'SNL' Held Secret Auditions For Black Female Comedians

• http://www.businessinsider.com,
 

Out of 16 "SNL" cast members, currently only three are comedians of color — Kenan Thompson, Jay Pharaoh, and the Iranian Nasim Pedrad.

The issue has gotten so bad that Thompson refuses to dress in drag until the show hires a black female cast member.

Despite "SNL" mocking the race issue in recent sketches, it appears Executive Producer Lorne Michaels is actually trying to do something about the problem.
