Catch Up On Ferguson With 15 Minutes of John Oliver

[TRIGGER WARNING: POLICE BRUTALITY, GUN VIOLENCE, RACISM, HOMICIDE]

If digging through my scattered and ranty (not sorry) posts about Ferguson is too hard (don't blame you it if is too hard even though I'm not sorry about it), or you just need some humor to get through it, here's 15 minutes of John Oliver going through most of the important stuff while being hilarious.

I also want to point out that he's clearly angry in this video but no one's going to post on Reddit about how he shouldn't be or quote historical figures that they know nothing about at him. AHEM.

There are a couple things in this video that are problematic. He engages in the "how is this happening in the US" trope, and there's a #NotAllCops bit. But it's pretty good for prime time TV. The best part is at the end.



I wish these videos would fit in the frame but whatever.
