The Unremarkable SNL Casting of Sasheer Zamata
Posted on March 20, 2014
Everybody was so excited about SNL‘s worst kept secret: they were auditioning black women to join the cast. And yesterday, news broke that the coveted position went to Sasheer Zamata. We’ll see her first on the return episode of SNL onJanuary 18th, featuring Drake as the host and musical guest (the melanin will be overflowin’!).
With that announcement, people thought it was the second coming of the Civil Rights Movement. Now we get to drink from the SNL water fountain and pee in the SNL toilet too. We are “breaking barriers” and “entering uncharted territory”.
Please. It ain’t that serious.
