Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah: The System of Policing in America Designed to Keep Poor and Black People in Their Place

While a series of polls taken since last summer show that black Americans don’t want police departments defunded, and in some cases, want a larger police presence in their neighborhoods, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, who was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, said “the system in policing is doing exactly what it’s meant to do in America and that is keeping poor people in their place.”
