laughable that the show is said to "bridge our ever-increasing divides.". I've seen Van speak many times. Van does the opposite. He builds massive walls of anger and resentment from blacks towards whites. Black resentment, resentment in general, is a dumb place to be. It makes you a victim. It takes away your power by blaming others for your lack of achievement. It keeps you in emotional chains. Slavery ended over 150 years ago. Blacks can accomplish whatever the hell they want. 99.99% of whites have no desire to oppress blacks. Lol. The 0.001% of whites who do, are backward idiots. If whites really wanted to hold down blacks (and had the power to do so) why are Nigerian Americans one of the most successful immigrant groups in America? Van makes millions of dollars from the "Black Oppression Industry.". He's a fraud.. African Americans, Hispanics, and other people of color who are decent and achieve are America's finest!
