"You do a good job providing a nuanced discussion of how racial issues are explored in contemporary comedy. It's notable that you specifically mention in your conclusion the idea that comedy cannot solve racial problems but is a useful vehicle for critique. Addressing various writing convention errors would improve the quality of your work. The title of a TV show such as SNL should be italicized while the names of individual episodes or sketches are enclosed in quotation marks. Other mistakes have to do with consistency in usage. It would be a good idea to hyphenate all compound modifiers that precede a noun to improve the clarity of your writing. The use of the semicolon should be revisited because sometimes you use it correctly and other times you don't. When referencing centuries such as the 1800s, no apostrophe is needed between the number 0 and the letter "s" because no content has been omitted. In terms of language use, you should choose between the terms "black" and "African American" instead of switching between the two."
