It pretty much goes without saying, if you have a black host of a predominately white award shows, there’s going to be something in for the culture. Michael Che did just that last night at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards. In a skit widely held as one of the top moments of the night, he presented reparation Emmys to some of Black Hollywood’s legends that were long overdue for the award including Tichina Arnold, Kadeem Hardison, Marla Gibbs, Jaleel White, John Witherspoon and Jimmy Walker.

“You know, as a black comedian, for so many years, our TV legends and heroes have gone unrecognized. So this year as host, I took it upon myself to finally right some of those wrongs,” he said.
