I love watching John Oliver – his show Last Week Tonight has won numerous Emmy awards, and he is so passionate about whatever the week’s topic is it’s awesome. He is funny, sincere, emotional and very informative.
I have been binge watching his show for the past three nights to catch up on them, and tonight’s show just hit me in the gut, as it obviously did for him as well.
It is a long YouTube video, so if you don’t want to watch all of it, I understand. But it is such an important video, and especially for the last three minutes of it. I had tears and I have a more clear understanding of what black people have gone through, are going through, and will continue to go through until something changes. I am putting a warning out now though – there is a lot of swearing in this. But oh so powerful. And if you don’t react strongly to this woman’s words, then I don’t know what to say. Because she is passionate, and honest, and angry. Rightfully so too.
