      Hasan... PLEASE TALK ABOUT EGYPT! Let the world know what’s happening there and what kind of government we have, the Egyptian people are suffering everyday under the the management of the killer SISI. Please help Egyptian people.

      Welcome to the land of opportunity.. Opportunity to 1. Kill legally 2. Kill illegally 3. #$%€ the POTUS 4. Build the Wall 5. Play with Iraqi WMDs

      communities of colour but they are all black unarmed men. I think you mean communities of African americans

      Police brutality? Well, don't piss off anyone that works seventy hour weeks, has bills up-the-ass to pay, and on top-of-that...three separate alimony payments and six child support payments. Keep-your hands outta your pockets. Keep your hands on the steering wheel. Record, if ya want. Don't be smokin pot in the vehicle(that's just ignorance). And most importantly...Have a good attitude. And don't argue. Save that for the Judge & your lawyer (or, as usual...your taxpayer appointed lawyer).

      Government officials said UFOs are real. Bring back the audience member who talked about UFOs and let's have a episode about UFOs!!!:)

      Too bad for the POC that the police is anti-crime. POC (C could either be Color or Crime) commit disproportionately more crimes than non - POCs.

    7. Divyesh Khatri

      Hasan, can you please do one on the 2008 financial crisis?

    8. private name

      The police are the new red coats. A mindset of superiority mixed in with illegal tactics towards citizens

    9. MuzzstepTV

      This doesn’t have to be a race issue if you just make it a gun issue. America needs to join the rest of the world and stop gunning down their own civilians. I mean sure black guys are still gonna probably get harassed but at least they won’t be dead?

    10. melvina628

      12:19 Is it possible to hire people to digitize those records? Wouldn't that create new jobs for the community?

    11. Toni Lynn Iachetta

      Hasan & Team, could you please do an episode about how US-new and Instagram allow underage girls to be sexually exploited. Danielle Cohn, please look her up. She's 13 years old, but her mom lies and claims she's 15, which still isn't better. Check her IG. Reporting the account to IG doesn't do anything even though it's explicitly against their ToS. She's not the only one. A lot of kids are getting trapped into this and it's really their parents. We need a bigger voice to address this and bring awareness. Children are being used for sexual exploitation on IG and YT and they're not doing anything about it.

      This reminds me of refereeing, unlike in baseball, unless you have VAR you can't undo a call. Also we are always right. After you make a call you can't talk to your ars to make sure you did it right. Soccor refereeing is based on protecting us rather than the integrity of the game. We are not supposed to rain admit we made a mistake, we are trained that it makes us look weak and undermines thier trust of us.

      Hasan wielded his way through finger banging like a pro 🤣

      In airline pilot training a significant part of flight simulator training is to respond to problems, SOME of which require the pilot to take drastic measures to call an emergency and land the plane as soon as possible. However in the vast majority of cases the training just involves responding to minor problems that can be diagnosed and fixed in flight without taking drastic measures or diverting the flight. In fact incorrect training that emphasizes to treat all anomalies as an emergency has lead to several major disasters. (most infamous perhaps AA 587 where American Airlines trained its pilots to overcorrect for wake turbulence, even though the manufacturer has repeatedly expressed concern about this training practice. Misdiagnosing a problem as an emergency just creates an emergency by itself.

    18. pop5678eye

      Here's an advice to everyone how to avoid being shot by cops: be born rich and white. (seriously, even in armed confrontations with police rich white men usually end up being killed by their own gun rather than the police)

    19. Kairen Jamieson

      Pilots need at least 250 flight hours, including 100 hours of pilot-in-command time and 50 hours of cross-country flying. Also, you'll need to get at least 10 hours of instrument training and 10 hours in a complex aircraft....that's a lot of time in the air and not on landings or opening the doors...maybe they need to drop the air time training to 5 hours and focus on the landings

    23. Djed Vartanes

      As a European, I'm distrubed. How is every facet of this system so wrong? How did no one notices that fear based policing might be the wrong idea? That cops shouldn't be ready to kill people at every moment? That deescalation is the key to uphold law and order? How come every other country has figured that out but not the US?

      They haven't witnessed an uprising in so long.

    26. Saira Kalia

      Thank you for bringing light to these major issues. I would urge you and your team to consider bringing light to the issues of suicide, physician suicide and exploitation of physicians (just think of the tie into the Asian culture - make the family proud by defending doctors). Another topic often misrepresented is Maternal Mental Health esp considering it from a social perspective - family leave(maternity and paternity) and the concept of how are we raising the next generation if we cant support parents

    27. Raymond Melendez

      Hasan 8 episodes is not a season. Can we get less screens and more episodes?

    28. ellie,muffasa and others

      usa is doing same mistake which led to collapse of rome .

      Is that dude he interviewed Michael Scott?.......I’m pretty sure it’s Michael Scott.

      You never overcame the racism. If you don´t reform you whole school system. You all are just teached what you are supposed to know, not what you need to know!

      Information provided on Hassan's show is not new. The facts and information are already out there as head lines, facts and figures. We do read and notice them but being the demure public that we are, we don't acknowledge them. Hassan and his team does a great job of presenting the content in a very interesting and comedic way. I always wondered why he never got into trouble. Truly speaking, once I started to watch and listen closely I realized he just shares the information in a "controversial way" when they are not something taken off of say FBI. Probably the reason why he didn't and won't get into trouble. This is not a criticism. I really enjoy his show!

