Suey Park and Stephen Colbert, the most thugged out 8th grade quiz you’ll ever see, and how salty is Kwaisi that his namesake is one-upping him.

Jimmy Fallon, Jon Stewart, and, perhaps surprisingly, Craig Ferguson, are among the latenight hosts wishing Stephen Colbert well on the heels of CBS’ announcement Thursday that Colbert would take the reins of its “Late Show” when David Letterman retires in 2015.
Each has a reason to be snarky. Colbert arguably got his start on Comedy Central’s “Daily Show,” which led to a berth on “Colbert Report.” Fallon, already grappling with Jimmy Kimmel at ABC, will be a direct competitor of Colbert’s new version of “The Late Show” when it launches next year. And Ferguson, who currently follows Letterman at 12:37 a.m. each morning on CBS, may have wanted to succeed him in the earlier spot.

What is the best way to work with white people, to get them on our side?
I don’t want them on our side.
You don’t want them on your side.
This is not reform, this is revolution.
So what do you want to see happen in your revolution?
I mean, it’s already happening I think. The revolution will not be an apocalypse, it’s gonna be a series of shifts in consciousness that result in actions that come about, and I think that like, at this point is really like, ride or die, in terms who’s in and who is out. I don’t play by appeasement politics, it is not about getting my oppressors to humanize me. And in that sense I reject the respectability politics, I reject being tone-policed, I think we need to do away with this idea that these structures are … that the prisons can undergo reform and somehow do less violence as a structure. But any example like that.
Wait, can you ask that question again, I got distracted real quick, there was a bird outside my window.
I was asking you about if you want white people — because they’re still the majority — if you want them to be allies in your goal to end racism?
Well, one, they won’t be the majority for long. And two, I don’t want any ally who is going to use my emotional labor with no guarantee of aiding my liberation. And so I feel like this question that white America asks of us, “Why can’t you be reasonable to get us to work with you?” And I keep saying, being reasonable has never worked in history. All other big racial justice movements, all of the big historical figures in racial justice were never reasonable. They were always painted as crazy during their time, and even afterwards now. And I think people forget that because they want to look at these things in the past and not the present, and I think people need time and space to understand the sickness of things that happen now, especially because they don’t understand digital lives and our generation.
