We love satire! We have acknowledged this before. The Daily Show and Jon Stewart are great examples of how satire can capture large amounts of people and get a message across. Sometimes though, Jon Stewart excuses himself from his comedy and acknowledges when something just needs to be dealt with seriously, without humor. The recent terrorist attack in Charleston, South Carolina by an American was one of those moments.
We have a lot of obstacles in our country where positive social change is needed. Thank you Jon Stewart for acknowledging this. We will miss you when you depart.
We also love Elite Daily! John Haltiwanger published a fantastic article on white privilege in the shadows of the Charleston tragedy. The article does an excellent job of using one of the victims to illustrate how he is reminded of white privilege. He also references Jon Stewart.
