Louis CK Explains Historical Context To Jay Leno

"I'm not trying to say that if you're white, you can't complain, I'm just saying that if you're black, you get to complain more... Because you can't take people's historical context away from them, white people are always like: 'come on, it wasn't us.

Like every year, white people add 100 years to how long slavery was. I've heard educated white people say: 'slavery was 400 years ago.'

No it very wasn't. It was 140 years ago. That's two 70-year-old ladies living and dying back-to-back. 

By the way, white people have our own stuff that we went through, that hurt us, that we have to cope with, like when they took our slaves away, and that was really hard for for us."

This guy is friggin' nuts, lol
