This W. Kamau Bell Bit Shows Why You Need to Educate Yourself on Racism

In the spirit of amplifying the voices that should be amplified today, we’re pointing to you to this bit by the fantastic comedian W. Kamau Bell from one of his past hours, Semi-Prominent Negro. You should watch/enjoy/learn from all of Kamau’s work (United Shades of America, Private School Negro), but this particular joke highlights the importance of people, particularly non-black people, on doing their homework and educating themselves on racism/anti-racism/white supremacy rather than depending on asking black people to do it for them. There is so much to know and there are so many resources.

Please watch it here. You can (and should) also listen to Semi-Prominent Negro in full on Spotify here.
