Earlier this week “Daily Show” host and woke “comedian” Trevor Noah slammed American police saying policing in the United States comes from a “rotten tree.”
Trevor Noah comes from South Africa which has a homicide rate six times that of the US.
South Africa has a homicide rate of 33.97 compared to the US that has a homicide rate of 5.35.
Trevor Noah put out his thoughts on Twitter: “I think there are many people who are good on the police force. That’s why they join, because they want to do good. But I think [we don’t see them] because they themselves know that if they do something, that’s going against the system.”
“The system is more powerful than any individual. The system in policing is doing exactly what it’s meant to do in America. And that is to keep poor people in their place.”
“Who happens to be the most poor in America? Black people. You monetize them, you imprison them, which monetizes them again. It’s a system. It’s not broken. It’s working the way it’s designed to work.”
“Once you realise that, I feel like you get to a place where you go, ‘Oh, we’re not dealing with bad apples. We’re dealing with a rotten tree that happens to grow good apples.”
“We’re not dealing with bad apples, we’re dealing with a rotten tree.”
