    9:24 In NYC many cab drivers are undercover police officers. I had a similar experience. I left a club on the Lower East Side and got inside a cab waiting at the curb. I was just going crosstown to Bleeker Street. For what would've been a five minute/five dollar ride, the cab driver yelled out "I'm not going to Brooklyn!" and drove me to the Ninth Precinct on 5th Street. He got out the cab and went to talk to some uniform officers until I got out and walked home. I think that was worse than all the other times cabs didn't stop for me put together.

      @phanatic215 If a political candidate is obviously racist, all the people who voted for that guy and put him in power are guilty. I know that's easier to believe that one guy is the reason that the society is in this bad shape, but be realistic and see the hard truth: half of the population is close minded and when they see a person that's different from them, they reject any contact from the start.

    Um........England was one of the first countries to ban and outlaw slavery around 1803'ish!! (I think France was first in late 1700's) even setting up the west Africa squadron (naval force) to blockade and intercept any British ships illegally carrying slaves. Why does trump keep coming up, btw black lives matter started in 2014 (under Obama)

      @I am a genius and proudly black I think you need to brush up on your facts a bit too. While you know your history, you bombed your current events. There was no protesting "demanding the arrest" of the officer that killed Floyd. He was arrestedv& charged quickly. *Everyone* condemned what happened to Floyd...even Trump. Yet protests & riots & arson & looting were initiated *anyway* & continued. Which gave the impression that justice was not the imperative. That it didn't matter that the world was in their side. It hampered the objective

      Haha. It is funny yet concerning because you are actually cherry picking the facts to suit your own narrative. (FYI: 1. France abolished slavery TWICE. First in 1794 then reinstated it in 1802 then abolished it in 1848. Both of which, were the result of slave revolts occuring within its empire. 2.England abolished importation of slaves in 1807 but kept its institutions alive until 1833.) England and France abolished slaves due to the decline of its profitability not for ethical reasons and here you are trying to absolve these countries from the crimes they committed against humanity as if they did them a favor in doing so. The scramble of Africa also validates my point even further that they did this for their enrichment and self preservation. And lastly, it is true that the blacklivesmatter movement was found under the Obama administration but the murder of George Floyd occurred under Trump's administration and he seemingly did nothing about it, except tweeting a tweet written 'law and order' which was intended to intimidate the protesters who were calling for the officer who killed George floyd to be arrested. Your comment made you seem ignorant and well... misinformed. CHECK YOUR SOURCES.

      Complicated isn't it. I intended to reply: I think it shows growth. I always warn my daughters- you're not going to believe this, but you are gonna laugh at this. Every time, I was ready to KILL my brother, eventually I find myself laughing at whatever it was. So being able to laugh, to me, does show growth- and acceptance. But should we ever hit a point of "acceptance" when we are talking about racism. And my brother and I love each other- so we can laugh at when he gave me 6 stitches. White people, not so much. I don't know. I think about these things alot. As a biracial woman, as a mother, as a civil rights advocate. I try to wrap my head around slavery, such an odd relationship even back then- to have people in your home that you neither like nor trust, yet they have access to everything and everyone you hold dear, and those people hate you with a passion- but God forbid you clean your own house or pay a cook. All these things hold true for the white woman, to some degree a slave, herself, standing by as her husband does everything from rape to fall in live with slave women. She watches her husband's children grow, watches them multiply in number. After the Civil War, many plantation owners found themselves dependent on the generosity of their former slaves, who were naturally more resourceful. And these slaves returned to their former masters, with food, water, etc, or to protect the women left vulnerable. Is this loyalty, genuine affection, history's first demonstration of Stockholm Syndrome? Our relationship with white people has always been a complex one. I wish I knew how many centuries it will take to normalize.

    I made it about 6 mins in then had to stop, but I'm not black. There is certainly racism out there. I have met many, but if all you watch is cnn and msnbc then your going to think everyone is racist. When I drive into the big city I live around, the lawns are not even mowed. Is that because of white people? No it isn't. Get off the couch and do something and everybody will respect you.

