    Comedian W. Kamau Bell, host of CNN's United Shades of America discusses the online marketing skills of the KKK, his leisurely stroll through the neighborhood with one of the most notorious gangs in Chicago’s South Side, and what it’s like to open carry while black.  We debate the merits of Denzel Washington films, the phrase "All Lives Matter," and whether the term negro is actually racist.  Plus, a white nationalist who has a big problem with the idea of a black James Bond.
