On last night's The Nightly Show, Larry Wilmore points out that something is missing from Bill O'Reilly's panel about race relations in this country: anyone who isn't white. Wilmore took it upon himself to correct the oversight.

Bill O'Reilly may not believe our country has systemic race issues but he is at least willing to bring people with dissenting opinions on his show to have a frank discussion on race relations. The problem, though, is he only invited two white-as-all-hell women to have this debate. Maybe no black people were available? Not even an Asian person or anyone who could speak to the minority experience in our country?

Well, thank goodness for Larry Wilmore who recognized this severe oversight and did one of the bravest things I’ve ever seen on television. Wilmore invited himself onto Bill O'Reilly’s panel about race.
To get you revved up to join the debate, I’ll let you know that when reminded that slavery was a part of this country’s history, O'Reilly eloquently responds, “so what?”
