Comedy Central’s Chocolate News, hosted by David Alan Grier and covering current events from the black perspective, will debut on Oct. 15.

Meanwhile, Brooklyn stand-up Elon James White has launched his own video news/podcast/commentary segment called This Week in Blackness. His first two episodes went online overnight. Here, in episode two, White talks about what’s going in Houston, where he might suspect more than a few black men are saying some variation of "Don’t tase me, bro." (Language NSFW)
