How racist Tomi Lahren played Trevor Noah and Charlamagne Tha God

tomi-lahren

Tom Lahren has become the voice of racist White millennials. The alt-right TV host of “Tomi” on TheBlaze has used her platform to spew racism and hate. Along with being a racist, Lahren isn’t well-informed. She speaks without conducting proper research or taking the time understand how racism continues to affect society.

For instance, when discussing Black Lives Matter, Lahren compared the organization to the KKK. “Meet the new KKK, they call themselves ‘Black Lives Matter’ but make no mistake their goals are far from equality.” Apparently, she purposefully ignored the fact that the KKK lynched thousands of Blacks and made it a point to terrorize a group of people based solely on color. Black Lives Matter, on the other hand, seeks to bring attention to the lack of justice given to Blacks and other minority groups. Lahren’s irrational comparison of the KKK to Black Lives Matter proved that she is severely ignorant and racist.

But her position as an ignorant racist is often overlooked because of her looks. Lahren is a young, 24-year-old, blonde White woman who could probably be a Hollywood darling if she could act. She is easier to look at than other right-wing pundits such as Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, or Glenn Beck. However, she spews the same racial rhetoric.

So it was appalling to see how Trevor Noah and Charlamagne tha God allowed themselves to be played by Lauren. On Nov. 30, Noah invited Lahren to the “The Daily Show” where she got a chance to reveal her views to a wider audience. Noah rarely challenged Lahren’s ignorance and simply allowed her to share her views. Some viewed his passive interviewing style as a way for Lahren to make herself appear foolish due to her lack of knowledge. Others saw it is an opportunity for Lahren to spread her hateful messages to a wider audience. Trevor, and his producers, would later have dinner with Lahren and they sent her cupcakes.

Several days later, Charlamagne tha God was caught on the street walking with Lahren in New York. She made a joke saying, “See, I hang out with Black people, I bet you’re surprised.” Charlamagne was blasted on Twitter on social media and responded by tweeting, “If you don’t like the narratives people are painting of you, create your own platforms to control your own narratives. Would be dope if a young Black or Hispanic ‘WOKE’ woman used social media to create a platform to be a voice like Tomi Lahren did.”

As a journalist, you have the opportunity to speak with people who come from different cultures and backgrounds and it does allow for more understanding. But in the case of someone like Lahren, she represents a small part of how racism is often legitimized by Americans. Many Whites believe that if they have a few Black friends that they can’t be racist in action. Also, some Blacks believe that if they can sit down and understand a racist person, it can somehow help to solve bigger issues in the community.

Allowing a racist to be comfortable with their actions is the worst decision that Trevor Noah and Charlamagne tha God could have made. A racist person should always be made to feel uncomfortable with how they view the world. Because their views often lead to systematic oppression. If you can believe that Black Lives Matter is the new KKK, you can believe that it’s okay for a police officer to shoot an unarmed Black person in the back five times. You can believe that there is no such thing as inequality when it comes to education, housing, the job market, and earning potential.

Noah appeared on “The Breakfast Club” and said, “Racism is a disease that’s passed down through generation.” He presented it as something that can be treated with a hospital visit or medicine. But racism is far from a disease. Racism is the sociopathic need for power that one group wants to hold and maintain over another group. And to maintain power, that group will do whatever it takes to make life difficult for millions. Racism isn’t something that can be fixed with smiles, interviews, and cup cakes. That’s why it was appalling to see Trevor Noah and Charlamagne tha God allow themselves to be played by a young, blonde, and bona fide racist.

    I vehemently disagree with this line: “Noah rarely challenged Lahren’s ignorance.” Trevor Noah challenged her the entire time from her views on KKK, Black Lives Matter, protesting, etc. I cannot defend the cupcakes, but Trevor Noah debated with her nonstop on “The Daily Show,” which was actually a bit surprising considering he usually has agreeable guests. Charlamagne? No defense. Trevor Noah? I’m guessing you didn’t even bother to watch.

      A.R. Shaw…

      YOUR BLOG/article…was poor journalism. Sorry but this is THE WORST Journalism I have seen from Rollingout.

