- Let Jay Pharoah do things. He’s more or less the only dude on your staff who is talented, but—oops—God knows you can’t give more than one black man airtime in a week.
- Hire. A. Black. Woman.
- Seriously. Please?
THIS. I’d do so many awful things with Jay Pharoah, he’s mad talented.
And more black women plz.
And Asian women! There are so many hilarious Asian women…Margaret Cho, Charlyne Yi…but SNL has never had ANY Asian women as cast members. Come to think of it…I don’t think any Asian men have been cast members.
I need a drink, man.
Nasim Pedrad is an Asian woman. (And Fred Armisen’s part-Japanese - I think he generally “passes”, but still.)
But yes, SNL has always had race issues. Like, they should probably be able to do a sketch about Beyonce or Michelle Obama without waiting for Maya Rudolph to come back. Tonight was great though. Jay Pharoah! I didn’t realize until just now how good at stuff he is!
