Trevor Noah promotes his memoir, talks about his upbringing and liberal hatred



  • His memoir is a depiction of living in South Africa both under and after apartheid.

  • Wasn't allowed to play outside as a kid since his mother could be arrested for having a relationship with a white man.

  • Talks about growing up lonely and an outsider.

  • Thinks that racism is so blatant in SA that nobody can deny it while it's written in the American system but many Americans are still convinced there's no problem.

  • Thinks everyone lives in a bubble thanks to social media and that truth is only regarded as one of several opinions.

  • Was surprised by the backlash from liberals who wanted him to go back to Africa.
