Jon Stewart and Malala

Jon was particularly moving last night. He completely changed his tone in response to the shooting in South Carolina; he spoke off the cuff, straight to the camera, dead serious, about racism in America and the refusal to deal with it (though not about gun control, perhaps too self-evident). Then he spoke with Malala, an extraordinarily calm and wise young woman, and took comfort from her presence.

As good as television gets.

KEEPING IT REAL: Jon Stewart on Charleston Church Shooting! It's like Jon Stewart is the only white dude with a name who keeps it real and has the back of the wrong doings happening to black people.
