SNL parodies "Lack of Diversity" criticism w/Kerry Washington


Kerry Washington hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend alongside rapper Eminem, amongst high criticism that the show does not cast enough black women in its cast. 

According to the Organization "Color of Change", Ms. Washington is ONLY the 9th woman of color to host the show in 40 years! Executive Producer for the show, Lorne Michaels addressed the issue head-on during the first opening act by mocking the lack of diversity and have Kerry characterize different noted black women, including Oprah Winfrey. There was also a surprise guest who happened to show up and add their 2 cents. Check out the video below. What are your thoughts? Did you think the skit was funny? Or was it disrespectful?
