It's against magician code to reveal a magic trick, but when the shitty magician is Fox news, you have a duty to let everyone know what they're up to.

Larry Wilmore did something he was not supposed to do. He did it on air and he’s a fool if he doesn’t think there will be repercussions. Wilmore, a magician himself, revealed how another magician does their magic tricks.
Okay, okay, before the brotherhood of magic men and wizardly women spear him with a wand, the magician he outed was Fox News and the trick was ‘convincing the American public that 1) cops are being killed in record numbers and 2) the #BlackLivesMatter movement is responsible for it.

The illusion sort of breaks down when you realize that 2015 is actually the lowest cop killings have been in 25 years and that #BlackLivesMatter has no intention of killing cops. Watch the entire clip for the rest of the racially cloaked magic to be revealed.
