Stephen Colbert Celebrates Stereotypes for the End of Black History Month
Last night on the Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert closed out Black History Month by offering a few commentaries on negative racial sterotyping, explaining that people of color should change their behavior if they didn't want to be reduced to stereotypes.
"Mexicans, you can seem less Mexican if you complain about all the Mexicans coming here to steal our jobs," he said.
He also challenged the idea that an individual can do much to buck against the racial stereotypes that have been hoisted onto them by others: "The quickest way to achieve racial equality is to send everyone to prison. Then we would all be black."
