Weekend Update: Eddie Murphy on the First Black Astronaut

Also available on the nbc app

Eddie Murphy is supposed to comment on NASA's first black astronaut, but goes off on the idea that white people are more like monkeys than black people. Eddie uses a crew member's hairy chest and The Monkees theme song as evidence. [Season 7, 1982]