      @Landon Comella because this is about black comedians. You want white comedians go find a video for one. This is ours, for us, and it's hilarious! White people hear or see black and go red. Then the whataboutism kicks in. Geez we have our own comedy and what's funny to us just mind yours

    Trump made the black unemployment rate at its lowest ever in US history, it’s better to have a president that creates an economy and jobs that give you the opportunity to be successful and empowered than to have democrats treating you like you’re too stupid to succeed while killing your jobs and trying to make you their slaves with reliance on government assistance and doing nothing but fueling racial tension. Trump wanted Americans to be successful and self sufficient, that’s why black unemployment was at its lowest. Black people were being hired, jobs were available for every level of qualification from minimum wage to high level professional. Black people were in positions to be able to start their own businesses. Democrats use black people, they push racism and they try to cripple black Americans and communities by killing jobs and business then putting black people in desperate situations so they are reliant on government assistance. Democrat politicians predate and use black people to get themselves into office, then they abandon them, let their communities go to ruin, and get rich from their special interest corporate and foreign relationships. They use black voters as stepping stones for themselves. Why is Obama a multimillionaire after becoming president? Talking tens of millions plus multimillion properties around the world. When he left office and while he was president what did your bank account, bills, assets, career look like? Did it change? Don’t buy into these politicians and media that use you and view you as stupid and easily manipulated. You’re strong enough and smart enough to see through it and decide on what will be best for you rather than what they tell you what is best for you. Prime example is Biden saying, “you’re not black if you don’t vote for me...” that’s Obama’s VP. Democrats don’t give a shit about you or anyone else.

      @Jake Lee first of all, I want to thank you for continuing this conversation with me. I think it’s a really multifaceted subject with many ethical and controversial topics, and I appreciate the passion and knowledge you’re bringing to the table. As to the point of Asian Americans facing discrimination: I don’t doubt that it’s difficult for Asian Americans to adjust to living in America. My mother immigrated here when she was seven; she vividly remembers the experience of being disoriented in a new country with a different language and living with very little money to spare. Those experiences of Asian immigrants are valid. They do face many hardships, and they have faced much discrimination throughout America’s history (the Chinese Exclusion Act, Japanese internment camps, the “Red Scares” as you mentioned) However, you cannot tell me that they have experienced racism and discrimination to the same extent or to greater extent than African Americans in America. And you certainly cannot prove that Asian Americans today are discriminated against MORE than African Americans. Because it’s apples to oranges; it is morally irresponsible to distract from the effort to save Black lives (actual human lives that are threatened today!) and to instead push for Asians to have equal access to jobs or “education” (aka Harvard - in reference to Harvard’s affirmative action case, which I do think is bogus. Affirmative action does not harm Asians or whites. The percentage of Asians enrolled in Harvard is already greater than the percentage of Asians in the US. You can’t tell me that’s discrimination. Black people and Hispanic + Latino people are *not* underqualified for these jobs or spots in colleges; they are not simply chosen to fulfill a quota. What will it take to prove to you that they deserve their spot/their opportunities?) I can’t help but reiterate that Black Americans were actually enslaved by whites in this country. For a very very long time. They were viewed as subhuman, as animals. (Not that Asians haven’t been dehumanized too. And Jews. And the Irish. But the propaganda used to dehumanize Black folks was used for so long and it was so commonplace that it is still affecting American culture today (i.e. using blackface, false reports “proving” that Blacks are not as intelligent as whites, the list goes on)).And that intense racism has permeated institutions, laws, and American culture to this day. You mentioned that it is problematic for me to believe that America is inherently racist but I disagree. I think this country was founded by racist people on racist principles; the very foundation of our government and society was built upon racism. And so, this fight for Black lives, this fight for reparations, and this fight against racism *is* a long overdue overhaul, and it is absolutely necessary. And to say this does not minimize the Civil Rights Movement and the work that has been done to gain equal rights for Black Americans-if anything, this statement that Amerikkka is inherently racist echoes the beliefs and teachings of some of the greatest Black revolutionaries. Yes, America has made a lot of progress on some racial disparities. But that shouldn’t mean we should settle now and accept the level of racism we see today. We should not accept that UNARMED Black people and children are being killed for no good reason. Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tamil Rice. White people are still automatically seeing Black folks as dangerous criminals, and that needs to be addressed - especially when they are the police officers charged with protecting everyone. We should not accept that POISONOUS industrial facilities are concentrated in neighborhoods of color. Poor air quality and an high levels of pollution create greater risk of asthma and other physical conditions in Black people living in these neighborhoods, especially children. Environmental racism is a real issue that is occurring today. We should not accept GLARING disparities in education. There are still school systems where a school in a poorer neighborhood will receive funding proportionate to the income level of its surrounding neighborhood and as a result, students in that neighborhood receive poorer education and few resources. This creates a roadblock to higher education, thus preventing Black youth from accessing high-paying jobs that require college degrees, thus forcing Black people into blue collar jobs and enforcing this cycle of poverty. Bottom line: Asian Americans and many other minorities have faced awful discrimination and hardships throughout America’s history and in recent times. However, Black Americans have endured racism like no other, racism that has permeated our society so thoroughly that we still see it taking their lives or destroying the quality of their lives today. And that is why I refuse to take up space to demand reparations for Asian Americans right now. This is the opportune moment to continue the conversation on race and how America has treated and is treating Black lives. I will not be the one to take the momentum away from that movement. I will say that by supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and by fighting alongside them and other minorities for justice and equal rights, we will be able to uplift the call for equal treatment of Asian Americans at its opportune time.

