via Netflix

In 2016, Saturday Night Live Weekend Update anchor Michael Che starred in his first Netflix stand-up special, Michael Che Matters. His set contained a hilarious take on why some people have a problem with the phrase "black lives matter."

"As a country we just can't agree. We just fight about everything. We can't even agree on black lives matter. That's a controversial statement," Che says in the clip below. "Not matters more than you. Just matters. Matters! Just matters."

"That's where were starting in negotiations," he continued. "We can't agree on that shit? What the fuck is less than matters? Black lives exist? Can we say that? Is that controversial?"

Che recently appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers and discussed the bit in light of the term's resurgence after the murder of George Floyd.

The comedian says he's "happy that people like the clip, but it's also kind of a bummer that it's still relevant," adding it makes him feel like "the guy who wrote 'Amazing Grace': You're happy you hear the song, but every time you hear it you're like 'Oh no, what happened?'"

It's been four years since his comedy special. Unfortunately, the term "black lives matter" is still controversial.

"After a while, you stop worrying about why they don't want to give it to you and you get to the point where you just demand it," he told Meyers. "We've been asking for so long that people are at a point where they don't want to ask anymore, and that's kind of the reality and it's sad."

Amymarie Gaertner shared a revealing video she created about how difficult it is for people with ADHD to clean the house and many are saying it perfectly describes the disorder.

Gaertner admits that she's "never been professionally diagnosed but it's pretty damn evident I've had it since I was little." But her behaviors mirror those described by ADHD blogger Katy Rollins, who says that "many people who have attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) have difficulty with tasks like household cleaning and organization."

"The requirements of these tasks often max out our ability to logically and emotionally even start them, never mind follow them through to completion," she adds.
