The article discusses a sketch from the comedy duo Key & Peele titled "Black Ice". In this sketch, the comedians humorously address the phenomenon of "black ice" on roads during the winter, which is a thin coating of ice that is difficult to see and can cause cars to skid out of control. The sketch features Key & Peele pretending to be news anchors reporting on black ice incidents, but instead of focusing on the actual danger, they emphasize the racial stereotype associated with the term "black ice". The comedians cleverly explore the absurdity of associating a natural weather condition with race, using humor to critique societal prejudices.
