Two masters at the top of their game.
Stephen Colbert, great comedian, or the greatest comedian?
White privilege doesn't always have to be used for evil, and it doesn't always get used for evil by the "bad guys," as two famous practitioners respectively demonstrated last week. Master satirist Stephen Colbert took his white privilege out for a spin, ran into a ditch, and did the right thing. Political comic and talk-show host Bill Maher, on the other hand, abused his white liberal street cred to reinforce a toxic white privilege trope, the old "Well, how come they get to say it?" canard.
It's always entertaining to observe an egomaniac gasbag, who takes himself way too seriously, respond to jokes about his childish ideas.
I think we're in for a hell of a ride when September 8, 2015 rolls around.
