Larry Wilmore on Black History Month

Larry Wilmore is not a fan of BHM. At least not in his comedy routine. I cracked up when I saw his "I'd Rather We Got Casinos" bit on The Daily Show (he's the "senior black correspondent," which was even funnier when he was the only black correspondent). Now it's a book. Wilmore also writes for The Office and was the character of Mr. Brown during that show's hilarious "Diversity Day" episode.

He's irreverent about BHM, and uses humor to ask an important question: what does BHM really do for us, black people and the country?
