the white stats indicate.

    The acceptable targets are basically just heterosexual non-Jewish white males, so you work with it I guess ?

    FIFY.

    You do understand his “apology” was sarcastic, right?

    Race-realism tip: always assume a black male’s apology is something other than an apology. Usually the real meaning is “fuck you.”

    NEVER F***ING APOLOGIZE

    I’m glad to see this guy gets it.

    It’s not hard. The only time black males make apologies that sound genuine is when they’re in court (and maybe gov’t). And even those probably have to be thoroughly coached.

    “Hey, I just wanted to say you look nice!” they yell from across the road *in front of her husband.* you’re all ok with that? you’re saying you’re ok with a scary black guy following your wife around? cuz that’s basically what was in the video.

    Calm down, Sport – I don’t think that’s the behavior in the video they were defending.

    Catcalling a girl in front of her significant other seems like something altogether different from when she’s alone. It seems like an attempt to emasculate the man.

    Catcalling done the right way, under the right circumstances, is hardly an assault on a woman’s dignity. If it’s polite, and she’s clearly in a playful mood – smiling and making eye contact with you, rather than ignoring you – then it’s perfectly fine. It’s not that the men in the video are catcalling that makes it wrong – it’s that they’re often incredibly vulgar and even downright stalkerish to a woman who clearly wants nothing to do with them.

    I was harassed by a woman just last year. I was practicing my chipping on the practice green at a nice course in Sonoma County when this blond, 45-ish P.R./real estate type just accosted me with, “you have such a beautiful swing.” It’s true I have mastered the PW flop almost like Phil, but ladies’ day is thursday and this was tuesday, so in my view she shouldn’t have been on the scene at all. I wrote a letter to the editor of the Press Democrat complaining about oversexed Lexus liberals assuming every guy with tanned legs is available for sex, but they didn’t publish it.
