"Saturday Night Live" has added two black female writers shortly after hiring its first black female cast member in years amid criticism that the comedy sketch show lacked diversity.
"The Maoist temptation was part radical chic, part revolutionary tourism, part orientalism. It drew upon a deep-seated discontent with the corruption of Western society as well as the illusion of a radiant utopian future. It was also heavily infused with bourgeois self-hatred," writes Jeremy Jennings in the October issue of Standpoint.
Jones, an actress and stand-up comedian, has written for and appeared on "Def Comedy Jam" and "1st Amendment Stand Up."
