    11:25 As a minority, gotta say we had a genuine debate about affirmative action in Economics class. Its effectiveness, and also (essentially) "is it racist?". Regardless of the view of if you support Affirmative Action, or not, the class, overall, agreed that is was indeed a case of "fighting Racism ... with racism". Discriminating against a person, simply off of their race, to progress another person, simply off of their race. With the reasoning behind it, being - "its not anything specifically about this person, but it's to help make up for previous events (i.e. slavery) and their generational impact. And, it also isn't anything personal for the person discriminated against, it's simply happening for previous generations, and generational impact. (I apologize for any typos above, currently multi tasking, coming back to write this) Anyways... We universally agreed that Affirmative action, is indeed - "Racist" (a policy that enforces racial discrimation, whilst also enforcing racial integration and fighting against discrimination - of minorities). And, at the end of the discussion their were varying degrees of support - for it. With an overall sentiment of "I wish we didnt need this policy. Hopefully one day, we won't. But it does seem like we need some more time to achieve racial harmony, and feeling assured that no discrimination is taking place". Its important to note that, by the end, the conversation switched to protecting Women and Transgender people. There were talks that perhaps they'd also be targeted and dsicrimated against, more or differently. And the fact that Affirmative action isnt just about Race, but also include Gender as well. Point is... dont be "too progressive". We can handle the question of is Affirmative Action racist? and use critical thinking and dialogue, to ultimately arrive at a conclusion where most reasonable people end up at, with all things - somewhere near the middle. Its not a binary answer. Its not "this or that" with all things. Again. sorry for the typos. Keep getting lost in other activities. Good segment. Fuxk fox news!

    The reason we keep talking about racism and race is because racist actions keep happening! (If you’re tired of hearing it, imagine how POC feel living it.) It’s racist to say we should just ignore race. No we need to come to a place where we can finally acknowledge it and address it, instead of letting it continue and pretending it’s not there because it benefits us. A basic underlying message of white supremacy is if we fight to change racism then white people will lose control and power. So we might as well do nothing about it and ignore it. And that’s why we need to keep talking about it. That’s why we should never shut up. An “Out of sight out of mind” attitude will help nothing. We need to make changes. We can’t overlook racism just because recognizing it is painful. If we never grow up and address the real issues... it will destroy us. POC deserve justice, equality, and security.

    I love John Oliver. He has compasion and brings some good points to an issue. But I some what lost respect for LWT when the aired an episode about systematic racism in schools. He showed a clip with a little white girl being asked to look at 6 different coloured dolls ranging from white to dark black and asked to point to the one she thought was bad. She picked the dark black. That's all well and good for the shows narrative BUT they didn't bother showing you the rest of the clip where little girls of every race picked the blackest one. Plus If you read the study it concluded that the darker dolls were probably picked not because the kids hated black people but rather due to our ancestral genes in all humans we at a primal level fear the dark or dark things because thats when animals hunted us. But John purposefully chose not to disclose that but rather choose a 5 second clip for the mere fact it supported racism. Kinda lost reputable points from me.

    I can't stand Tucker Carlson, BUT this clip isn't quite entirely correct. Tucker is poison generally, but he does have points. Does he take it too far? Yes. The problem is people not being able to think skeptically. I think that's Oliver's main point, here.

    • Clem

      @a54109 You being scared of black and brown people doesn’t mean white people are being replaced.

    • a54109

      @Clem Walk in the streets of London or Paris and tell me if you feel safe.

    • Clem

      @a54109 it’s not real. White people aren’t being replaced. They aren’t going extinct. They aren’t being shipped to other countries. Having more immigrants in your country doesn’t mean white people are suddenly disappearing. White replacement theory makes no logical sense. Seeing more brown people around doesn’t mean the white people already there are vanishing. More brown people means the percentage of white people is going down, but the actual population(the part that actually matters) is increasing in the same rate it always has been. This theory is bogus and only believed by idiot neo-nazis and idiot white supremacists.

    • a54109

      Looking at places like London and Paris it seems to be real.

    Stop saying that Tucker's profile is the whitest this and the whitest that. An indicator of the level of whiteness seems racist to me. So much so that one might wonder why Trevor Noah is the only black host of a late-night Democrat-leaning show (John Olivier, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, James Corden, etc.)? No first nation or asian? Tucker is in my opinion a better person than the one John is trying to create. Tucker often discusses complex matters where there is not a single truth.

    On this week tonight: John Oliver vents about a TV personality he doesn't like, backing up his argument with selectively chosen and edited clips


      @a54109 he criticizes Carlson for drawing wrong conclusions from clips, while doing the same thing, except Mr. Olive did it worse. He basically made a video just ranting on basic conservative beliefs he didn't like

    • a54109

    It would help if we stopped pretending that there is no such thing as racism against white people because that does exist. Denying it fuels people like Tucker Carlson and his white supremacists. I am well aware that the racism that minorities experience is overall worse and is a major problem that we need to fix. That doesn't change the fact that racism doesn't also impact white people. There is a double standard about collective responsibility that is constantly drilled into our culture. Our culture constantly points the finger of racism/colonialism/oppression at white people as a group. If someone says "white people are always X" you wont hear anyone speak up against this sort of generalization in the same way we readily do if someone says "black people are always X". Anytime a white person ever does anything shitty to a black person there is an immediate assumption of racism regardless of the evidence. That is the same thing as assuming black people are going to steal or be violent based on race. I'm not saying there isn't race motivated issues, I know their are. When black people receive racial disdain/scorn we are rightfully outraged. When a white person receives the same you will hear excuses about all the things white people did to others in the past, as if that makes it justified.

    I was hoping there'd be more to this, but it seemed like the crux of John's argument was guilt by association. White supremacist's like tucker. They also like sandwiches, like most people. That doesn't make most people white supremacists. Most white supremacist's are also mostly conservative, so they're also gonna like what a lot of conservatives like. And conservatives also really like Tucker. It's not that absurd to think they'd also watch his show. There was a quote or 2 that didn't sound great, but that was like 2min of the video. I thought there'd more concrete evidence. Oh well.

    • 99SamIAm99

      @John holman Carlson tries to explain away things that people do. Especially the racist things. There are people who watch him and then think this is okay. My dad was one of them. These are people who don't want to change, who don't want to give others what they deserve. And the idea that there is "concrete evidence" is really missing the point. We're not talking about overtly racist things. It is media manipulation, plain and simple. Tucker knows where the money is. And he will do everything to keep those people watching.

    • runman

      @John holman maybe not that he's white supremacist (even though he likes to he close to the line of it and dance around it) But that he tends to fuel them because it simply gives money to him while not caring about ethics at times After all, he also fuel the fire that there a steal going on during the elections
