Saturday Night Live Sums Up the Electorate Divide in a Little Over Six Minutes

       Here is the “Black Jeopardy” sketch fro this week's installment of Saturday Night Live that has been passed around the web for two days now. Everyone loves it, and rightfully so. The sketch manages a rarity for SNL in recent times—it is both funny and relevant. Tom Hanks' caricature of a “typical'” Donald Trump supporter is icing on the cake.
       I will not spoil anything by setting up the sketch. Just know it captures well the often unacknowledged common concerns between often opposing groups of people. The things that unite us are truly greater than those which divide us.
        A trigger warning is probably in order for the satirically impaired regardless.
