“What a week to be senior black correspondent,” Larry Wilmore said last night after Jon Stewart had his way with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling in the first segment of The Daily Show.
Now it was Wilmore’s turn and he did not pull any punches. He attempted to help Stewart understand why white people seem so angry about minorities these days, starting with Bundy. “I want to tell Cliven Bundy one thing I know about ‘the Negro,'” Wilmore said. “Our two choices in life aren’t between picking cotton and picking up welfare checks. The president of the United States is black, so fuck you!”
Later, he took on Sterling, asking, “Magic Johnson isn’t good enough to be seen with your mixed-race mistress? A man so universally respected even HIV doesn’t want to bring him down!” As for the idea that he’s “dating” a woman of color, Wilmore said he’s really just a “sugar bigot.”
