Review: ‘Get Hard’ is the Antidote to Elite Racial Hysteria

Tweet your latest selfie from a #BlackLivesMatter protest. Go to Starbucks and order a "tall blonde, black" and engage your barista in a serious conversation about race. Once you're feeling suitably guilty--or adequately entitled--head over to your local movie theater, and go see Get Hard, the new comedy out Mar. 27 featuring Will Farrell and Kevin Hart--preferably after midnight, when the audience will be (ahem) more inclined to talk back to the screen.
