  1. This idiot is trying (and failing miserably) to show that “white privilege” somehow exists and that reparations are somehow deserved by ANY race in America. But he’ll still be loved because he is a celebrity with an audience impressionable like 10-year-olds.

  2. How about paying some 'reparations' to all the Middle Class families that are paying outrageous health insurance premiums caused by the failed social experiment known as Obamacare?

  3. My ancestors never owned slaves. They came to the U.S. from Europe in the late 19th century, long after the end of the Civil War. So why should MY tax dollars have to go towards paying for reparations for African Americans? It's been more than 150 years – they've had more than enough time to catch up!

  4. White privilege? You mean having to deal with all the crime that the descendants of FREED slaves puts us through? Imagine if America simply buried the slaves, like every other country did when slavery ended? Who pays us?

  5. We had the reparation money, but then we had to use it to pay for the 1-2 billion dollars in damages, and injuries, from all the riots in 2020.

  6. YOU KNOW WHAT…ME AND MY TWIN SISTERS MOTHER WOULD CALL US OCTOROONS WHEN SHE WOULD GET ANGRY AT US. OCTOROONS ARE 1/8 WHITE. OUR PATERNAL GRANDPARENTS WERE WHITE EUROPEANS. WHEN I LOOK AT MY SKIN I CAN LITERALLY SEE GREEN VEINS. SO I FEEL LIKE IF ONE DROP OF BLACK BLOOD CLASSIFIED A PERSON AS BLACK BACK IN THE DAY….THEN WHAT DOES THE WHITE BLOOD CLASSIFY A PERSON AS…BECAUSE QUITE FRANKLY….WITH THE ONE DROP OF BLACK BLOOD RULE AND CLASSIFICATION….THEY ARE SUBTLY ACKNOWLEDGING THAT BLACK BLOOD IS THE STRONGEST OF THE TWO. THANK YOU.

  7. What about black people that owned slaves? Anthony Johnson ? First person, not first black person, first person ever to legally fight for the right to own slaves. He himself was indentured servitor, like the irish people, gained freedom and decided to own slaves. Until that point all black people and irish people were indentured servitors. It was Anthony johnson who made all indentured servitors into slaves. And what about the white slaves in Africa, is Africa going to pay reparations to white people?

  8. Trevor: What is to be said for the millions of white americans that you have a vast amount of privilege over despite your skin color? Because you are much more privileged and have a much larger voice than millions of Caucasians out there dying everyday in the streets with a government establishment hat doesnt care for them….and -in some ways- probably cares for them even less because their skin color cant be used as a rhetorical tool in your game of politics to sway public sentiment and win votes under the guise of moral superiority, generosity and pureness. You are a charlatan. The true color of privilege that exists is Green, and youre a shining example of that. Youve become part of the new evils we face, and unfortunately because of people like you and powerful politicians the common man black or white have a harder time facing them together.

  9. And this is how Racism manifests itself in the fabric of a society and always comes back around never going away. Just like the Jews were blamed by the Germans for their suffering and starvation and poverty. Hate in this country is growing. Trevor Noah does nothing to help the evils we face and only stokes the flames.

  10. I think poor white people should be demanding reparations from the billionaires who have killed their jobs by profiting from cheap foreign labor.
    I hope they bring it to the Republican congresspeople they voted for. See how it goes.

  11. I agree that there should be some form of reparations, but I'm not sure how it should be executed. A lot of black communities today are facing issues rooted in poverty caused by systematic racism like injustices from the War on Drugs, redlining, gentrification, etc. But throwing money at poverty doesn't work because giving an individual or a community a check doesn't fix the systematic problems in place, which means that wealth is not sustainable and will not grow over time. So I guess my question is, how can reparations be executed in a such way that it actually closes the wealth gap between African Americans and white Americans in the long term?

  12. Dude wants reparations for deindustrialization. This is what white privilege is: taking a recent setback of yours and comparing it to centuries of human rights violations, and calling it even.
