>> larry: as you can see we have already designated kansas and missouri cray states for their absurd welfare policies. florida is cray cray for obvious reasons, right. and just monday we added alabama as a cray state for celebrating the confederacy on jefferson davis day. you can change to non-cray if you stop doing cray [beep]. it's so simple it's cray. remember that. except florida. you permanently cray cray. [cheers and applause] >> larry: alright. true is true. cray is cray. true is true. for now we tush our attention to the state of nebraska. what is going on? >> nebraska overriding the governor's veto to be the first conservative state in more than 40 years to abolish the death penalty. [cheers and applause] >> larry: now now calling nebraska conservative is well,
putting it a bit conservatively. this is a state that is 90% state white with a republican governor in favor of the death penalty and a 3-1 republican advantage in the straight legislature. how did this happen? i think so right here earnie chambers. it's not morgan freeman don't clap. you can clap for him, it's okay. [laughing] >> larry: no, he's fought against the death penalty since 1976. yes. he has done this 37 times and it was rejected the first 36. those are matumbo numbers. pop pop pop, pop pop. right. now here is the score card of the 37 times he pushed to kill the death penalty. this is the only third time one of the bills made it to the governor's desk. it was the first time he rounded up enough votes.
republican votes to overcome the governor's veto. now a straight boss mofo. [cheers and applause] >> larry: right. pretty bad. now of course there could be a referendum putting the issue to a state wide vote. nothing is official until the children consult who he grew up behind the road. thank you for getting that. now the death penalty in nebraska it's dead. dead. [cheers and applause] >> larry: it's dead. it's dead y'all. it's dead. dead. now here is the thing. keep it 100. the death penalty can be debated by reasonable people. i think the boston marathon should be put to death. and i'm fare. hold on. give me a minute. hold on. especially if it gives the super
bowl championships to the non cheating seahawks. that's all i'm saying. an unjust corrupt system rewarding tough on politicians and prosecutors. one that is right for abuse and mistakes. that's increasingly hard to defend. okay. so nebraska congratulations you not cray. well done. we will be right back. my cut hurt. mine hurt more. mine stopped hurting faster! neosporin plus pain relief starts relieving pain faster and kills more types of infectious bacteria. when you pick any 3 participating products get a free all better bag. available at walmart. when it comes to vaping, vuse

[cheers and applause] welcome back. i'm here with my panel. her new show "wong street journal" premieres in san francisco june 17th. comedian actress christina wong. and you can catch him at the atlanta improve june 4th-he sixth comedian jo koy. and my very funny comedian dan st. germain. okay. i want to talk about the controversy swirling yesterday over the movie "aloha." [laughing] >> well emma stone was casted as a half asian woman. maybe a quarter hawaiian or something. >> a quarter chinese. larry: okay. >> i think hawaiian is anything. filipino -- you eat spam you're
hawaiian. >> larry: exactly. people were pissed about it. what do you [beep] think. >> i think the movie being a bomb is already an i'm sorry. i don't know what else you do. you go to amy tan's house. peter gabriel in the background. how does that work. >> larry: it's so hard to get rolls for certain groups. especially asian women to get leading rolls. >> such a failure as a movie. we would have been happy to take a [beep] part. that's all we get anyways. the evolution of my acting career has been japanese school girls, nail salon ladies and if i'm lucky a newscaster. i would have been happy. >> larry: i love that newscasters are the safe roll. >> i'm usually just drifter with nothing to lose. >> did he match up. i'm sure a bunch of asian
actressed came in and they didn't do good. emma knocked it out of the park. >> larry: oh, emma. >> if you're an actor -- it's a devil's advocate. >> larry: emma stone is a star. of course. >> if she gets the part. if they gave it to an asian actress and did horribly. then the asian community would have said you should have casted emma stone. [laughing] she will take it for sure. what's wrong with you! >> is that how they -- >> yes. i'm being very racist. >> larry: you know exactly what would happen. >> if they casted an asian woman and the movie is doing what it's doing she would of been blamed for it you think the audience thinks it's a big deal? a lot of things the audience wants to see people who look like them and they want to see people they like. >> i think the only thing
weirder than emma stone playing a asia is bradley cooper playing a straight guy. >> oh no. >> i know when i have a bio pic that -- that some great white actress plays me. >> larry: emma stone. >> emma stone. >> for me it's brett butler. larry: brett butler. great choice. >> i want you to play my father. >> if larry gets a bio pic, i'm playing you. i will crush. [laughing] [ applause ] >> larry: very good. i like that. >> you're welcome by the way. larry: sometimes i think we should have comic book nerds judge this. they get angry over who is casted. they were mad there was a black actor for the torch. anyone should be the torch it should be a brother, right.
>> huh-uh. larry: it makes sense. i don't know why the nerds can't see that. >> you can't be a nerd and a racist. you can't be like a guy saying i can't believe a black person is playing the human torch and not know how to assemble a cross to put on someone's lawn. >> larry: no comic book nerds are not racist. they're just true to the truth. >> playing fire. you can be any color if you're playing fire. >> it's not like hey is he black? i'm out of here. >> larry: you ever heard the term colorblind casting. we're doing this casting colorblind. >> think that means everyone is white. everyone has a shot as a narrative. ever gets a shot at what it's like to be in love. get married, do things that
people do. >> larry: we're going to take the culture and just -- >> i'm third again ration chinese-american. my mom was born in san francisco and doesn't have an accent. shocker. i know. that means there go half the jokes i'm suppose to tell. >> i deal with racism in my family. i'm half white, half asian. that means my dad was in the military. a lot of soldiers fight for this country. my dad went dating. i'm his purple heart. no i'm serious. when i was growing up he would say stuff to me. he's my white dad. he would say you know i married your mom. i love chinese food. wait she says she's philippine oh, whatever rice is rice. >> i mean we have to deal with
it i have dealt with that growing up. i was half white, half asian in the 80s. you didn't see that back in the day. like these kids today everyone sees brown. like seeing the jabawakis perform i'm like these black guys can dance. they took the masks off i'm like they're sraoes vietnamese. then i turned asian. wow, they can dance, you're amazing. >> larry: it's never not ent
