Twin rallies at the South Carolina statehouse had “Nightly Show” host Larry Wilmore with one sentiment on Tuesday night: “I can’t believe this shit is still going on!”
“The Loyal Knights of the Klan and the Black Panthers clash at dueling rallies in South Carolina. The only way this could have gone worse? A duel between actual knights and panthers,” Wilmore said.
Wilmore tried to understand the “honorable intentions in supporting the flag” that the KKK members were supporting.
“For weeks now, I’ve been trying to make clear the hate associated with that flag. But there’s nothing clearer than a man holding the Confederate flag high while making ape noises at a crowd of black people,” Wilmore said.
