One of the most hilarious Black Pather-themed sketches of the night was the Black Jeopardy bit in which Boseman reprises his role as T'Challa as he tries to answer trivia related to black culture.

The sketch features several fans coming out of Black Panther, and as two African-American fans discuss the movie two Caucasian fans walk up and do the Wakanda Forever salute.

Chadwick Boseman hosted "Saturday Night Live" this weekend and not only did he play Black Jeopardy, he did so as T'Challa, the Black Panther himself. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T'Challa's mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk. And at others, the exchange offered an incisive comedic critique on Black America's reality versus mythical Wakanda's.

"What is, to honor her as the foundation of the family", T'Challa answered in a very honest manner.

"That's really nice. It's wrong, but it's really nice", the host responds in bewilderment.

Thompson: The policeman says there's been some robberies in your neighborhood and asks if you have "any information."

Eventually, however, Boseman's T'Challa catches on and is ready for the "White People" section question: 'Your friend Karen brings her potato salad to your cookout'.

By then, T'Challa finally got the hang of it.

'And if she does, it is only with a tiny bit of salt. "Something tells me that I should say, 'Aw hell nah, Karen, keep your bland-ass potato salad to yourself".
