Che explained to Howard Stern that Saturday Night Live isn't the place for certain race-specific sketches. "Something that's like racially specific, the audience is kind of looking at Saturday Night Live as Lorne Michaels' show," Che said. "They're not looking at it as 'Oh, this is a Black writer who is making this nuanced observation or whatever.' So it's a little trickier. On my show (That Damn Michael Che), I can get away with it because they know it's me."
