Wanda Sykes on the Harry Reid/Obama Flap, race relations and MLK Day (video)
Hulu, video (10:42) from The Wanda Sykes Show.
Howie P.S.: In her opening monologue, Wanda comments on Harry Reid's word choice. In the next segment, Wanda presents readings from online discussions of race and then a celebrity guest panel covers Martin Luther King Day, Pat Robertson, etc. Rich Benjamin says "If MLK Were Around, He Wouldn't Care About Racial Brushfires in the Media -- He'd Be Talking About Poverty." Melissa Harris-Lacewell writes "How Barack Obama is like Martin Luther King, Jr." in The Nation. Reader Advisory: It's not all flowers and candy to either man.
