Historically, Black men — and women — have been fetishized, raped, abused, and even falsely accused based on racist stereotypes that suggest we are more potent, endowed, or sexually lewd.

That Africa skit was tone def, insensitive and inappropriate. Men and women in Nigeria, Namibia, South Africa and The Democratic Republic of the Congo are fighting for their lives and to reduce the continent as sexual destination for white women is shameful. #SNL

That "Africa" #SNL sketch was Not Good. It portrayed bad stereotypes of black men and objectified them which is truly just not funny.
