In the wake of the RACIST yearbook photos which alerted the American people to the sleeper-agents of hatred and bigotry in our elected offices, it is more clear than ever that such intolerance has no room in our modern society. There is NO EXCUSE for any person to ever demean others, and it is our responsibility to oust these people from their positions of power.

JIMMY FALLON STARRED IN A RACIST SKETCH ON SNL 
Jimmy Fallon was a featured actor on NBC's Saturday Night Live between 1998 and 2004, during this time Fallon took the opportunity to dress in blackface and don an African-American dialect in a sketch where he portrayed famed black comedian Chris Rock. During the skit, Fallon (as Rock) made remarks about how Black people were not regularly featured on NBC's Who Wants To Be a Millionaire, stated how black people "do not like to answer questions" unless it was something like "how much crack did Rick James smoke" and suggested the show be called "Who Wants Fifty-Dollars and a Pair of Pumas".

This was broadcast on national television, where the audience can be heard gasping at the atrocious portrayal of black Americans.

The undersigned of this petition demands an apology from the SNL writing staff, the production team that thought this was appropriate (including Lorne Michaels), NBC networks and Jimmy Fallon. We would also urge that Fallon resign from his post as host of NBC's Tonight Show, as he has obviously built a lucrative career after dehumanizing African-Americans on national broadcast television.
