Trevor Noah, one of SA's most popular comedians now settled in the US, recently left people astounded at how articulately he explained white privilege. He broke down what it is in such a way that it was easy to see why it's a real problem.
Trevor Noah enjoys engaging with his viewers during breaks while filming his talk show, The Daily Show, and recently left viewers seriously impressed.
The topic of white privilege came up, and Trevor broke it down so people could understand why it's a real issue that needs to be addressed.
Comparing white privilege to golf might not sound like a good idea, but it helped Trevor explain the disadvantages that black people had to face for many years, and sometimes still do.
Although Trevor was addressing the issue as it stands in America, the way he described it is applicable all over the world.
The comedian pointed out that it is difficult for white people to grasp the idea of white privilege, but explained that it is real.
It is hard to accept that you have benefits because of the colour of your skin if you cannot see the benefits that you have.
Social media users expressed their amazement at how well Trevor explained the matter on Twitter.
