Jessica Williams Explains Fear Goggles And The Michael Dunn Case

Here’s The Daily Show’s Jessica Williams to provide some new lessons for Black History Month, following the murder of Jordan Davis: some survival tips for black teens in a world full of armed, “chronically terrified white people.” You want comedy born of tragedy, she’s got it. Much better than just staring in helpless frustration.

Bonus points for the mike drop at the end, which takes some doing when she’s sitting at a desk and wearing a lavalier mic.

Also worth a look: Jon Stewart’s interview with Kevin Spacey about House of Cards — you’ll be delighted to know that while preparing to play a House Majority Whip, Spacey had the opportunity to follow Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy, and “he even invited me to a Whip Meeting.” Jon’s ad-lib is perfect.

    The thing is both of those pieces can be summed up with the phrase “Bad Actors” and for pretty much the same reasons…both Dunn and Congress are “Bad Actors” first in the sense of just being terrible at presenting any kind of basic human credibility, and second willingness to do actual harm to others for their own benefit…”If I could just kill one (fill in the blank)…”Sociopaths on parade

  • Shooting teenaged boys because you think they look like “thugs” is like raping teenaged girls because you think they’re dressed like “whores” and had it coming.

    I would love to see her with Key and Peele doing their Obama & Luther style, that would be one sharp pointy stick of a skit :)
