TREVOR ASKS: WHY IS THE VIDEO NEVER ENOUGH?
Trevor asks, “Why is the video never enough?”
The Daily Show host Trevor Noah took time out from being all laughs last week to address the fatal police shootings of Alston Sterling and Philando Castile.
He spoke about “two videos in two days of police fatally shooting two black men” who hadn’t done anything to lose their lives. He also found it strange that in America being “pro” something necessarily means being “anti” something else.
“Seeing is believing,” he said, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with videos of the police shooting black people. “Why is the video never enough?” he wondered while urging the American police force to “fix the problem”.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah airs on Comedy Central Africa from Tuesday to Friday at 21:00 CAT.
