    I originally saw Gina on TDS as a correspondent, and she was funny, so I looked up her stand-up. She is absolutely hilarious and, as a half-black, half Nigerian woman myself, I relate. :-) I saw the bit when her girlfriend met her mom and she mentioned her learning the proper way to greet elders. My mouth fell open. It took me back to whenever I encountered my paternal grandmother. Down on your knees you go (til I developed arthritis).

    I don't know about others, but I would love to see more shows about all the diverse cultures. I don't have enough money to travel the world, so sitcoms and dramas would be welcome. I cannot understand how no one would pick up shows like gina's. there's people out there who want to watch that! who would want to watch 'friends' all day?! I already loved gloria calderon kellet's 'one day at a time' about a cuban american family and am heartbroken that it didn't get picked up for a 5th season. I will definitely check out gina's show!

    Trevor Noah when are you going to talk about the racist things Judge Joe Brown heard Joe Biden say? Now text messages from Hunter Biden are also surfacing showing he’s also used racial slurs? I’ll take a wild guess and say you won’t. Hypocrite.
