Roland Martin: Comedians Are Becoming an Endangered Species

America, I’m sick of you.

I’m sick and tired of your scared, whiny, bullshit fake rage and your pompous-ass attitude.

I’m sick of weakness. I’m sick of wimps. I’m sick and tired of your soft, weak-kneed, oh-I’m-so-offended response to anything that happens today that is quickly turned into an outrage on social media and followed up by the media as if it’s the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Even my man Jesus will say, “Y’all really need to chill. Drink some of this water I turned into wine and stop whining!”

Not even 24 hours after Trevor Noah was tapped on the shoulder by Comedy Central execs to replace the legendary Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show, the whiners-in-chief were out in full force, demanding he apologize and show contrition for some five-year-old tweets. Seriously. The dude sent some tweets out when he was 26, and he’s being raked over the coals like he plagiarized a Pulitzer Prize-winning series (Janet Cooke) or lied about being there when an associate of Lee Harvey Oswald killed himself (Bill O’Reilly).
