This past weekend, actress Kerry Washington hosted "Saturday Night Live," raising questions and concerns by the cast and viewers on the show's diversity. According to the Associated Press in "Lack of black women becomes 'SNL' issue" the current SNL cast features no black women and of the 137 cast members since the show's inception in 1975, only four have been black women.
"The show still is an important part of the culture, and misses something when there's a lack of diversity, [Miriam Petty] said."
