I’m not black.  And I’m not gay.

I’ve never had to ‘come out’ to my family or friends about my sexual orientation.  And I’ve never experienced what it’s like to be judged (negatively) based on the colour of my skin.

Which is all the more reason this hilarious video of Wanda Sykes is so clever.  It uses one form of oppression to educate about another, all the while illuminating & educating.

It’s relatable.  It’s funny.  It’s definitely worth the watch.
