White at the Museum

In a segment titled “White at the Museum” aired yesterday (April 3) on Samantha Bee’s satirical program on TBS, Full Frontal, the Lucas Brothers respond in a light-hearted way to white nationalists’s use of Greek and Roman statues in their propaganda as a proof of the superiority of white culture. But if they end up watching this episode, alt-righters would be disappointed to learn that the whiteness of their beloved statues is but a myth. https://hyperallergic.com/493470/a-satirical-take-on-the-whiteness-of-classical-sculpture/

Features Sarah Bond, Assistant Professor in Classics at the University of Iowa, and Assistant Professor Chenjerai Kumanyika from Rutgers University, researcher, journalist, an artist, who joined in on the fun of destructing the myth of whiteness in antiquity.

2. Oh, I hope that you can watch later.

The museum tour is funny as well as educational. Samantha Bee has a good team on the case.
