‘Weekend Update’ Mocks Starbucks, Zimmerman

NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” mocked Starbucks’ “Race Together” campaign and George Zimmerman during its “Weekend Update” segment.

Host Michael Che reported on George Zimmerman’s criticisms of President Obama for inflaming racial tensions before remarking “at least he [Zimmerman] thinks it was Obama, it was pretty dark at the time.”

Later, Che commented on Starbucks’ “Race Together” campaign wondering “I don’t know. How did they think that was going to work? I mean, were we supposed to talk about race like we talk about sports? Hey, Colin, how about those blacks, huh? Can’t catch a break, am I right?” To which Colin Jost said “yeah, they’ve had a rough season. You know, I think the whites are going to win it all again this year.”

The sketch concluded with them concluding that the “team” to look out for was the Mexicans, in part, because as Che joked, they have a “good farm system.”
