  • 91 dislikes? Ok. Thousands of likes? Heck yeah.

  • LOL

  • Being gaslit like these reporters is brutal. IDK how they handle it on TV.

  • Imagine watching 4:18 with a mouthful of toothpaste in the morning LOL 😂

  • This made me laugh and think at the same time. Thank you.

  • Black journalism man, reacts into reality

  • The video is okay, but I don’t value any of the journalists that he mentioned. Largely, I find them disingenuous. However, I do feel that they should be free to truly express themselves like any other would.

  • I IMMIGRATED HERE BECAISE AMERICAN TV. I THOUGHT BY WATCHING IT THAT AMERICA WAS AN AFRICAN COUNTRY.

  • I hate when they start with Those People because you know who they are referring too, it's so Overt and Racist at same Time that Code word Bull---t.Peace

  • Lester is a Republican.Peace

  • Hire whoever does the best job. The most qualified people should be hired. But whatever help someone who’s black can get…they need it! Reparations in many forms. JUSTICE!

  • Don Lemon is not a journalist , Please .

  • The last bit had me on the floor!!🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • I miss being young ( you know when I had the energy at the end if the day to stay up and watch The Daily Show and A Late Show.

  • 5 year old video??.

  • Best segment ever

  • Republicans got the story of Don Quixote wrong, of course.

  • Roy is the man!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 excellent 👌

  • Racist journalism

  • The struggle of black jounalists: being owned by white democrats

  • i wish they would with a Jamaican journalist. their mouth is not censer to disrespectful people

  • Democrats are not dependable.... Thats the main issue

  • everybody loves Joe, get out of here with the nobody wanted to vote for him bs.

  • "Boy bye" reminded me so much of Dulcé's "girl bye" as a 911 operator.

  • Hmm.. Crazy!!!

  • Prayer: light bill, car note...same in academia too! Thank you RWJr for the ending much rewatch.

  • Black man OR woman...though no Black women national anchors that I recall but journalists- yes!

  • Great segment! Keep it up! ❤️

  • Talk about the situation in Haiti Trevor.

  • Hi

  • This was in 2016 ?

  • “Racism doesn’t exist. YOU PEOPLE are just prone to criminality!” omfg! The racists don’t even see it when its blatant and out there!!! But please tell us wealthy white dude, how _should_ we be feeling about the issues you have never experienced first hand in any comparable quantity or fashion?!? We’re all _dying_ to know your thoughts! 🙄🙄🙄

  • Spot on tons of brain dead closet racist people out there

  • I want to thank Big tech and mainstream media for teaching us that we can ban The speech of the President of the United States of America from all platforms and I appreciate them showing us that The Commander in Chief and the leader of the free world doesn't have freedom of speech and when they banned the chief executive officers speech they banned all the co equal branches simultaneously

    • They (specifically social media companies) are private entities people voluntarily agree to use. They reserve the right to their own standards of conduct, not unlike stores requiring a person wear clothes to enter their place of business. Inciting a crowd of his loyalists to disrupt/halt the certification of a presidential election is third world autocratic sh** the companies don't endorse. Constitutionally, there's no free speech issue here as the U.S. president loses that immunity after being sworn into office and regains it when that service is complete.

  • I want more I want more😄

  • The daily show has become all about how black people are suffering "because" of white people, I realize black folks have faced huge injustices, but shoving it my face everytime I watch this show doesn't make me empathetic, all it does is make me not wanna watch the show.

  • Would love to see Roy Wood, Jr. with his own show. I can’t be the only one saying it.

  • The last one cracked me up 😂

  • This pudgy guy is not funny at all

  • Imagine having to shill for Robert Byrd's protege and the author of the 1994 crime bill? The struggle is real. Lololol

  • Should have at least mentioned William Worthy.

  • That shot of Lester with all the eye blinking as trump yelled in his Hitleresque style of oratory was very poignant.

  • "You need to just be glad she didn't hit'em with the Solange." Facts! And super hilarious!

  • If Roy cares about the struggle why he vote for Robert Byrd's protege???? 🤡🤡🤡

  • The struggle of black journalists: being owned by white democrats!

  • Will Trevor ever go back to the studio?

  • “You people” As if they are better or above human… when we all die, it’s in the same coffin. So, what’s the real problem here? Oh you don’t want unity? Diversity? Another voting turnout? What is it?

  • Actually o reilley does look like a user. Hmm. Acst like one too. Is o really a stimulant user?

  • Trevor Noah always bash republicans for being racist But this guy made a career making fun of other ethnicities But when a white guy does that He is so butthurt

  • Do you remember when you said (France) Africa won the World Cup? Nice joke. The NBA is only African Americans. Where is the joke ?

  • Boy do we need a global lets switch places day.

  • Being Black at anywhere in the world is difficult… even in Africa😂😂😂. It’s funny that after all our intelligence we still don’t realize we are all humans. Maybe we are waiting for the aliens 👽 to invade before we put colour aside and embrace ourselves as one people

  • lol @ 3:41

  • Black Journalists holding their s**t together is the only thing moving the conversation on race forward.." ah. I wish that weren't so true.

  • OMG...I am crying 😂. When Roy said he is literally praying to Jesus to not throw them hands..that was hilarious.

  • Some white people don't get to know other races, but they "assume" they know everything about them. However the ones you should be afraid of are the ones who interact with other races & think they understand everything about them.

  • Letter from Kyrsten Sinema!!!!

