    The show said two of the cast members were complaining and I thought the only African American cast members were Jay and Kenan. If Kenan has no problem with it I'll be disappointed.

    Why do I have the feeling George W. Bush joined the Stonecutters, ate a mess of ribs, and used the Constitution as a napkin?

        That's a pretty crappy thing for Kenan to say. Thank you again for bringing it to my attention.

          ...that what the person being quoted actually SAID is in quotes.  Anything not in quotes is the interpretation of the interviewer.  And here's what they quote him on:

          "It's just a tough part of the business," Thompson says. "Like in auditions, they just never find ones that are ready."
          He's saying that the black female comediennes who have auditioned for SNL haven't had good auditions.  It's the author of the article transforming that into "a lack of quality black female comediennes."
