Returning to work after Thanksgiving weekend, The Daily Show had a serious topic to cover—another mass shooting.

Following the attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado, Trevor Noah broke down several of the talking points that circulated in the media. Did the shooter qualify as a domestic terrorist? What was Ted Cruz thinking when he described the attacker as a “transgendered leftist activist“? But really, the most important question was this: Is it fair to stereotype white Christian men as the typical perpetrators of this kind of crime?

Enter Jordan Klepper, The Daily Show‘s token white male correspondent, in a segment that perfectly skewered the way some terror attacks result in racial profiling.

Yes, it’s hard out there for white, Christian men.
