Former “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno lamented that “college
 kids” these days don’t understand what real racism is
 during an interview on “Late Night with Seth Myers”
 Thursday night.
Mr. Leno recalled an instance when a “Tonight Show” intern
 offered to pick up his lunch, but proceeded to accuse him of 
being racist when Mr. Leno said he didn’t like Mexican food,
 The Blaze reported Friday.
“College kids now are so politically correct. I mean, to the
 point where — I’ll give you an example, we had interns at
 the show, college interns. Like, the last year of the show,
 one of the interns comes and says, ‘Mr. Leno, I’m getting
 lunch. what do you want?’ I said, ‘I don’t know, where are
 you going?’ He said, ‘we’re getting Mexican.’ I said, ‘I don’t
 really like Mexican.’ He goes, ‘whoa, that’s kind of racist.’
 That’s not racist,” Mr. Leno said, The Blaze reported Friday.
