After months of looking, ‘Saturday Night Live’ has finally added a black female star to it’s lineup!

Sasheer Zamata will join “SNL” as a new regular cast member this month, according to NBC. She will make her debut on January 18, when Drake hosts.

SNL has been getting a lot of grief over their lack of diversity, which hasn’t had a black female star since Maya Rudolph left in 2011.

I didn’t know Rudolph was black. I thought she was a latina mix.

I read somewhere she was part black – but who knows – you could be right!

Her father is an Ashkenazi Jew and her mother was African American. I didn’t know. Crazy
