Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah gave an impassioned speech on Thursday night’s episode of “The Daily Show” in the wake of the police-involved killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

“It always feels like, in America, if you take a stand for something, you automatically are against something else,” Noah said, going on to detail how people choose between dogs or cats, the Yankees or the Red Sox.
“You can be pro-cop and pro-black,” Noah said. “It’s what we should all be. It’s what we should be aiming for. You shouldn’t have to choose between the police and the citizens they are sworn to protect.”
