SNL decided to address an ongoing controversy over its lack of black female cast members head on last night in a cold open featuring host Kerry Washington and Reverend Al Sharpton. Washington played Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey in the skit.

As we reported yesterday, the nonprofit organization ColorofChange.org wrote an open letter to creator Lorne Michaels denouncing the lack of African-American women (none since the departure of Maya Rudolph in 2007) cast on the show.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP....

Was SNL's response appropriate? And can Kerry Washington please stay on?
