Saturday Night Live spoofs Jeremy Lin racism controversy

Saturday Night Live did a send-up of the controversy surrounding various racially sensitive comments about Jeremy Lin late last week (video here). The skit reflects what we've heard from various comments on Outsports and other sites: The 'chink in the armor' and other comments would have been handled with more ferocity if they were about another race.

Does SNL make a point? What would be the reaction if the guy made homophobic comments? And is it possible that SNL actually had a funny skit?