      @Jake Lee You’re right, I haven’t experienced a lot of life yet, and I live in a pretty liberal city, so I won’t face a lot of the racism or discrimination that Asians do face elsewhere. But I do feel the squeeze of the model minority myth, and I do work my ass off every day as a student to stand out. I’m applying to colleges and scholarships this year, and I definitely see how affirmative action might seem like it’s hurting Asians (although I don’t think Asian students should have won the Harvard Affirmative Action case... I can speak more on that later if you want) but when comparing the discrimination against Asians to the discrimination against Hispanics, Latinx, and Black folks (which, first of all, we shouldn’t be comparing suffering? it’s not a contest to see who faces more racism?) I don’t see Asian Americans facing the same level of risks and hardships. That doesn’t mean I don’t think Asians deserve the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. That just means that when Black folks are targeted by police every day and everywhere, when their neighborhoods have less access to healthy foods, when industrial facilities settle in their communities to poison their air, when they receive poor education because school funding is proportionate to neighborhood wealth, and when they can’t get out of the cycle of crime and poverty because of that poor education and lack of opportunity, they are facing active discrimination that is a lot worse than what Asian Americans are dealing with. Again, Asian Americans do deal with discrimination, and that discrimination can be similar or different than what African Americans face. That’s valid. And you’re right, it’s not our fault we weren’t enslaved. But that does mean that when a Black person is killed by a police officer and Black people demand to be treated fairly, it’s not our place to say “Wait I want fair treatment too!” Which race needs equality and justice in this moment? Our nation is seeing how we have built a system of oppression on Black people throughout history and how we are upholding that today. Why do we need to distract from that mission, which is already long overdue? Black lives are being treated like they don’t matter in this country. It’s a serious problem in every classroom, courtroom, and police station. Asian lives are not at risk to this extent. So we don’t need to distract from the mission at hand: to finally start working on reparations and support for black communities and to stop implementing and strengthening systems of oppression.

      @Trinity Lee You're downplaying the struggles of Asians. I highly doubt you've actually experienced anything Asians go through. Asians face tons of active discrimination. Affirmative action literally puts a hard cap on all facets of life. Asians have to work harder for everything. That means we gotta work harder to get jobs, schools, visas and citizenship, and getting legal representation. We were never outright enslaved, but that's not our fault. It's not a bad thing Asians worked hard to get where they are. This is entirely a white and black issue.

    Black people peacefully protest. The right criticizes and doesn’t listen. Black people kneel for the anthem. The right says it’s disrespectful and criticizes. (Kaepernick was asked to kneel by a veteran and kneeling is what you do before royalty so that doesn’t even make sense) Black people get tired of not being listened to and protest and in frustration things escalate. The right portrays them as monstrous and criticizes saying “There are better ways to protest”. Am I wrong or does this shit not make damn sense?

Still think minorities are too stupid to make their own decisions. Now, you can support them willingly and that's fine. But it ain't the party for me when everything it does puts you at a disadvantage
