The Gaping Racial Wound that will not heal. The depravity of violence in America
The violence in Charleston, South Carolina sparked plenty of responses and stirred feelings that are too familiar in recent years. The racial implications alone are depressing in 2015, but the violence involved is almost too much to bear. That’s where Jon Stewart ended up here in his final stretch hosting The Daily Show. Instead of a normal show with laughs and jokes, Stewart led off the program with a powerful five minute statement on the events in Charleston and declared that there would be “no jokes” on the show Thursday.
“I’ve got nothing for you,” Stewart told the audience before moving on to a powerful line of truth on the events of the day and its relation to current events. And there really are no words for it all. It’s a powerful message.
