On Colbert’s ‘The Word’ segment for Thursday, Stephen demonstrates a pretty decent understanding of white privilege.

    I thought it was Stephen (the ultimate proof of Colbert’s frogness!) but man that was a hilarious ‘word’.

    And we should send all the ants back to Antartica!

        As an aside I am fairly certain that had a Korean-American or Chinese-American SC Judge been on the bench during the Internment, he (although if we are going for historical counterfactuals I’ll make it a ‘she’) would have voted for the Internment and written ‘fuck those Japanese motherfuckers’ in the decision brief. Just sayin ;).

    “If you’re Sonia Sotomayor, everything that happened in your life should be invisible.” That’s actually totally brilliant.

      Yeah, I agree. This is more than funny. It’s really really smart.
