Must See: Stephen Colbert Gets an Emergency Oppressed White Man Alert


It’s important that we women and minorities check our privilege every once and awhile. While we’re all living the good life over on Easy Street, there’s an entire demographic — the American white male — that’s suffering from the wage gap (it’s hard being paid more than everyone else), racial profiling (do you know how invisible you feel when no one follows you around a store because they suspect you of stealing based only on your skin color?), the pressures that come with ruling society (heavy hangs the head…) and a whole mess of other social issues.

On last night’s Colbert Report, Stephen’s broadcast was interrupted by a very serious Oppressed White Male Alert. This distress signal came all the way from the opposite side of the country where San Diego mayor Bob Filner is currently facing a multitude of sexual harassment charges. Won’t anyone stand up for this wealthy, politically powerful creep? Always there to give a voice to already-loud-voice-havers, Stephen is up for the job.
