The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore tries to subtlety diss Black women.
So far, we’ve been loving Larry Wilmore’s new late night show. From the guests to the subject matter, we’ve been thoroughly entertained. But during a recent segment on Black fatherhood, the show took a strange turn & sounded like it was dissing Black women.
Check out the segment & decide if they tried to low-key diss Black women here.
The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore featured a segment on Black fatherhood to discuss the cultural shift of the Black family in America. The panel consisted of Charles M. Blow of The New York Times, founder of the Center for Urban Families Joe Jones, Nightly Show correspondent Mike Yard and Common (Lordt, he looks good), all of which who gave the “uh-oh” face once Wilmore asked them if “Black women were bossy?”
Blow and Yard even had teacups in front of them. Based on their answers, Wilmore pulled out a number of teabags based on how real they kept it. The question was a part of Wilmore’s “Keep It 100” segment and was asked just based on an examination of the Black family dynamic, which according to statistics, 72 percent of Black children are born into out of wedlock families.
