Robin Thede, Mike Yard, and Holly Walker Weigh in on Rachel Dolezal on ‘The Nightly Show’

During last night’s Nightly Show, Larry Wilmore kicked off a debate about the recent headlines made by former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, who went on the Today show this morning to announce that she identifies as black despite the fact that both of her parents are white. Wilmore wanted to get some more insight on the news from the black community, so he reached out to “Black Emergency Technician” Robin Thede, the very tolerant and pro-“path to black citizenship” Mike Yard, and “White Black Woman Hunter” Holly Walker for a range of reactions to the Dolezal news. Walker, being a dedicated conspiracy theorist, doesn’t end without giving a dire warning to the others: “Fake black people are everywhere, Larry. I’ve been hunting them my whole adult life. I call them incognegroes … and Rachel Dolezal is just the tip of the incognegro iceberg.”
