To celebrate the beginning of Black History Month, SNL released a sketch in their latest episode this past Saturday, which included the song,“28 Reasons To Hug A Black Guy Today.”

The video is set in a high school and features cast members Keenan Thompson, Jay Pharoah, and newest addition to the ensemble Sasheer Zamata. The teacher informs the class that February is Black History Month, and asks someone to come up and share a presentation. Highlights include: the three reminding everyone of racial injustice and a white male student being immediately silenced by the teacher as he attempts to rap his response.

You may quickly realize the “28 Reasons” are actually just two, but don’t take our word for it, watch the video below, and prepare to have it stuck in your head the rest of the day.
