White people are holding back when it comes to discussing race on social media, so Jimmy O. Yang, Francisco Ramos and Milana Vayntrub list what else they avoid posting. (1:28)

On Monday, there was animportant new study released

by the Pew Research Center--

not to be confusedwith a pew research center.

Not to be confusedwith the Le Pew Research Center.

Not to be confused with thePew-Pew-Pew Research Center.

Pew! Pew! Pew!

Or the... P U Research Center.

Do not go in there.

The study is about howwhite people use the Internet,

as is evidenced by everythingI just showed you.

-(laughter)-And it turns out

the Internet's most prolificwriters of Facebook posts

that begin with, "Okay, warning.

This is goingto be a super-long post,"

are holding backon one important area-- race.

According to Pew,67% of white people won't post

about race online,as opposed to YouTube,

where 99% of white peoplehave posted

the "N" word under a videoof a child's birthday party.

Uh, it's a very interestingquestion, by the way.

Why aren't white peopletalking about race?

Why won't they talk about it?I mean, you know,

besides the factthat America has a terrible,

festering race problem

that white peoplewould rather ignore.

Says the white guy.

So, comedians,what's something else

white people won't post about?Jimmy.

wait to drink chardonnayand get drunk

-(laughter, applause)-HARDWICK: Yes! Exactly!
