Watch: Trevor Noah asked conservative host Tomi Lahren how Black people in the USA *should* air their grievances and she couldn’t come up with anything

Trevor Noah just conducted one of his most impressive interviews to date, with one of his most controversial guests. Tomi Lahren, a video host on Glenn Beck’s website The Blaze, stopped by the Daily Show for a conversation that spanned from the Black Lives Matter movement to illegal immigration, and the resulting interview is a must-watch for anyone seeking out reason.

In a blink of an eye a national hero can turn into enemy just because he decided to defend his opinion! And this opinion was not directed against any of these newly-haters. He just wanted to appeal to reason! He just wanted some equality for his brothers, to let them live freely in this country!

He is not a traitor, he is not giving up his country! He only wants some justice!

Colin Kaepernick donates $50,000 to Meals on Wheels

  • Colin Kaepernick isn’t done taking a stand for what he believes is right. 
  • After the White House unveiled a budget proposal calling for funding cuts that could hurt Meals on Wheels, the free-agent quarterback donated $50,000 to the cause.
  • The gift to Meals on Wheels, a national organization dedicated to fighting hunger and feelings of isolation among seniors, is the latest in a series of socially conscious donations made by the star athlete. 
  • Following his promise to kneel during “The Star-Spangled Banner” to call out police brutality in communities of color, Kaepernick also pledged to donate $1 million of his annual salary to charity.
  • Meals on Wheels thanked Kaepernick via Twitter on Tuesday. Read more (3/22/17 12:14 PM)

Colin Kaepernick donated his massive shoe collection to Bay Area homeless shelters

  • Long before his activism made him famous, Colin Kaepernick was known for something else: his massive shoe collection. 
  • Now, fresh off the football season, Kaepernick’s taken a huge step by donating tons of shoes to Bay Area homeless shelters.
  • It was so big at one point that he converted his garage into a shoe closet.
  • Kaepernick donated the shoes, along with clothes and books, to Bay Area homeless shelters and orphanages shortly after his season ended. Read more

Think about how much people hate Beyonce, Colin Kaepernick, or any other black celebrity who spoke out against racial injustice. They didn’t assault any police officers. They didn’t loot any businesses. They didn’t threaten to kill all white people. They didn’t do anything violent at all. They just did something that white people couldn’t ignore. And look at how much they’re hated, despite following racists’ demand to “protest peacefully”. They’ve even received death threats.

Celebrity campaign for Somalia has raised almost $2 million to relieve famine

  • A viral aid campaign led by actor Ben Stiller, Colin Kaepernick and others has raised nearly $2 million for famine-stricken Somalia in just five days.
  • The movement began after French social media celebrity Jérôme Jarre, concerned about a lack of media coverage surrounding the famine Somalia is currently experiencing, put out a call to action to his followers.
  • After figuring out that there is only one airline currently making commercial flights to Somalia — Turkish Airlines — Jarre set a seemingly impossible goal: What if, using the hashtag #TurkishAirlinesHelpSomalia, his fans could get the company to respond?
  • Soon Stiller and other social media influencers joined in, posting short videos on their respective platforms appealing to the airline to let the initiative use one of their cargo planes to deliver supplies.
  • To their surprise, the airline didn’t just accept — it offered to make multiple trips. Read more (3/21/17 11:40 AM)

People have given Trevor Noah a hard time ever since he took over The Daily Show, but he totally scored a huge win on last night’s show with Tomi Lahren from The Blaze. While she jabbered on at top speed and bitched about BLM and Colin Kaepernick, Trevor remained calm, collected, poised, and allowed her to hoist herself by her own ignorant petard. As I’ve seen some people point out on Twitter, I don’t think she may fully realize that Trevor is a biracial man from South Africa who had to be zealously protected by his mother because his birth actually violated apartheid laws. He could have easily been killed as a child due to his identity as biracial.

If you haven’t seen the full interview, I urge you to seek it out, it’s remarkable.
