Don’t Let The Garb Distract You. The Bigotry Is Really About His Name.

Won’t someone end the H8 against people named Chris!

Upon reflection, The Chaser here encapsulates Sasha Baron Cohen’s humor in two minutes, without demeaning his unwitting costars or the audience.

     I was thinking the same thing, but this may be in Britain or Canada, where citizens have been disarmed.

    In my home state, he would be busted just for wearing the mask: there’s a post-Reconstruction  law that bans concealing your face in public. The intent was to make it harder for the Klan to maintain anonymity, but I have no doubt wandering around in a stocking mask  would get it applied to you no matter what your melanin content might be.
    Assuming, of course, some citizen didn’t jump to a justifiable conclusion and light you up.
