You have probably heard by now that Saturday Night Live has hired a female African-American. The media criticized #SNL recently for a lack of diversity. Now they have hired Sasheer Zamata to fill that role. Apparently, there is no truth to the rumor that they really wanted a gay, black female, single parent of the Jewish faith. I guess no one is perfect. We can only hope that she is also left handed. The criticism started when the two African-American male cast members, refused to shave their legs to portray black women. It is unknown if they were okay with portraying white women.
When I was unemployed, I was in a networking group run by the Department of Labor. The leader of the group would sometime say that employers couldn’t discriminate in hiring practices based on race, sex, age, religion, or handicap. That’s a bunch of crap. Most state and federal agencies are exempt from those laws. You don’t see any male #Hooter’s waitresses or female #Chippendale dancers. I applied to Chippendale. They rejected me because of my weight (300+ pounds), and because I couldn’t dance. Did I mention that I’m also handicapped? Talk about discrimination. They recommended I try for a job as a Clydesdale. I had better luck with Chips Ahoy but turned down their offer. They didn’t pay much, but it was all the cookies you could eat. SNL may have discriminated in hiring Zamata. Duh! Do you think? %A New Jersey man is suing the #NFL for pricing the average fan out of tickets for the Super Bowl. %He said that the NFL made only 1% of all tickets available to the public at face value. He is seeking millions of dollars in damages. Spoiler alert! We call that capitalism or the law of supply and demand or free enterprise. Guess what? Most consumers are also priced out of leer jets and mansions.
