On a serious note, Michael Harriott discusses the lengths his mother went to in order to assure that he and his sisters saw themselves and other black people as fully human, rather that crude caricatures. Dr. Seuss' works are discussed, as one among many.
We should send Tucker Carlson to the moon and leave him there.

I tried watching Carlson videos once or twice. They're not nearly as witty or insightful or "owning" as his fans seem to think they are. Honestly I think Mumbles probably watches way more Tucker Carlson than I do. Pretty much everything I know about his antics I get secondhand, from haters posting about him on this forum.

He's a huge voice in the conservative circle. They've bragged about his ratings for years on Fox. There shouldn't be anything surprising about criticizing a voice many people listen to, should there?

Of all the Fox correspondents lampooned by Colbert and Myers, Carlson annoys me the most. He's like sand in your speedos.
