No, I’m definitely not a fan of John Oliver. I think he’s stupid.
He starts with the Bruce family that was threatened by the Democrat KKK with robes on and then had their property stolen by the same Democrat KKK members with their robes off (probably). Don’t know for sure the government was Democrat, but it’s fairly safe bet. That’s the problem.
Then he talks about the racial clauses in property contracts. I remember when someone found that Chief Justice Rehnquist had signed such an agreement. He said he wasn’t aware it was in the document and it was a shame, though all such clauses had been outlawed and made obsolete. And they are indeed shameful, but none of them are in effect. No doubt Republicans passed the law against them.
Yes, there has been wrongful discrimination against blacks in the past. It was bad, now it’s much better. In fact, it’s so good now that Democrats have to go to absurd extremes to pretend they’re a better deal for blacks than Republicans.
He condemns Nixon for saying he believed “… forced integration of the suburbs is not in the national interest.” Did you catch the key word? FORCED! Republicans don’t like anything to be forced. Make it all legal as it should be and let prople do what they want. Many whites want to remain in a white neighborhood, many blacks want to remain in black neighborhoods and many Hispanics want to remain in a Hispanic neighborhood. To each his own. Integration isn’t necessarily a panacea.
He’s selling racism as a solution. Reparations would be officially approved racism.
Democrats are the problem. If you want to solve the problem, vote out the culprits. You may recall that the last Republican president we had reduced black unemployment to a record low. That started to solve the problem before the invention of the pandemic destroyed it.
