Kevin Hart & Seth Meyers Ask 'Really?!' To Antonin Scalia Over 'Racial Entitlements' Claim (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In light of Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia saying that key parts of the Civil Rights Act are the result of the "perpetuation of racial entitlement," "Saturday Night Live" Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers and stand-up comedian Kevin Hart had one question for Scalia and the right wing of the Supreme Court: Really?!

"Really, Supreme Court?" asked Hart, who hosted the show this week. "You don't think people can call you racist because Clarence Thomas is your one black friend? Nothing is more racist than having one black friend. Zero black friends is somehow less racist than having one black friend."

Meyers chimed in: "Your claim is that the Voting Rights Act is outdated? I don't think you get to decide what's outdated when you're a small council of old people in robes who decide our laws and can't be fired."

Even without his former co-Really?!er Amy Poehler to incredulously respond to the news, Seth Meyers and Kevin Hart are wise to highlight this issue. Check out the clip above.
