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?"
