WATCH: Larry Wilmore On What's Changed In the Year Since Ferguson -- And What Hasn't
Larry Wilmore marked the one-year anniversary of the shooting death of Michael Brown at the hands of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson with a bit of remorse and fatigue.
"Man, it's been a year already? It's amazing how time flies when you're in a constant state of panic about being shot by the cops." Wilmore lamented. The Nightly Show host went on to play clips of angry protestors, mistaking it for footage from last year.
"No, Larry. Play the footage from this year". Wilmore yelled at his off-camera producer.
But, as his producer noted, the clips were from Sunday night. A year on protestors in Ferguson were as angry as ever and while some reforms have been made to the police force, the harsh and arbitrary fines being leveled against Ferguson's black resistance are still very much a part of daily life -- including, sadly, fines for being too loud during protests against the abuse itself.
"Noise violations for a protest?" Wilmore asked indignantly. "That's like arresting the kids on 'So You Think You Can Dance' for thinking they can dance."
