Couldn't they at least find a good looking light skinned black woman because this broad is hideous.

If you're going to hire a female boon, at least hire one of them high yellows, not some ugly black tarbag.

Someone better check the list of cast members over the years because this is NOT the first female black cast member. Maya Rudolph (daughter of singer Minnie Ripperton) was on the show also until 2007.

How do you know they are white? They could Asian, Hispanic, or even self hating Blacks.

I agree. I don't watch SNL much anymore but they have this one fat heffa and this other unattractive hoe one there every time I turn SNL on.

I agree. I don't think anyone would be talking about a male comedian like that.

Yep, just look at tubby Kenan Thompson and Bobby" Moynihan and the many other unattractive male cast members. Since it's a comedican, I don't think even white women's looks would be judged as Sasheer's is being judged. Look at some of the white women SNL have had as cast members in the past.

I don't think they have ever had any hot women on that show. I couldn't care less ... just make me laugh (which SNL has a problem doing anymore).

A woman's looks should only factor into the equation if you are knocking boots with her, IMO.
