One way to know when we have a legitimately serious problem in America is when the late night tv show hosts are all talking about it, and not just as a source for comedy.
Stephen Colbert joined the discussion regarding the recent outrageous killings of non-threatening and unarmed black men by police across the country. As usual, the moment that anyone speaks out against these sort of things, the apologist right-wing immediately interjects with their own terribly offensive trash, only proving the point.
One such comment was highlighted specifically by Stephen. You can see the capture of the message on Twitter below, where someone who I am sure is “totally not racist,” suggested committing mass vehicular homicide towards protesters who were stopping traffic.
Stephen made an absolutely fantastic point, as well. All the outrage over protests in the streets, some of which turned violent, is hypocritical, to say the least. Every conservative in America wishes these people would just protest calmly and respectfully… except we already tried that with Colin Kaepernick and it didn’t work. Not only did black men continue to get killed, but Kap’s also personally received death threats, again proving the protesters right.
He then turned to the new mastermind of American racism, Donald Trump. He pointed out the huge joke that was Trump’s recent “African American Concerns” town hall meeting, which could have just as well hung a sign outside the door that said “Whites Only.” The only black people that were there practically, were the few on the stage with Trump.
This was the same event where Trump told an audience full of white people he planned on reinstating the “Stop and Frisk” police that had already been deemed unconstitutional. He doesn’t seem to realize that when something is unconstitutional, you can’t do it.
Watch Stephen drop some hard truths about the last few days below:
