Kevin Nealon: Here now, with her own unique opinion on the Clarence Thomas situation, is SNL's #1 soul sister, Queen Shenequa. Queen?
Queen Sheniqua: Thank you, Kevin! This is Queen Sheniqua for "Update" - I'm mad about Clarence Thomas being comfirmed to the Supreme Court. The sexual harassment, that bothered me. But you know what bothered me more? He was sitting up there with that white woman, you see that? Where's the Klan when you need them? Didn't they start the Klan to prevent things like that? Disproportionately, successful black men marry white women - what's up with that? Kevin's doing very well - he's doing "Update" now, he's pretty successful, you don't see him pushing up next to Queen Shenequa, do you? Do you?
Kevin Nealon: [ shaking head ] No.. no..
Queen Sheniqua: But if Chris Rock was sitting in that anchor chair, he'd be all up in Victoria Jackson's face, like white on rice! Or black on rice, as the case may be, right, Kevin?
Kevin Nealon: Well, I'm not so sure I follow..
Queen Sheniqua: Well, follow this - you know what it is? It's the press that black women get! For years, the only black women you saw in movies were turning tricks as hookers, a negative image. But as soon as Julia Roberts played a prostitute, she became "Pretty Woman"! Critics caled her a "modern day Cinderella". She was a whore! Julia Roberts was a ho! Now, America can't get enough of prostitution! Now, there's a lot of movies - "La Femme Nikita", "The Last Prostitute".. now they got one called "Whore"! I got it! We need a movie to get our men back! How about, instead of "Boyz 'N The Hood", we could have a movie called "Man In My House". Instead of "New Jack City", "Man In My House". "Jungle Fever"? "Man In My House"! Thank you, Kevin.
Kevin Nealon: Thank you, Queen Shenequa.
