TVGuide.com recently asked SNL cast member Kenan Thompson some pointed questions about the show’s lack of women of color. Kenan asserted he would no longer be playing black women characters for the show. Though that decision is a heartening one, his comments on why there remains a gap in the representation of black women in comedic spaces were less than progressive. Kenan said, “It’s just a tough part of the business,” he tells TV Guide. “Like in auditions, they just never find ones that are ready.”
A group of funny black women decided to take on Kenan’s challenge. In this video, filled with vignettes and impressions showing off their talent. The end result is undeniable. Black women are ready for any stage.
this is epic
Okay remember that girl from the 2009 Wonder woman movie?
Yeah I made her a Wonder Girl. Because why not?
Her hobbies include swordfighting, fangirling over Diana, and dismantling the patriarchy.
Batgirl (Nissa) & Flash (Dani)
So much happiness in the Beyond Universe with two new characters who are both women and, even better, women of color.
