'The Daily Show' comments on Detroit in their segment "Spot the Africa"

by

Thursday night's episode of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart featured a segment with South African comedian Trevor Noah. "Spot the Africa" finds Noah and Stewart going back and forth in a game identifying photos that were taken in the U.S., and those taken in Africa.

Here's an example:

Stewart suggests the students on the left are in Harlem, while the children on the right are in Somalia.

The correct answer is Kenya on the left; Children in Detroit, right.

Stewart then guesses the photo here on the right is from Detroit. Noah corrects him, and says it's actually of a fucked up slum in Johannesburg.

The segment then goes on to compare the current incarceration rate and race-wealth gap in the U.S. to apartheid South Africa.
