My fave comedian, Hari Kondabolu, has a new album coming out, Waiting for 2042 (i.e., the year that, by most estimates, there will be more people of color in the U.S. than white people). And if this teaser is any indication, it is gonna be exactly more of what I love: dark, feminist, social justice-y, and truly hilarious commentary on life in this weird place we both call home.
In this clip, Hari compares being obsessed with race in America to being obsessed with swimming while you’re drowning – genius. So next time you’re injecting much-needed racial justice analysis into your feminism, and some clueless person can’t understand why you’re being “so divisive,” I encourage you to pass this along.
If someone could post a transcript in the comments, I’d be eternally grateful!
Verónica just wants to be Hari Kondabolu’s BFF. Hit me up boo!
