While doing promo for this current season of Saturday Night Live, when asked about what the show will do when the need to spoof a black female character arises, Kenan Thompson told TVGuide.com, “I don’t know. We just haven’t done them.” He added, “Maybe [Jay Pharaoh] will do it or something, but even he doesn’t really want to do it.”
Thompson blames the lack of quality black female comedians. “It’s just a tough part of the business,” he tells TV Guide. “Like in auditions, they just never find ones that are ready.”
Well some female actresses/comedians are not featuring what Miss Kenan had to say at all. These funny women put together a rather funny montage of clips, mocking some of pop cultures biggest stars just as SNL would. The end result is a gut busting ball of laughter. Check out the video.

Yes Gawd Hunty, Beyonce is serving Mary J Blige, Toni Braxton, Halle berry Realness. Go in and let have. Quiet as its kept, the heffa probably had to cut all her hair of because it was damaged from all that color, those hot a$$ lace fronts, and getting tangled in wind machines. Non the less, I’m here for everything she sis serving. On the last leg of hr tour, Queen Bey snatched off her wig and the fans and stans went crazy. I’m sure this radical chop will inspire legions of women to go out and get a cute pixie cut. That might be a good thing because lord knows I am tired of y’all wearing these 55 inch weaves in styles and colors in which your hair

“When and where I enter, in the quiet undisputed dignity of my womanhood, without violence, and without suing or special patronage, then and there… the whole race enters.” – Anna Julia Cooper
Laverne Cox may not see herself as a fearless trailblazer for the Black and trans communities, but that is exactly what she is. From our first introduction to her on VH1′s I Want To Work For Diddy to her most recent role as one of the stars of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, Cox has epitomized those poignant words uttered by our ancestor Anna Julia Cooper. The trajectory of Cox’s life is one of violence and special patronage, but also one of dignity and barrier breaking.
As a Black trans woman, Cox has had a tough row to hoe in a society that has yet to come to terms with the existence of transgender people. While much progress has been made in the fight for transgender equality, the journey is far from over. Black trans women like Cox, Isis King, and Monica Beverly Hills have made historic strides in the world of entertainment, but those steps have coincided with the continued discrimination and violence that many Black trans women face in their everyday lives. Like Cox’s own history of harassment, Black trans women experience high rates of street harassment, domestic violence, and serial killing. I mention this not to portray the Black trans community as one solely on the receiving end of violence, but to illuminate on the complex and diversified existence of Black trans women like Cox. It is a testament to her own inner resolve and determination that she has pressed on in spite of the realities of a world that would rather she not.
Before turning heads as Sophia Burset in Orange Is the New Black, Cox became the first Black trans woman to produce and star in her own TV show, TRANSform Me. Cox, like fellow Black actress Kerry Washington, mixes art and activism. Her role in Hollywood is not as one who solely takes on roles and performs in projects, but also one who advocates and raises awareness for her community. I had the pleasure of meeting Cox, last year, at the National Black Justice Coalition’s annual Out on the Hill leadership summit for Black LGBT leaders. Cox moderated a historic Black Trans Women town hall that foregrounded the experiences of Black trans women. It was inspiring to see a woman who I know is dedicated to both her craft and her community. Continue reading

There must be something in the water in Hollywood because everyone is popping up pregnant.
