W. Kamau Bell is going to “explore” the Ku Klux Klan in his new series ‘United Shades of America’, according to the promotional clip posted on CNN’s website. The comedic “gadfly”, as the CNN caption describes him, will explore our country and “its various groups and subcultures.”
Exploring is what we do with tiny home communities and the Amish. These are nonconformist groups that have overstepped the boundaries of normalcy and in doing so, invented a real world for themselves that is altogether uncommon in day-to-day American life.
