Excuse me…

If you’ve ever watched old Saturday Night Live Episodes, you’ve seen Steve Martin doing the whole, “Excuuuuuse me!!”

A friend of mine corrected me on my shit. I’m woman enough to say, “Yeah, okay, I can accept that I was wrong.” Which I did. Then, ol’ Steve does it again.

Allow me to roll back the clock-I wrote a blog about why I couldn’t get down with Stephen King-magical negro-ness etc and now, he made these remarks about the Oscars. #oscarsstillsowhite Man, I have never seen a man try to back pedal so hard in my life. Like running in fresh puppy dog shit.

I was all set to step off then, I ran across these two articles. This one was by Nnedi Okorafor-addressing the Stephen King Master Degree in Magical Negrodom. The other is a funny (but true) article on Magical Negroes in film and literature.

Enjoy!
