British actor Daniel Kaluuya, in a live comedy show, compared British and American racism and also poked fun at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s race allegations against the royal family.
According to the media reports, the Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya made his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live.
While setting the tone for a fun night with a bold monologue, Daniel Kaluuya said with a laugh,
“I know you’re hearing my accent and thinking, ‘Oh, no, he’s not Black! He’s British!’ I’m here to reassure that I am Black,”
“I’m black, and I’m British. Basically, I’m what the royal family was worried the baby would look like.”
Kaluuya also discussed racism in the UK and US. He said:
“People ask me what’s worse, British racism or American racism.”
He added that
“Let me put it this way, British racism is so bad white people left. They wanted to be free, free to create their own kind of racisms. That’s why they invented Australia, South Africa and Boston.”
