Here are some of my favorite videos I watched this week:
How the Coronavirus Spreads: I knew most of the facts presented in this late-May video, but I still learned some more.
The News Industry is Being Destroyed: In this excerpt from his Netflix show, Hasan Minhaj delves into reasons why local newspapers are very important and why they’re at risk of elimination.
How to Deconstruct Racism: Recorded last summer, this is a TED Talk by Baratunde Thurston. He is amazing. I’ve known him for years.
What It’s Like to Be a Black Person in the U.S.: A self-described “southern journalist who is tired of a lack of common sense” uploads near-daily videos with opinions on everything. This video was created in September 2018 and already has over a million views.
Police Facts by John Oliver: The late-show host delves into the primary reasons why Black people are being murdered by police officers, and suggests ways to improve the status quo. NSFW.
Malcolm Corden on Holding the Bible: James’ father shows Donald Trump the proper ways to hold a Bible. Get ready to laugh.
Lockdown Interviews with Graham Norton: The best of the best from recent months, according to his production team. I agree.
True Colors: As Cyndi Lauper sang in her official music video of 1986, people are showing their true colors. Most of this is beautiful to me.
Roundabout: This is the classic scene from “National Lampoon’s European Vacation” when Clark Griswold and his family are stuck in the London roundabout and can’t get out. This always makes me laugh!
Crowds: The Lincoln Project is a Republican-backed pro-Biden political action committee. George Conway (yes, that Conway) is on the board. They constantly release videos such as this.
