Sarah Silverman Visits Chalmette, LA | I Love You, America on Hulu

  1. I grew up in Chalmette and parts of Mississippi throughout my adolescence and still to this day. The mind boggling arguments that this family proposes surrounding welfare in the United States is indicative of the average low in-come family in the Deep South. A lack of educational opportunities compounded with Fox News and other right-wing propaganda has completely devastated the area as a whole. They are all just brainwashed a lot of the times. It’s depressing how many people in our country are okay with many communities similar to this having a complete lack of quality educational standards. It has deeply deeply impacted our American communities and you all are silent…..

  2. I think its unfortunate that this family was excited to have her and were so welcoming. All she did for the whole thing was subtly mock them. What a coward!

  3. whenever someone says they voted for Trump because they wanted "change"…I automatically take that as code for "not black"…

    seriously…if you have 43 WHITE presidents, then ONE black president, then back to ANOTHER white president…what kind of "change" are talking about?

  4. This is not a valid representation of middle America. Additionally, Sarah Silverman is not a valid representation of a Jew or a comedian.

  5. My perspective is that of a foreign student and worker who's been living in the US for a few years and who has no intention of becoming American, but I gotta say the thing about Obama being foreign is just dumb and the image it gives about Americans is of them being ignorant, gullible and not very smart. Also I think the United States and the world need Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in charge, not Trump and Pence. They could go even further than Obama did.

  6. This is awful and it’s good that it was cancelled after one season. Fuck sarah and I wish her the worst in life.

  7. what the fuck is wrong with the 26 year old, she's literally eating off of gov handouts, and she complains about obama handouts

  8. When she asked about gay marriage I cringed so hard expecting the worst answers but was for the most part was pleasantly surprised by what they had to say. Why can’t everyone be okay with it. Gay marriage has nothing to do with anyone besides gay people who want to get married. Love is love ?️‍?
