    I generally agree with J. Oliver on most matters, including this one. There are still many issues with rasism in both the US and the EU. There are many halfwits like that Sheriff, the former American POTUS and his family etc. However! Mr. Oliver, try being white in, for example, subsaharan Africa! I am speaking from experience as a white European male who has been places. I'd suggest you try that, and then you will see that the rasism in the USA is simply dwarfed by what you will be subjected to there. While in America and Europe the majority of the society will come to your defence whenever you are racially attacked, down there the society will not even bother to look for your bones in the jungle. So, yes, let's keep trying to improve ourselves. Let's remember however, that angry retorics of the kind you are sporting in this episode will only create more confrontation and division. Yes, I am a liberal. However, in this episode you made me begin to reconsider my liberal views.

    The worst part about what happened in Kenosha, WI (take it from someone who lives in Wisconsin) is that there were advertisements on the radio that would have a testimony from a "small business owner" and then a secondary message after that that would go say something like (might be paraphrased, because it's now april 2021 and it's been a while since I've heard the adverts) "Joe Biden is weak, and this will happen when he is leader. Vote Trump to prevent this from happening". I remember just sitting in my car before work listening to the advert and going "Biden isn't currently president, we don't know if he will be a weak or bad leader. This happened under Trump, this already happened."

      @Caleb Hicks peaceful protectors not protests. The issue is the police and the rioters are both a massive problem. Solving the rioters won't work, thats why the riots got so bad. Fixing police is the only real solution that works.

    • Caleb Hicks
      Caleb Hicks

      so people should just be allowed to go around doing near enough the same fucking thing as a reaction to those things?....terrorising the public and killing civilians? this is exactly what those assholes did, do you people even look into the actual facts on these matters there were whole news articles covering this, I can't remember now, the exact figure but a lot people died and many more injured, in those so called "peaceful" protests

    • Caleb Hicks

      did you even take the time to even look into the statistics? they didn't just smash up one or two shops in a few towns those fucks demolished entire areas over multiple states! hardly counts as a small minority of those "peaceful" Protesters.

    • ben taylor

      So police murder, theft of civil funds, planting evidence and terrorising the public, killing civilians and confiscating personal property is the action of an upstanding police service in your book? Yeah, okay

    most of the problems in the USA stem from allowing the rich to throw around their power in US politics. they need to change their system to specifically excluded the rich from politics, they don't need the protection of a government: they're rich. if they don't like the rules they can leave, they aren't actually necessary individuals for the country. Remove the middle class: the country falls, remove the lower class: the country falls But! Remove the Rich: and people would barely notice.

    Nice show, again shocking truth spiraling out of control in the USA. But you got one thing wrong here, and as a person of Germany, i mean it by saying: its not 1940, but still 2021 Germany. Discrimination against women (highest gender pay gap in eu), against foreigners (burning facilities), even against young people (young lives dont matter) and against old people, that are not rich (here we only care about the rich 60+ folks) is still a thing here right now. And because of this trust in the ellective system that has been destroyed, guess what parties people vote for, now? Jepp, fucking Nazis, welcome to Nazi Germany 2.0!

  • JimIBobIJones

    The problem is cultural and extends well beyond the police as the mainstreaming of white nationalism on the right shows. You can give people equal rights and equal protections on a technical and legal level, but that won't prevent continued institutional issues. Changing hearts and minds is a different and more difficult task than brining about equality before the law. This is especially daunting in the case of the police, where there are multiple forces at play. First is the institutional racism where the police see criminals as "the enemy" and where racial stereotyping leads black men to be much more likely seen as threats. What is especially worrying is that this perception seems to pervade ethnicity amongst the police officers themselves - a common trend among police shootings of unarmed black men and women is the involvement of officers from ethnic minorities. Take George Floyd's murder as an example, one of the four charged was a black officer and another was Asian. As oxymoronic as it is to say, police institutional racism is multi-ethnic. This makes it easy for the police themselves to see their culture and behaviour as non-racist even though the facts and figures are clearly disproportionate. The other is that in many jurisdictions the communities from which police officers are drawn from have had long histories of segregation - something that is still within living memory and was actually popular in many states. You therefore have to not only tackle the institutional racism in the police but also ensure that you tackle racism amongst the communities - many of which have been trained by the right wing media and populist politicians to see such attempts as "cancel culture".

    Well, let's see... Biden - a man about as creepy as Pennywise - who is showing strong signs of mental decline is president of the U.S. and the Vice-President is a dame of mixed race whose career was PUTTING NEGROS IN JAIL FOR POSSESSION OF DRUGS. Besides, if any of these tampon eaters had been paying attention Biden is just a watered-down Trump, which is why the Democratic Party, again, committed fraud against Bernie Sanders; because it's not remotely left wing, it's as right as a British car's steering wheel.
