"The Daily Show" correspondent Jessica Williams reveals that celebrity chef Paula Deen suffers not only from diabetes, but also from Type I or Type II racism. "Type I racism is inherent, it runs in families," said Williams. Type II is adult-onset racism, which you only develop "after years of clogging your brain veins with pure, saturated Dixie nostalgia."

"But don't worry," explains Williams. "These days, racism is rarely fatal depending on who you express it in front of."
