"No matter how on beat they seem during the “Electric Slide” or how good their blaccent may be, there is a reason not every white person can come to the proverbial Black cookout.

On Thursday, during the funeral for civil rights messiah John Lewis, former President Bill Clinton fixed his crime-bill-ass-mouth to say that the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee lost its way under Stokely Carmichael (who later changed his name to Kwame Ture).

Clinton started off strong, noting that Lewis’ posthumous op-ed in the New York Times was just like Lewis.

“He never lost heart. He fought the good fight, he kept the faith,” Clinton said, USA Today reports. “It is so fitting on the day of his service, he leaves us our marching orders: ‘Keep moving.’”*
