Not only are liberals destroying comedy, they also clearly do not know America history.

Comedy Central’s new host for the Daily Show, Trevor Noah, told Rolling Stone magazine in an interview this month that racial segregation is basically as big of a problem today as it was back in the 1950’s.
The 31-year-old took time away from preparing to debut his version of The Daily Show this week to have a conversation with Rolling Stone about what the political satire show will look like without longtime host Jon Stewart.
During the interview, the South African-born comedian said the show’s new era will launch Sept. 28 with more diverse writers and correspondents, and will be more focused on social media, while also remaining true to fan expectations of the Comedy Central institution.
When asked by Rolling Stone if acts of “racism” and “racist police violence” help feed a narrative that America is a white-supremacist nation, Noah said America still has a long way to go.
“I wouldn’t say America is a white-supremacist country, but I believe America suffers from a level of institutionalized racial segregation,” said the Johannesburg native. “And the effect of that is very similar to South Africa: It’s difficult to remedy that instantly.
“If you look at the legacy of slavery, if you look at the legacy of oppression…I mean even if you just look at women’s rights, take a step away from racial issues: Society has a long way to go in terms of getting women equal pay, equal recognition in the workplace, and so on,” said Noah.
Basically, Noah knows nothing about the fact that segregation has been all-out abolished in America for decades now. Nice try to drum up some racial division Noah. Better luck next time.
