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."
