Comedian brings 'End of Racism' tour to PSU

Comedian Bryan “Preacher” Moss will bring his “Ending Racism” comedy and lecture tour to Pittsburg State University on Thursday, April 5. The free event, sponsored by the Student Activities Council and the Student Diversity Office, will take place at 7 p.m. in the Crimson and Gold Ballroom.

Moss, has appeared on “Comedy Central” and “Politically Incorrect,” and has written for “Saturday Night Live,” “The Damon Wayans Show” and the “George Lopez Show.”

Moss uses humor to focus on the status of civil rights in the U.S.

“If you think about it,” Moss told one interviewer, “to hate somebody takes very little creativity. It's one of the few things that can be self-sustaining and completely redundant. I have a soft spot for racists; it requires you to be dumb for a long time.

"Poverty and racism persist because there's a status quo," he said. "I talk about racism as a limitation. It affects everybody from the big things to the small things. Racism is the reason you never see any black people in Grey Poupon commercials. Somebody's driving by with a rolled-down window, the implication is it's a drive-by (shooting)."
