What do we know now?
Mike Yard is a regular. Tonight’s show is about the State Of the Union. We were invited to submit our questions about President Obama. Now I could have gone a different way with this and asked about the fact that African-Americans, who are wildly over represented in the less affluent demographics because of historic and persistent racial prejudice, have actually seen their economic position decline under the policies of this President, Obama, and that Police Violence against the African-American community has increased under his Administration and militarized Law Enforcement; but as I’ve indicated I think it does a disservice to The Nightly Show and Larry Wilmore to use a merely racial and tribal lens when watching. African-Americans are Americans. Their struggle is our struggle and class knows no race.
Besides, it’s too much research for midnight and I have other things to do with my life which include careful examination of the inside of my eyelids.
So instead I went with some things where the facts are undisputed-
How do you feel about Obama’s protection of torture, bank fraud, & indiscriminate surveilance, and his dozen+ new wars?
Would Larry have Bill Cosby on as a panelist? Hell yeah! And Mike Yard is actually funny-
Tonight’s panel is John Lovett, David Remnick, Amy Holmes, and Godfrey. Sorry about last night, now that I know where to look I’ll try to include it. Did I mention the Kinks?
