#BLM: Wyatt Cenac’s Problem Areas on YouTube for Free, HBO

People are looking for resources to understand the root causes of the systemic racism exposed in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of police and the entertainment industries are obliging with some of the best anti-racism works so far.

After Just Mercy, Warner Bros has come forward to make the season one of comic Wyatt Cenac’s late-night show-Wyatt Cenac’s Problem Areas freely available on YouTube. The said season, which was streaming on HBO Max, deals with topics like police brutality and abuse of power in America with a touch of Cenac’s lighthearted comedy.

HBO has made all 10 episodes of the season free to stream on YouTube – no HBO Max subscription necessary.

Released in 2018, the first season of Cenac’s show remains relevant as it was back then. Instead of covering the news of the week, like its counterparts, this late-night show digs into the issues faced by Black America every day.

For instance, Episode 1 covers the 2016 murder of Philando Castile, a 32-year-old black man, who was shot dead by Minnesota police while he was with his partner and young daughter.

From the infrastructures facilitating these heartbreaking and oft-repeated instances of police brutality and abuse of power to disproportionate murders of people of colour by the police, the show touches on some serious topics.

The show is a great source of information on the realities going on, which also covers gun control, mental health, public education, and drugs in the first season.

The show takes all perspectives into account, from the community activists to politicians to police themselves. Cenac’s humor makes this rather heavy-hearted watch a digestible one. It is a great starting point for those only starting to understand where the massive protests ongoing in America are coming.

HBO’s show of solidarity with the Equal Justice Initiative and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund will further include a free selection of videos to be streamed online.
