Sasheer Zamata makes her debut tonight on Saturday Night Live, the first black female cast member since Maya Rudolph left in 2007.  Her hiring came after Kenan Thompson told TV Guide he no longer play roles in drag and suggested that fellow cast member Jay Pharaoh could take on that role to which Pharaoh said, the show needed to do what it’s been promising for years, hire a black woman.
