We All Can Learn from Sasheer Zamata’s debut on ‘SNL’

4.    Keep your dignity.  Don’t feel like you have to represent yourself in ways you aren’t comfortable.

5.    Learn from the best.  Male or female, black or white, identify the smartest people and learn what you can.

6.    Don’t hide your glow.  Sometimes we’re tempted to down play our talents to make someone else look better.

7.    Step up your game.  If your bosses tell you you’re doing enough, do more. Continue to get better.

8.    Enjoy the process. The real Oprah, not the one played by Kenan, says it isn’t failure if you enjoyed the process.  Sometimes we stress ourselves out so much with fear of failing that we don’t even realize all we’ve gained, the people we’ve met and the opportunities that our situation could lead to.

Like much of Black America, I’m rooting for Sasheer Zamata.  No one has to sell me on the fact that in order to be chosen out of the 25 women auditioned, she must be extremely talented.  I also know that being extremely talented isn’t always enough.

Pressure and politics can end a person’s career before they know what’s hit them. Sasheer Zamata’s victory should be based on knowing she’s doing the best job that she can do and how well she establishes herself as a brand that will stand, with or without SNL.

Once we recognize our own power and value, there’s no stopping us.  That’s a lesson I’m glad I learned.

  1. Hey guys R u tired of your daily 8 hours working ur boss is not happy wid u don’t get worried i have a amazing offer for u guys now u can earn up to $95/hr daily just at home u can also set ur own working hours For more detail just take a look on given link>>>>>>>

  2. By the way, a “Mulatto” a MULE not a human being. Who folks from South America use that insulting word liberally but you will not force it upon North American society.

  3. Maya is a black/biracial woman such as myself. We are not mulattos that is a racist slur from slavery and a term used only by Negro Hispanics who despise their African ancestry. There is no such race as “Mixed or Mulatto” an invented word.

  4. Maya Rudolph deceased mother (black)was the Late, Great Minnie Riperton. Society don’t care about mixed, biracial, or mulatto. Look at how the Republicans are treating President Obama.

  5. It’s been more than 6 years since SNL had a black woman in the cast. It’s been 6 years since SNL had Maya Rudolph in the cast. Maya Rudolph is not black. She’s mixed, biracial or mulatto.
