Meh. I found plenty to laugh at. LOVED the nutty Maine Justice sketch. Loved Update. Loved the Game Show and the Christmas tree pimp. Didn't get the Swarovski skecth but then again I don't like that one chick (the who does JPop), but I loved JPop.

Also loved watching Hader and Foxx cracking up.

A few weeks ago after Sandy hit: fred armison pretended to be Bloomberg speaking Spanish and was saying to be patient with white people because they were impatient with the electricity not on right away,but people aren't upset with that and even then I thought it was hilarious. Snl isn't PC. And yes crazy enough they have been known not to be tasteful.
SNL has always pushed the race button for effect, but it's usually provocative & funny. I'm more upset that this was pointless, unfunny drivel than I am that it was racist.

edit: and I don't recall Jeff Foxworthy ever referring to "white" rednecks. "Redneck" is a personality, not a race

This one talks race, but it's FUNNY:

I don't have a problem with him saying stuff about his own race. My point was that if a white person said something about killing all the black people and followed it up with the comment "how GREAT is that?" they'd be forced to make a public apology. I just didn't think that comment was funny or necessary. I'm all for poking fun at myself and my Italian heritage but I wouldn't make a derogatory remark about killing all the Jews or Germans or Indians. It's the same thing.
