Bee is one of the only female late night hosts on TV right now, and Ramsey told BuzzFeed News she's excited, but a little stressed about the prospect of being one of the only black women in that world.

“That is an important and empowering thing for a lot of people who look like me and who are just excited to see someone be who they are in a world that doesn’t say locs are traditional and professional, or that black women can be awkward and weird and not fit into these stereotypical boxes.”

CORRECTION

If Ramsey's pilot gets picked up, she would not be the only black female late-night host: Robin Thede's BET show The Rundown With Robin Thede premieres in the fall. An earlier version of this post said she would potentially be the only black female late-night host.
