They just raised the bar for other groups who feel left out. Do they have openly gay people on there? How about spotted people? Striped people? Green people?

Sasheer doesn't look masculine, she looks more like she could be Chris Rock's little sister so stop confusing her with your bearded mother.

Her eyes are far apart. Beside she was hired as comedian and not a beauty queen. Sasheer looks much better than some of the white female comedian on SNL.

Please get some knowledge, hair is hair, eyes are eyes, skin is skin. There is no such thing as bad hair just different kinds of hair and who the hell is you to judge.
