NBC Comedy: ‘All White Guys Insensitive,’ ‘Brainwashed by White-Run Media’

Lindsay Kornick, News Busters, April 12, 2018

NBC’s new comedy Champions already had a swing and a miss regarding feminism. Now it’s back trying to deal with the topic of diversity. And by talking about diversity, I am of course referring to the shaming of white people. Unfortunately to some liberals, that’s the same thing.

The April 12 episode “Vincemas” has Vince (Anders Holm) and his brother Matthew (Andy Favreau) planning for their annual camping trip until they learn that Vince’s son Michael (J. J. Totah) is having trouble making friends at his new school. At both Vince and Matthew’s advice, Michael reaches out to one group during lunch to boost his image. The first group that accepts Michael just happens to be the Indian students club who welcome him due to his half-Indian heritage. {snip}

To try to make up for his ignorance, Vince goes to his employees for advice, only to be told more or less the same thing.

Vince: Hey, guys, you’re never gonna believe what Michael accused me of last night.

Britney: Wearing the same jeans for too long between washes? We’ve all noticed.

Vince: He said I was culturally insensitive. That’s crazy, right?

Bud: Look, truth be told, when I wanted to take Columbus Day off to celebrate my Italian roots, you–you laughed right in my face.

Vince: Come on, in New York, Italian’s not an ethnicity. It’s, like, normal.

Britney: You just called Italian normal, like everyone else isn’t normal. Am I not normal, Vince?

Ruby: No one’s calling you a racist. They’re just saying you’re being insensitive, like a–like a patriotic grandparent.

Shabaz: Look. All white guys are a little bit insensitive. But it’s not your fault. You’ve been brainwashed by the white-run media. And it’s not just them. It’s the government; it’s school systems. In some ways, you’re the real victim.

There you have it, white people. We are all insensitive, because somehow the liberal media is brainwashing us to be that way, and there is apparently nothing we can do about it. If only we didn’t commit the mortal sin of being born with less melanin in our skin, then we wouldn’t need to be constantly reminded how awful we are. Alas, that’s the bulk of most “comedy” these days.
