Aziz Ansari Called Out The Whiteness Of Late Night To Stephen Colbert

Aziz brought up Colbert's place in history as "the bajillionth white guy."


"That's pretty cool; we're both from South Carolina. Stephen is the first late-night host from South Carolina, and the bajillionth white guy."

At which point the conversation turned to diversity — and just how much Aziz's very presence was boosting CBS's stats.


"You've talked about not enough people of color, minorities represented on television," Colbert said. "Is having you on my show right now — does that count at all?"
