File this under ‘self-hating white dudes’ for now, until we come up with a better name for the condition.
Right around the 30-second mark they both get to yuk it up about one of Anderson Cooper’s 80-year-old ancestors getting beaten to death by a slave.
He thinks it’s cool, edgy, and funny.
What if the Grandfather was protecting his Granddaughter from being raped by said rebellious “slave”? Would that be as funny? To his crowd, maybe even doubly so.
Can we name this level of racial self-loathing?
That’s all I want to do for now.
