Most of us know Trevor Noah as a commentator who filled Jon Stewart’s spot as moderator of The Daily Show. Like Jon Stewart, he has a keen intellect and a sharp sense of humor.

In this monologue, Trevor Noah is reflective about connecting the dots that brought us to the present moment.

He connects Amy Cooper, the white woman who falsely complained to police that an African American man was threatening her in Central Park, when the man in question complained that her dog was off-leash in an area reserved for bird watchers.

He connects the coronavirus, which has disproportionately harmed African Americans.

He connects the economic collapse, which has impoverished many who were already in dire straights.

And he connects the murder of George Floyd.

All of these events send a message to black Americans that the social contract that underlies society has been severed, forcc c them.

A brilliant presentation.
