For those out there who still believe preserving the Confederate flag means preserving a noble American tradition, Larry Wilmore is here to set the record straight.

Explaining that the Confederate was actually based on “the great truth that the Negro is not equal to the white man,” Wilmore on The Nightly Show brilliantly shreds any argument that this flag of hatred is worth preserving.

And then he drops a bomb: “In fact, because displaying the swastika is illegal across much of Europe, skinheads and neo-Nazis often adopt the Confederate flag in its place. It’s such a racist symbol that it does double duty as the backup racist symbol for another racist symbol!”