    33. joseph birrenkott

      People on both extremes of this issue just auto condemn the other side and assume they are guilty. Minority gets abused or killed by corrupt cop... cop is defended - some know better while others don't. On other side, cop gets severely injured or killed trying to "give the suspect the benefit of the doubt". Or they get socially destroyed for pulling a gun on an unarmed suspect and it's even on film. But the part the news and public don't cover is that the suspect refused to cooperate, the officer was told that the suspect is probably armed, and the suspect (or person matching said description who isn't cooperating so that their innocence can be quickly determined) has a history of violence against officers. And thus unnecessary violence happens to both sides - reinforcing and coloring people's perceptions. This continues the history of neither side in general wanting to trust the other and continues to see decent people on both sides caught in the cross fire and paying the price. The price caused by people on both sides who go to the extreme.

    34. Mike Tovar

      The professor in the interview claimed the US police was the best trained in the world! This is only a joke, Professor? On US average, the training there lasts 19 weeks. That is ridiculous. What do you want to learn in this short time? Come to Germany Professor. The cops in Germany have to undergo a thorough psychological, health and sports examination. They are tested in German and English and mathematics as well as general education. Only when they have passed all the tests are they allowed to go to the police school and are trained there for 3 years. Think again, professor!

      Dear Hasan, Please make some videos on Indian problems.🤐

    37. mctravels lifevideos

      There are a lot of conflicting things Hasan is saying, I understand because he wants to add comedy to a very serious issue but still conflicts his points. The stuff cops have to deal everyday to keep us all safe is something that you won't even believe happens. They train more in weapons because they need to be precise with it, they need weapons training so when they need to shoot a dog, it won't hit a kid. Also why cops are immune to being sued is because like Hasan said, americans like to sue everybody, there will be a lot of good cops that will be falsely sued if you let cops be sued. I think Cops becomes bad because of what they've been through being a cop. And cop jobs are not really on top of the list of many americans, if you take out their immunity I think we would have a bigger problem with crime because of lesser cops.

      I like the show a lot, but can you please leave the f-ing camera angle at 1 spot?

    41. MrSunlander

      656 cops panning this.....

    42. Louis Williamson

      People forget that the police have no right to protect you. There have been a few court cases regarding this, including a Supreme Court case. The origin of police forces in the US begins with protecting slaveowner property - the slaves themselves, which meant hunting down those slaves if they were trying to gain autonomy and not be considered property and 3/5ths of a human being. Even now, property rights are imperative for cops, not human rights. It's basically a mirroring of this capitalist hellscape we live in, where corporations have more human rights than actual humans. Wish Minhaj would've touched on that point

      what about a cop that kills other cops? do they get these kinds of protections too? because if so, i think i found a solution to this problem.

      "Racism solved" Damn!

    47. Sajad Wani

      Hey Hasan u are doing a wonderful job by discussing issues which are important but somehow do not get attention they deserve. One such issue right now is the brutal way India has incarcerated an entire valley of kashmir with 8 million people. India is using it's naked military might and state machinery to suppress the basic human rights of Kashmiris. I request you in sprit of great empowering work you doing to do an episode on current crisis in kashmir. I understand stand it may cause you backlash from sizable Indian trolls, but I believe that the work you do is basically motivated by the passion of doing the right thing.

      I still don't get that Pepsi commercial... kendall is handing him a pepsi the crowd cheers... sooooo.... are people offended that shes like trying to be the white savior by creating peace with a pepsi? My first thought about the commercial is this is a really stupid commercial they can do better

    50. eric5335

      Arabs and people like Hasan were often considered "white" in America because of the Caucasian label (which included more than peoples of Europe). Sometimes mixed blacks tried to avoid segregation and legal racial oppression against blacks by claiming to be of Arab descent just to avoid being lumped into the black category. And it often worked. People like Hasan, or as the law said (Turks and Moors) could not legally be enslaved back in the 1700's, they could legally marry other whites, did not face segregation laws, did not have to go to separate schools, could receive more loans and could join many worker unions which were restricted to whites only.

    51. Shweta Pandya

      Dear Hasan uncle, The world is unfair and sometimes I get nightmares about it. Sometimes I google about insomnia too and end up not sleeping till early morning. In this hellish place, there’s only one constant: your soothing voice. I go to sleep listening to it and wake up to you talking about sneakers. Please record happy things in your voice for us insomniacs. Thanks, Shweta and Karan From India

    52. Sam Ragland

      Im Filipino and i really admire you and your show man🔥💯 keep up the great work. #1fan even before the daily show.

      Good luck changing the police union culture. Not happening, at least any time soon. It was always nice to know that they were looking after my back.

    56. Tim B's TechTalk

      Great episode! I would like to see Hasan address the explosion of subscription fees in the tech world. Companies like Apple and developers are pushing subscriptions models because revenue is increased 5 to 20 times than paid models. It’s crazy that no one is talking about it

    64. Jermaine Edwards

      It's not about the police being held to a higher standard because this is systematic this is systematic white supremacy the system is designed exactly how it was meant to be the standard the police are being held to is a high standard in the world of white supremacy to get rid of this issue you need to destroy the system of white supremacy.

    65. Bruk D

      Can you imagine if Hassan gets killed, how hard will it be to know who’s the real killer? This dude is making new enemies every episode and now the police...😂😂

    70. DesertRat45

      the method used in this video is the same as it the KKK wrote the script. In the name of rights and fairness, he uses race, religion and gaslighting to label everyone who isn't him, or close to him. So, his solution is a national police force? Can anyone see the jive here? This whole thing is exchanging victim status for victim status with laugh tracts. This isn't about ending any corrupt regime at all. It's simply herding you in a direction it wants you to go, and, you'll go. I can read it in the comments. The same people who hate cops, wants big government, no perosnal ownership of firearms, somehow believes, a political body made up of corruptable, fallible people. This whole pony herding is using comedy, hate and anger to steer your mind. The left wants more government. In doing so, you need more cops. The right, is the other side of coin, freedom ! ! But make people live my way. This is a gaslighting video. Just enough factual information with out all the details.
