Muslim Comic Nails Something About White Culture That’s So Pervasive We’ve Stopped Seeing It

Sometimes it takes someone removed from a certain element of your culture to point out how weird it is.

Having a beer at a party has become so automatic for most of us, we don’t even think about it. Nazeem Hussain, however is Muslim, and has never drank, so he watches the rest of us get progressively stupider. His impression of how white people react when they he hear he doesn’t drink is priceless, and his thoughts on the whole “social lubricant” concept are worth thinking about the next time you’re at a party.
