Kenan Thompson Says There Are No Black Women On “Saturday Night Live” Because There Aren’t Enough Funny Black Women

Kenan Thompson Says There Are No Black Women On "Saturday Night Live" Because There Aren't Enough Funny Black Women

I like Kenan Thompson a lot. He’s probably my favorite actor on “Saturday Night Live” right now. But what the heck was he thinking when he spoke to TV Guide about diversity on “SNL”? The show hasn’t had a Black woman on the cast for six years, despite having numerous other performers of color, including Thompson, Jay Pharoah (who is Black), and Nasim Pedrad (who is both Iranian and a woman).  Yet when asked why “SNL” hasn’t cast a Black woman, Thompson suggested that there just aren’t enough funny Black ladies:

Does “SNL” Think Domestic Violence Against Tiger Woods Is Funny?


I had uncomfortable feelings about this “Saturday Night Live” skit where Kenan Thompson and Blake Lively make fun of Elin Nordegren allegedly beating up Tiger Woods. Ever since the Woods/Nordegren shiz-nit went down over Thanksgiving, I’ve been noodling a blog post about how I’ve heard and read nothing condemning Nordegren’s what-sounds-a-lot-like domestic violence against her husband and the fact that he seems to be covering for her.
