Racism In The Zombie Apocalypse
Recently I have had the privilege of viewing two hilarious and clever comedy sketches inspired by the AMC hit television series The Walking Dead. The first one below debuted on Saturday Night Live a couple of weeks ago but since I don't have television I saw it on Hulu a few days later. In it we see an alternate scene in which fun is poked at the topic of black-instigated guilt-manipulation based upon imagined or outright false allegations of racism in order to intimidate whites. In the scene below that we see a comedy sketch by Comedy Central's Key & Peele poking fun at deeply-ingrained suburban white racial hang-ups about blacks as well as at black stereotypes of the nature of suburban whites as it relates to perceived racist attitudes.
