Wednesday’s episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee tackles historical racism with the Lucas Brothers in this exclusive clip.
The segment takes the Lucas Brothers to the MET to learn why white supremacists often reference ancient Greek statues in their litany of racism. Turns out the common idea that the statues of ancient Greeks are all of white people is wrong.
As the official description states: Guest correspondents the Lucas Brothers take viewers back to antiquity to learn all about white history. But what if this so-called beginning of white history wasn’t so white after all? Join the Lucas Brothers as they explore the MET and talk to experts Marco Leona, Sarah E. Bond and Chenjerai Kumanyika to break down ancient myths and help viewers see the past in full color.
The video is a hilarious and insightful look at how history has been stripped of its color–literally and figuratively–and how giving color back to the past can put a dent in society’s racist beliefs.
Full Frontal airs on TBS at 10:30 P.M. ET.
