Trevor Noah Asks: When Is The Right Time For Blacks To Protest?

Apparently, never.

Trevor Noah asked one very important question during last night's Daily Show: When is the "right time" for Blacks to protest?

I would answer it's the same answer as when is the right time to protest the NRA after a mass shooting: Never.

But Trevor Noah joked that for him, the best time is "before lunch, because I'm hangry."

Then he turned to the true experts in Black protest -- Trump's Treasury Secretary and White billionaire Steve Mnuchin, and former congressman and bigoted Twitter troll Joe Walsh, who called Stevie Wonder (yes, that Stevie Wonder) "another ungrateful black multi-millionaire.”

Trevor Noah had had enough:

Ungrateful to whom? I’m fascinated by that concept. People always say that. Ungrateful to whom? This idea that black people should be grateful is some sneaky-ass racism. A white billionaire spends a year screaming that America is a disaster, and he’s “in touch with the country” but when a black man kneels quietly, he should be grateful for the successes that America has allowed him to have?

On topic, Bree Newsome got this off on Newt Gingrich earlier today, h/t Capper.
