Truth-telling from Key & Peele

I watched this video, expecting a cathartic laugh at the stupidity of white racism.

I received nothing of the kind.

What I was left with was an overwhelming sadness that in 2015 a satirical piece like this still needs to be made. Left with a sadness that for all the noted advancements since the 1950s, it seems as if we're either stuck or regressing in race relations.

This is not how it was supposed to be. But it was also a fantasy to think that a 400-year system of racism and oppression would be lifted in a few short decades, when so many white people never acknowledged any injustice.

Watch this. You'll laugh at first. And then the pit of your stomach will empty at the realization of the dark truth it reveals.
