SNL’s writers seemed to think that in order to make up for the lack of black women in the rest of their episodes, Washington would have to play pretty much every single black female stereotype…ever. I applaud SNL: I don’t think the missed a single black stereotype; it’s quite the accomplishment. During the show’s 90 minute running time, Washington managed to be “the ghetto black girl,” “the foreign African,” “the mistress,” “the over obsessive girlfriend,” and of course Michelle Obama, Oprah and Beyoncé (or as I like to call them, the trifecta of awesomeness). Washington was completely pigeonholed in every role she played. It was almost as if the writers figured this would be one of the few opportunities where they would have a black female host, so they better parody every black woman alive today.
While there are numerous problems with SNL having Kerry Washington portray stereotypically black characters, the main problem I see lies in the fact that a black woman can be considered a character in the first place. The fact that there’s even a specific role or stereotype that Washington can be asked to play is problematic, because it underlines the cultural prejudice towards black women in America. The SNL sketches fall to the idea that black women are not people like everyone else, just caricatures of personalities—loud, obnoxious, or promiscuous."

"I loved the cinema always, and I loved to go watch movies. But what I saw there was just stupid lies and fake stories. I never saw life and I never saw anything about the people I knew. I never saw real passion, I never saw real emotions, or real camerawork. I never saw a real movie. I thought, if they cannot show me, then I have to do my movie. […] The problem is that most films follow the same pattern: action, cut, action, cut. They only watch the story line. But story is not only about human actions, everything can be a story. A man waiting at a corner can be a story. There are many things that are important in real life but that filmmakers find boring. I don’t think that these things are boring. In my films, I want to be closer to life than to cinema."

I created this because my best friend and I are taking a trip to London! We hope to come back to the states fully British.
I had to cut it up into individual images because of tumblr’s compression… If you really need to view this as one whole image, you can do so here.
