Hollywood White Washing, How Is This Still a Thing? (NSFW)

Race has been a big issue as of late after all of the nominees for this year’s Academy Awards were all white people. This bring me to a show named Last Week Tonight With John Oliver. For those who don’t know, it is a show similar to the Daily Show where former Daily Show correspondent John Oliver takes a weekly satirical look at news, politics and current events. It’s writing is so smart and hilarious and has surpassed The Daily Show and The Colbert Report which I liked a little more when it was still on TV. Because the show is on HBO, there are no commercials and to compensate for that, they air comedy segments. One of those segments is called, “How is this still a thing?” where a voice explores how different things are still considered a thing. On yesterday’s show, one of these segments dealt with the issue of Hollywood white washing. Here it is in the hilarious, insightful video below.
