I saw this video some time ago. I don't think I put it up on SupportForTheShort, but it was put on Youtube by the Late Show itself. The part about short people was only part of the comedy segment but The Late Show labeled it as if that was what the entire segment was about. The comedian is like other short-statured comedians in that he knows he can use his short-stature to get laughs - it's not hard for these short guys to figure out. They know that they can get laughs this way, and it's a form of individualism. He doesn't care that he's doing any other short man damage, all he cares about is himself and his $$$. You know, when I hear Black comedians talk about Black stereotypes and it's usually done in a spirit of sarcasm, where it's understood that the stereotypes of Blacks depicted are unfair. There's no such understanding here. This guy is doing what's best for him and no one else. This is the problem in a nutshell. Oh! It seems like I can't take a joke, it's all in good fun, well, this stuff is going to continue I'm sorry to say, unless and until other short people can get their heads out of the sand and call these people out for these things.

Typical subservient bootlicker. In his jokes, he only victimizes short men. The women who set the stage for males wanting to be taller get a pass and the talls who bathe in their own believed superiority get a pass as well. To these Garmins, absolutely no one who disparages them will ever land in the crosshairs because they desperately want to prove that they won't step out of line. These clowns won't use the stage as a means to point-out hypocrisy or to flip the script; They'd much rather soothe the audience by showing that they know their role and won't make anyone uncomfortable for negative sentiments they have about short men. This is nothing more than a self-loathing form of hospitality.
