With less than two months left before he departs as host of the Daily Show, Jon Stewart launched a new segment Monday night just for former Spokane NAACP head Rachel Dolezal, aptly titled: “Whaaaaaaaat!?”

Dolezal is Czech, Swedish, and German—a mix Stewart categorizes as “really fucking white.” After one Fox News anchor argues that racism must not be such a problem if a white woman has chosen to live as a black woman, Stewart declares: “If being black is such a sweet deal, why are millions of white people ignoring this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity?”