      HERE IS WHY:

      1. Tomi Lahren, isn’t racist or a bigot. She actually has a different opinion. Respect her opinion if you want yours respected.

      2. Hanging out with BLACKS does change the landscape. RACIST don’t fuck with BLACKS PERIOD.

      3. Black people are the biggest PROBLEM to BLACK GROWTH in America. Not Whites, to say WHITES are the problem or holding back BLACKS is a LIE.

      4. Do you know Tomi Lahren PERSONALLY to say these things you wrote (A.R. Shaw)

      5. Trevor Noah, and Charlamagne, are ONLY ENTERTAINERS not Politicians, Leaders, or Spokesmen for BLACKS. They did their JOB !!!

      6. Tomi Lahren, is a young, fine, white woman and she will always get a PASS in America.

      7. What would you have them ask or demand of Tomi Lahren?

      8. Your angle on this article makes NO LOGIC or direction, so it should NOT have been written.

      9. What good will come out of your BLOG on Tomi, or what are you trying to say.

      10. Crying racism, white oppression and the rules are different for BLACKS, that shtick is getting old. Black on BLACK crime is more of a problem, in BLACK AMERICA. Not WHITE FOLKS.

      I could go on and on and on…BUT YOU GET THE POINT.

    It bothers me that people are forgetting the basics of journalism. The idea is to present BOTH sides. Bill Maher does it all the time on “Real Time With Bill Maher.” Why can’t Trevor Noah get the same opportunity to do so … and well?

    • Jason on December 7, 2016 at 7:01 pm

      Because a Jewish person would not entertain the thought, ideas, dreams or wishes of an anti-semitic person. Blacks, via seeking White acceptance, will accept the most vile/racist individuals amongst them. The only attention a Black person should give a White Supremacist is via a warning that they should steer clear. Have some dignity for yourself and your group if you expect the same from others.

      • Sol Rothstein on December 10, 2016 at 1:16 pm

        YES we do. AS A JEW, I call your comment — BULLSHIT.

        • TheDOTKU on December 11, 2016 at 2:25 pm

          And a man from what I read in a previous comment. Just pointing that out because you are obviously using a photo of big tits to throw people off. Do they represent your pregnant looking belly like the rest of guys who do that to make it seem like their comments are coming from women?

          • Sol Rothstein on December 12, 2016 at 2:07 pm

            YOU bastard, my avatar is of my wife. She is a former model.



          • TheDOTKU on December 13, 2016 at 3:17 am

            In a fantasy you once had? Anyway, even if that is a picture of your wife, guys do that intentionally to make it seem like they are voicing the opinion of a woman, it is a common trolling tactic, and I see you trolling all over this site.



          • Sol Rothstein on December 13, 2016 at 2:16 pm

            Do you need to smell my DICK as proof…NIGGER



          • TheDOTKU on December 14, 2016 at 9:02 pm

            No! Don’t want to go anywhere around your dick guy!



          • TheDOTKU on December 14, 2016 at 9:26 pm

            That woman must not either because you have so much time to spend on here. Masturbation with fish sauce while having a fantasy about a woman ≠ being with a woman.



          • RJSwift on January 13, 2017 at 5:09 pm

            “NIGGER”. Hmm… yet no racial slurs from the opposing side. Discrediting oneself in a debate about racism. Typical. Typical. Typical. And Now, the excuses and justification begins in 5…4…3…2..1..



          • Sol Rothstein on January 14, 2017 at 3:14 pm

            FUCK YOU BLACK WHORE.



    • Not about that life on December 8, 2016 at 10:22 am

      The rules are always different for us and we ourselves as black people perpetuate these rules unknowingly . That is why propaganda is so effective, the people it affects the most are usually the ones pushing it just as much as the oppressor.

      • Sol Rothstein on December 10, 2016 at 1:17 pm

        The rules are the same for BLACKS. We just want to believe we are ABOVE THE LAW.

