Why are we posting this inspired riff from Stephen Colbert, mocking Brad Paisley’s clumsy/stupid racism in a song called “Accidental Racist”?
Because at the end of the bit, Colbert sings a country-homophobic song and is joined on stage by Alan Cumming, a gay artist, in duet.
And how does it all end? Colbert sings:
Now that gay is fine
Let’s fix Palestine.
To which Cumming responds:
Two state solution, baby.
Don’t know about the solution. But the sketch speaks to the purpose of our site. This issue is the urgent moral question of our time.
