I’ve voiced my support for TYT in general as a net good. Thought of Cenk as someone working for good things, though sometimes kind of dense. Chalked the latter up to him being formerly a republican shaking off old conservative concepts. But this fucking floored me. He basically pulled a Megyn Kelly moment without missing a beat - learning nothing about why it was bad. If he just reflected on that for a minute, even if he wasn’t well informed, he’d have known to maybe let someone else explain it to him before going live (with clown shoes on) to declare brown face as “not a thing”. In light of other less egregious things he’s said, I think he’s extremely naive about the extent and how virulent racist/bigoted tropes in America are. Now I understand where his jingoistic tendencies stem from. He’s too hung up on the great American scam that we’re the best in spite of our problems and he can’t fathom how terrible it has been and can be.
