Because America clearly needs some help figuring out what racism is and why it bothers people, "The Daily Show" brought in correspondents Jessica Williams, Jason Jones and Aasif Mandvi to determine: "Racist or Not Racist?"

But ... it's tough! In need of some impartial judges, "The Daily Show" introduced "Key & Peele's" Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who determined that Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen is racist (against white people) and Sarah Palin, who compared the national debt to slavery, is just plain stupid.
