As the fallout from #OscarsSoWhite continues to unfold, a new video parodies the "reverse racism" accusations that faced "The Wiz Live!" in December. 

"The Whizz!" imagines what an all-White production of "The Wiz" might look like. The video comes from Fusion’s F-Comedy, and it features noted comedians including Guy Braunam ("Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell") and Kevin Avery ("Last Week Tonight with John Oliver") parodying racisty assumptions that Black performers are somehow privileged because of productions like "The Wiz Live!"
