Andrew Yang on SNL's Shane Gillis' comments: Racial epithets hurt, but it's different with comedians

In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said racial epithets hurt, but in the case of comedians, words should be taken in a different light. This comes after Yang jumped into controversy on Twitter by responding to Shane Gillis', a new cast member on "Saturday Night Live," past racial remarks on a podcast. #CNN #News

  • America and it's people will re-elect Trump because there in a state of anger . Yang would be a good choice and makes good sense but As I've stated most Americans would rather see the world fall apart and burn before realizing there mistakes. The age of rage has a grip on most people hearts and minds so real change won't happen.

  • Racism against Asians or Asian Americans is very real. It is more subtle, complex, and implicit as compared to racism against other minority groups. Therefore, racism against Asian Americans tends to be trivialized. However, I want fellow Americans to remember none of the following: wealth, professional status, or even presidency, is immune to racial prejudices. Asian Americans, although lauded as the "model minority," are arguably one of the most politically disenfranchised minority groups in the United States. If indeed, Asian Americans are so successful and admirable, why there is such a lack of representation in the leadership roles by Asian Americans in our country's political landscape? Late Berkeley historian Ronald Takaki presented an excellent episode at the beginning of his book A Different Mirror, in which a US-born Asian American was asked the question where he was from. The physical features of Asian Americans project the message of "foreignness," and "foreignness" in appearance leads to unfounded mistrust. Having said the above, regardless of the election result, I just want to say I am proud of Andrew Yang who has so far represented Asian Americans so well and so courageously! We need more people like him. I understand Asian Americans is a highly diverse group in the United States. We have our differences and conflicts like any other race. The fact that we tend to be from different national origins amplifies our distances. However, the fact that we are facing the common racial prejudices and barriers alone should unify us. We need more solidarity and empathy among Asian Americans and all Americans. Indeed, there is diversity, but there is something to me more important, that is, humanity!

  • Major Respect for being ballsy enough to say that. Psychedelics are the limit for most people. I recently saw an ad from Elizabeth Warren saying she was against the drug war and it was time to “decriminalize marijuana”. She just entered the 2010s and Yang is in 2040s

  • Andrew Yang is the only candidate that have united everyone. Like a sports athlete competing for his country, in that moment, there is no left or right, there is no Black or White, just America kicking ass. CNN and mainstream media is repeating their mistakes again by discrediting Andrew Yang. Just like how they predicted and focused at Hillary winning but at the end of the day Trump did win. Andrew Yang did the research, he knew how Donald Trump won the only differences is Yang had a solid plan. not just point out problem. yanggang

  • I am an Independent because I do have problem with some of the Democratic as well as Republican ideals. I support Andrew Yang because he is not bound by special interest money. He offers a refreshing change to the empty promise politics as usual. INSANITY- Doing the same but expecting different results. Most Americans agree that gun violence is out of control; the rich and poor gap is getting wider; housing, education and medical is unaffordable; Yet we want to elect a career politician to be the President and expect things to change. We need someone with REAL world experience especially as a nonprofit entrepreneur who is not inspired to be a lifetime politician. We need only a problem solver. WIN-WIN deal -EVERYONE BENEFITS. Despite benefitting tremendously from the current political system, I see tremendous troubles in our current political directions. My fear is the mass will continue to decline in wealth, health and hope for the future. Unlike most social benefits, the Freedom Dividend does not prevent people from working. The poor will benefit by having the basic needs satisfied. The rich and the business world will also benefit from a stable society AND the prospect of a huge market. How can we afford the Freedom Dividend? First we stabilize society by giving them hope with the Freedom Dividend. Second, we cut down on the massive fraud and waste in the government. Finally, we let the true spirit of capitalism do its magic when our entire society is able to participate. Artificial Intelligence is here to stay and take over a large number of jobs. Our society must learn to benefit and adapt.

  • The more I think about this Freedom Dividend, the more it pisses me off. Pure politics.Look at what theyre calling it.Dividend? A divendend is something thats paid off to someone that PAID their own money to invest in a stock etc. A dividend has never been given to anyone that had zero money involved. So its a bullshit name, but what else could they call it? What it really is?? Noooo. Free money for doing nothing doesnt go over well with hard working Americans Nor entreprenuers.
