Colbert to Trump, “1Million to the charity of your choice for me to dip my balls in your mouth”

I sat down today to write a really serious post about racism and belonging (like Zerlina did) in light of Donald Trump’s “big announcement” yesterday. But its hard to engage with someone that makes it their business to annoy people or is a Known GOP Blowhard. His brand is to be a jerk–so I think the best reaction to Donald Trump’s bribe to Obama of 5Million dollars to a charity of his choice, is Stephen Colbert’s:

“Nothing would make me happier than to write this check,” said Colbert. “And nothing would make America happier than have something going into your mouth than coming out of it.”

Yep, that’s right. Stephen Colbert offered Trump 1Million dollars to the charity of his choice, if Trump will let Colbert dip his balls in his mouth. Talk about an indecent proposal!

This is what I like to call Serious Political Coverage.

I’ll save that really deep post about how racist it is to ask the President of the US for his college transcript for another day.

From Kuchibhotla to Kal Penn: How Hate Crimes Build Off Liberal Media

Yesterday, the New Yorker published a stirring article on Being Indian in Trump’s America, a rumination by Amitava Kumar on racial violence, hate crimes and the tensions that come with being South Asian in America. Around the same time, Indian American actor Kal Penn tweeted images of racist scripts offered to him at the beginning of his acting career. The two pieces, juxtaposed together, offer a handy depiction of hate: a dehumanization project that begins with media stereotyping and logically concludes in racist violence.

He asks her if they know he’s black. She answers, simply, smilingly, “no.”
