Reparations & White Privilege – Between the Scenes | The Daily Show



  • Michael Wilson 2 years ago

    There’s a subtle point here… If reparations are about repairing the prior injustice of slavery, then it needs to be a conversation between the US gov’t and descendants of US slaves, not just black americans. I’m not sure how those numbers shake out (how many black americans aren’t descended of slaves), but I’m pretty sure that Trevor himself wouldn’t qualify.

    This makes me so angry. Firstly Trevor is half white but somehow seems to forget this when talking about race. Secondly and more importantly, have you ever noticed that only black people tell black people that they can’t succeed because of their skin color. Seriously, how many white people have told you that you can’t succeed because you’re back and how many black people have said this to you? Maybe black people should tell each other that they can succeed and perhaps it will come true. Is the system in the US really stacked against you? If it was then wouldn’t the system also be stacked against Asians? The Asians success is down to them believing that if they work hard then they will do better regardless of their skin color. It is much easier to believe that you can’t succeed and therefore you don’t have to try when really you must work hard to achieve anything worthwhile.

    Well you should go to Africa Noah, and ask reparations from the families of Blacks that sold poor Blacks to Whites as Slaves, right? Start at the root of the problem. Whites PAYED Blacks for slaves. We whites HATED catching slaves, there were black folk willing to do it for compensation. Let’s deal with that first. Then reparations for whites that had slaves, Then balance that with what blacks got once they were freed. What they have today, thanks to whites buying their ancestors has to be worth something, right? If not, than what happened before, to their ancestors is worthless too. Remember: USA is Capitalism, not Socialism.
    Now go back to South Africa, help your fellow black men take shit from whites.

    Reprations is not about giving cash or land. So in summary, we’ve had 250 years of chattel racial slavery, followed by 100 years of racial terrorism and lynchings, sharecropping, black codes, Jim Crow, segregation, poll taxes, literacy tests, and the denial of voting rights. This was followed by another 50 years of a racially biased police and criminal justice system; red-lining; housing, lending, and job discrimination; voter suppression; white-flight; re-segregation; and a rapidly increasing wage and wealth gap.
    And frankly, as bad as this is, the injustice and crimes that America rendered upon our Native American population is actually far, far worse than any of this and certainly should be addressed as well.
    Reparations aren’t just about slavery itself (which again, didn’t technically end in 1868). It’s about all of this, all of these various issues of continued racial injustice and violence which have spanned more than 400 years.

    Are blacks demanding reparations from the Africans who sold them? Should white get reparations from arabs who enslaved them also?

    How ironic that this video was posted just before Jussie Smollett and his Black Privilege was revealed to the world.
