I still can’t get over how calm he was. Then I kept remembering as I watched through the interview that you know, he lived through apartheid. He’s used to white people just not understanding unless it’s posed through the framework of a joke and also that he knew that if you get over that level of calm that he (and actually so many black reporters and pundits) have/has maintained in the face of racism over the course of this election- it could be over for you. You could be jailed or dead. We’re not South Africa. We’re not in apartheid. But our system of behavior and societal re-enforced racism is not, you know, wholly different. I think that’s what I personally took away from the interview. As Noah has been saying on the show, we could learn a lot from South Africa in terms of what’s happening right now, especially with his segment on the way their president has behaved.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