        Stop the victimization card and TAKE SOME — Personal Accountability

    if a black person held those same views, particularly a black woman, she would be considered ” an angry black woman”, she would be hated, and she had better be unemployed because she would positively lose her job. Her employer would distance themselves from her quickly. There is a dbl standard when it comes to white ppl saying and doing what the hell they want and it’s called ” their point of view” . We are just such an understanding ppl. And, Black ppl are becoming desensitized to “BS” everywhere. we are making excuses for hatred, bigotry, classism, sexism .. we can not afford to keep giving everyone a pass when they crap on us. When will enough be enough?

    • Jason on December 7, 2016 at 7:10 pm

      Agreed. Blacks need to stop trying to reckon and reason with White Supremacists. Do Black people really think that engaging in conversations with hardcore White Supremacists will do anything to change their minds? What is the point? Have you ever known an ass kisser that was respected by the person who owned the ass they kissed? You sit and argue/debate with people you care about. F#$K the rest. Blacks have got to get over this infantile behavior when White folks are in the room. Blacks don’t gain any respect by entertaining people who have openly stated that they want us “gone”.

      • Sol Rothstein on December 10, 2016 at 1:17 pm

        Whites are not SUPREME so why use wording like that…YOU ARE MAKING THEM BETTER THAN YOU…merely by using the words Supreme.

    • TheDOTKU on December 11, 2016 at 2:29 pm

      I feel like I must be a black woman because all that stuff you said happens to black women is what happened to me. I have been told by a black woman I was a black person on the inside but I never thought about it in this context.

  4. Not My Name on December 7, 2016 at 11:35 pm

    I must admit, the biased liberal media is turning into a self-fulfilling prophecy. Even NY Time’s public editor insinuitated that their reporters were letting the bias get in the way of objective reporting.

    • Sol Rothstein on December 10, 2016 at 1:18 pm

      PREACH…thank you

  5. Not about that life on December 8, 2016 at 10:36 am

    Is she really an “alt-right TV host” or is that another thing that is being thrown out there? I don’t know much about her but it seems a lot of people are confusing ignorance with racism. Racists are ignorant but I don’t think an ignorant person is necessarily racist. The two example of racism people keep bringing up is her comparison of blm to kkk which is just plain stupid more than anything and Beyoncé criticism which was equally as dumb, but racist? She’s 24 with very little life experience, there are a lot of them saying stupid things. Go around to college campuses and there you will find a bunch of ultra liberals that are saying things just as dumb and could also be perceived as racist. As to why Trevor would give a 24yo with no real intellectual insight on anything is another story.

    This article is a prime example of Social Justice wankers playing the race and bigotry cards….again! Your schtick is getting old dude.

    • Sol Rothstein on December 10, 2016 at 1:18 pm

      YOU see it the same as I.

  7. TheDOTKU on December 11, 2016 at 2:20 pm

    Black Lives Matter does nothing to change the mind of the hateful bigots who just don’t give a fuck and never did, if anything it makes those people behave more indignant. Meanwhile Black Lives Matter *OBVIOUSLY the movement not the saying because no shit life matters* push away people who actually do care and don’t see others as a skin color. If you hate me for that you hate someone who went to war with black men, who would have died to protect them, I see all the colors in every color, so really you are just another bigot spewing hate.

    • TheDOTKU on December 11, 2016 at 2:43 pm

      I have this joke I use to say to Germans *Remember when your people were enslaved by the Italians?* and I then I laugh my ass off while it takes them awhile to get why I would bring up something like that. Honestly the main reason I don’t know how to deal with bigots is because a lot of it stems from religion, they guard these books with their life for thousands of years and call them doctrine and that doctrine says it is ok to abuse others for nothing more than dominance… you probably won’t get rid of this aspect of humanity until people stop worshiping books filled with hate speech. You should also know that being a white woman does not make my life easy, all men think they are superior to women, any skin tone who isn’t white sees all white people as the problem, so we aren’t only getting it from white men the same as non white people… it’s coming from everywhere… who out there doesn’t think lowly of white women, like no matter how hard they will often fight for others? Another point just to bring up, the women who side with bigot men are typically very abused by those men, like to the extent of brain damage, if you looked at their personal lives you’d probably pity them because they don’t even really get to be a person anymore. That’s another thing, men and all their violence just in general. :/ Come on world.
