Stephen Colber’s Colbert Report came under fire for racism this week. Ultimately, the question is: where does satirizing racism end and racism begin?
It’s late, and I’m too tired to write anything well-reasoned, but I sweated over my own two tweets to the public debate last night, and I’ll also post a few tweets I found compelling in the #CancelColbert hashtag.
I like the Colbert Report. I find it offensive at times on a number of issues, but overall a very important voice at the level of fake news national politics. I don’t want to see it cancelled, but I think an apology is in order. I look forward to seeing if he can pull it off, in character.
And while we’re at it, back to his original point, the offensiveness of the term “Redskins.”
