"Racial humor is important," says Amber Ruffin. "It can make you feel good."  

Reporter Arun Venugopal speaks frankly with comedienne Ruffin, a writer at Late Night with Seth Meyers and according to Jezebel, the first black woman to write for a late night network TV show. Ruffin talks about Key and Peele, Whoopi Goldberg, and the role of humor in redefining stereotypes.
