Larry Wilmore congratulated Arizona teens on Wednesday night’s episode of “The Nightly Show” for sort of censoring themselves when using T-shirts to spell out a racial slur.

The teens were taking a photo with a larger group of students, all wearing T-shirts which spell, “Best*You’ve*Ever Seen*Class*Of*2016.” Then a smaller group took a photo with the T-shirts spelling “NI**ER.”

“They decided to play a lifesize game of Words With Stupid Friends,” Wilmore said. “But, people, there’s not even an ‘I’ or a ‘G’ in the original message. That’s how committed these dumb-dumbs were committed to spelling out the n-word.”

Wilmore reminded the audience that Arizona is “a really racist state” that fought against Martin Luther King Jr. Day and passed the s0-called “Show me your papers” law or S.B. 1070.

“I’ve never seen anybody make such a commitment to using the n-word,” Wilmore added.
