The late-night “comedy” shows are trying to do their part to promote racial healing in the country, and the latest example is Jimmy Fallon’s interview with the author of “White Fragility,” who explained to him “how difficult we are”:
Author of “White Fragility” Dr. Robin DiAngelo was once told that if white people could accept feedback on their often unaware racist assumptions & behaviors it would be “revolutionary” #FallonAtHome pic.twitter.com/H2jEzUEZ9z

Greg Gutfeld saw it and thought Fallon might have needed a drink after the lecture:
my god this is painful. Fallon looks like he wants to dive into a hot tub full of rum and never return. https://t.co/s4NfTT2JgE

The video is now making the rounds:
I can tell Fallon is thinking:
Whoever booked this Wingnut on my show will be needing to learn to code tomorrow

I think he's thinking, "I need a hair of the dog if I've got to do this." He looks real rough. Real rough.

Everything about that video is incredible.
As a black man I find this kind of rhetoric demeaning. She has a low view of black people it’s crazy.

Without a doubt.
This is the most racist segment I've seen in the last two decades. "that's how big a a-holes we (white people) are!" https://t.co/B9bL9KdaxP

You're aware that you make a late night show hosted by a comedian, right? https://t.co/iANI2SRBDK

Is there such a thing as “late-night comedy” anymore?
