Help fight for racial equality in the US by supporting the NAACP!

Just in case you didn’t know, racism is still a serious issue in America. But in order to make that discussion relevant, we have to be increasingly creative. That’s why videos like this one from the Comedy Central sketch show Kay & Peele are invaluable. Sure, this skit will make you laugh, but it will also make you ponder the complicated racial paradigms that continue to persist, and more importantly, continue to thwart equality. Check it out, have a laugh, then feel inspired to have a discussion about race, or support the work of an organization like the NAACP.

RYOT NOTE: Videos like this are exactly what we need to be watching. Yeah, they’re hilarious, but they use comedy to discuss serious issues, like racism, for example. Beyond having frequent conversations about race, you can help lead the fight toward equality by supporting the NAACP, which has been fighting for the rights of black Americans for more than 100 years.
