Leftists seem obsessed with race. We say “seem” because discussions of racism fall out of their mouths like word vomit. Or actual vomit, depending on your outlook on any given day. Well, to be fair, they talk about racism when they’re not talking about gay or transgender issues. Like how you’re a horrible person for wanting penis-packing dudes to keep their winkles in the men’s room. How dare you.
Anyway, you remember leftists’ shock when some members of black Hollywood didn’t give two craps about the manufactured outrage of #OscarsSoWhite (see Ice Cube Slams Race-Baiting Whiners Boycotting The Oscars and Jamie Foxx Issues Perfect Smackdown on Oscar Boycotters…)? This story follows a similar pattern.
Turns out you and I are not the only ones sick and tired of all this “diversity” and “racism” talk 24/7. Also tired over everything having to always be black and white, or even black vs white? The cast of the TV show ‘Black-ish.’
“I will be so happy when diversity is not a word. I have the best job in the world and I am constantly having to talk about diversity. I have the best actors. It’s ridiculous,” he said, carefully crafting his reply. “We’re in a time when everything is about black and white, and this and that. We get opportunities and we are happy to be the people who can step up and say, ‘We can do this.’ But these are amazing actors. It doesn’t matter who is watching our show. The fact is that they’re watching it.”
He went on to point out that he gets questions like this one often — and frankly, he’s fed up. “I feel like every question at every panel… I’m so tired of talking about diversity. These are amazing, talented actors and amazing writers who give their all … and it’s clouding the conversation.”
Series star Tracee Ellis Ross, seated next to her co-star Anthony Anderson on the panel, then stepped in to ask the reporter, “Is that a question that you’ve asked other shows that are not predominantly of a certain color?” When the writer responded “not necessarily,” Ellis politely offered this to the room full of press: “I think sometimes that those questions continue the conversation in a direction that does not help the conversation.”
Exactly. People, particularly leftists, will say they won’t be happy until no one sees color. Then they constantly go out of their way to only see color. To bring it up at each and every opportunity. Forgetting the content of the story, forgetting the content of character. With leftists, it’s race all the time. Their TV channels are set permanently on Diversity USA. While screaming at you for your obvious racism.
And let’s not confuse ourselves, none of the actors or creators are going to be at a Trump rally any time soon. They were certainly never at a Ted Cruz rally. Black-ish tackled a ton of issues on the show that we tackle here, but from the other side of the aisle. But they also do it in the same vein that All in the Family did, by laughing at stereotypes – including their own – the same way every other show laughs at stereotypes. Great actors plus great writing creates really smart, witty satire.
Maybe talk about the merits of a show? Focus on what makes a show a success, not about a SJW cause? I’m just tossing out suggestions here. For you media types who delude themselves into thinking they’re “color blind.”
Because you know the next question is going to be, “Do you think Black-ish is black enough?”
