The Daily Show host devoted a segment to the 27-year-old black Atlanta man who was shot and killed over the weekend while running away from cops. "People always say the same thing," said Noah at the end of his emotional monologue. "They go, 'Well if you didn't do that, then you would still be alive.' They say this sh*t all the time: 'If you didn't do that.' But the truth is, the ifs keep on changing. 'If you didn't resist arrest you would still be alive.' Or, 'If you didn't run away from the cops you would still be alive. Well, if you didn't have a toy gun and were 12 years old in the middle of the park, then you would have still been alive. Well, you know what, if you weren't wearing a hoodie you would have still been alive. Well, you know, if you didn't talk back to the cops you would have still been alive. If you weren't sleeping in your bed as a black woman, you would have still been alive.' There's one common thread beyond all the ifs. If you weren't black, maybe you'd still be alive."
