The Daily Show on the racism explosion


Jon Stewart devoted three segments to discuss the issue of racism that has suddenly flooded the media.

First up, he gave his take on the Donald Sterling story, since that seems to be the topic du jour and is the third time I am discussing it today.

Then he shifted over to provide an update on Cliven Bundy, the gift to comedy that keeps on giving. Why doesn’t one of his friends tell Bundy that his best course of action is to just keep quiet? But he seems so smitten with being in the public eye that he just keeps putting his foot in it over and over again.

Finally, Larry Wilmore comes back to have one of his periodic discussions with Stewart about the state of race relations in the US.