  • Seeing this, I really feel bad for black journalists. It's not fair to hold them to such a high standard. But thank you for making this, it really helped open my eyes towards this issue.

    • @RoooxANNE Bea I appreciate that. I don't care what people will tell you but it's going to literally take ALL of our cultures to get this long awaited unity. We can't do it ourselves and you guys can't either. I admit, many wht people are definitely doing the work and I'm glad to see it. Sadly there are the "I don't see color" people and that helps only them as they force us to pretend life's wonderful for their mental and spiritual sakes.

    • @Terri Quinn you're very right. I'll be sure to call out white people when they push poc like that. I'm sorry if that came across as empty words.

    • Now if only you'd do your part to help with change for the better. #actionnotsympathy

    • Or any other profession Black People have...

  • “boy bye” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • That one women journalists didnt have to say anything. What she was thinking was totally written all over her face 🤣🤣🤣. She does NOT have a poker face!!!

  • awesome video

  • “Boi Bye” 😂🤣😂🤣

  • Once again the best source of truth is humor.

  • Excellent piece.

  • I died crying of laughter 😂😂😂😂. Daily Show is 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 Awesome segment! As a white guy I think it's time for white people to start policing other white people when they say and imply racist a** sh*t. I mean Marc Lamont Hill showed so much restraint. I would've punched that dude in the face.

  • If you keep on nitpicking, you can go to any country in the world and find any faults or bias with any race or class when it comes to journalism. It was never unique to America. Stop thinking that it’s a race problem and start thinking that it’s a people problem

    • Also those Rwandans i guess were very racist when they committed those genocides in 1994

    • I’m brown and i live in Britain. So when a white person comments on me and being a bit condescending, does that make him a racist?

    • As a white guy, I find that people like you ARE the problem. Pretending something doesnt exist when it really does is sinister and ignorant. Its BECAUSE of people like you that BLM isn't going anywhere. If you cant acknowledge the problem is real and exists systemically then there is no middle ground to meet. I've found a delusional (probably) Trump supporter who wants to pretend race and, therefore, racism doesnt exist all while ignoring, HISTORY, the current battle over voting rights, which statistically and disproportionately affect people of color, or even basic statistics like how black people make 14%/15% of the US population but make up 30 - 45% of the victims of police shootings, or how black people are 7 times more likely to be pulled over during the day than at night when visibility renders the race of the driver obscure from distance, etc. Too many to list. ^Delusional Karen over here^: "Racism isn't real! And if it is, it's everywhere so get over it!" As she tucks in her Washington Redskins jersey and kisses her Confederate flag - which is totally not a symbol of racism and race-based slavery but just a reminder of "southern pride." 😂😂😂 Sometimes the jokes write themselves. #Clown🤡

  • Roy is a national treasure.

  • Marc Lamont Hill

  • you are so funny! Hysterical!

  • This is true of even civilian black folks, even kids. They have to have perfect manners to the white folks screaming at them in videos just to get sympathy.

    • @A P please elaborate

    • @A P what??

    • You mean kinda how you're treating black people right now??

    • True that because even Philando Castile's partner was telling the killer cop: "you shot him 4 times, sir".

  • Roy Wood Jr is great! Love all his segments.

  • 😂😂😂😂😂😂🙌🏿🙌🏿🙌🏿🙌🏿🙌🏿

  • and lets not forget the ones in field, who get targeted by racists and police while covering rallies and protests....

  • nice tackle roy!

  • Why do liberals constantly treat black Americans like this???

  • Whatever happened to Diamond and Pearl?

  • "Arrr! All lives matter! Republicans freed the slaves!!" Add "I'm the least racist person you'll ever meet" and "Frederick Douglass is doing great things," and you've got a Trumplican's best effort at sounding educated on matters of race.

    • @Major Henry L. My dad was an educated conservative. But yes, I agree, they're quite rare.

    • @Major Henry L. they dont want to its not in their propaganda

    • It’s because you’ve never dealt with educated Conservatives

    • @ravinderpal singh the fact that you don't think people on the left criticize Biden and Harris tells me that you don't actually talk about this with many.

    • And Biden is not a racist Kamala harris built a career on black people incarceration But guys like you are always bashing conservatives Aren't you doing the same thing as you accuse them of Some liverals are openly saying that ehite people should be killed, where is your morality then

  • Jesus, didn't save Lamont, bills did. 😂

    • FACTS!!!?

    • Right! I go through the same process at my job. Keeping cool because this rent isn't going to pay itself 🤣

  • Joe Biden was a school segregationist who wrote the 1994 crime bill and contributed to the mass incarceration of black people...but Roy the democrat puppet still voted for him. 🤡🤡🤡🤡

  • PREACH BROTHA WOOD!!!!! PREACH!!!

  • I'm rolling!!!! 🤣🤣🤣

  • I love seeing roy shine through history, but anytime someone says 201X was a bad year, i say to myself, wait until 2020...

  • Notice how no one cares about the border now that a Democrat is potus???

  • Said the democrat puppet who voted for a school segregationist

  • Here at my job some said "you people" and I did the "car note, light bill, mortgage" mantra. Can we please move to Mars now?

  • They definitely have an awesome skillet to deal with the verbal foolishness.

    • It is the ultimate evil game of "Got Ya"!

  • You people You people I hate that phrase 😠😠

    • This is an old "got ya" trope!

  • This was HILARIOUS
