This hilarious skit about race from 'SNL' last season should be shown every year.
I'm living for this hilarious take on what we choose to celebrate on the shortest month of the year.
Last year, "Saturday Night Live" hired newcomer Sasheer Zamata as a featured player (as well as Leslie Jones as a writer), increasing the number of black women on staff from zero to two. This is the first time in the 40-year history of "SNL" that there has been more than one black woman on the staff. This is one of the first skits in the new and diverse era, and I love that they were able to do it — finally.
Here's to "SNL" finally getting to a place where they actually have enough cast members to even make the joke that Black History Month might not be enough, considering reasons 2-28.
