TV Gets Woke: How Scripted Series Are Confronting Social Issues Like Never Before:

Reggie Bythewood’s grandfather was a police officer who taught him how to drive. He also gave him “the talk.”

“That’s what to do and what not to do when a racist police officer pulls you over,” explains Bythewood, a writer and producer whose films include “Notorious” and “Get on the Bus.” “Stay calm,” he recalls. “Repeat the officer’s name. No sudden moves.”

So responsible father figures in the black community tell kids the exact same thing responsible father figures in the white community do -of course in the case of the latter nobody is getting a tv show out of it, but then again no one said the world was fair.

My favorite TV show is Last Man Standing.
Tim Allen isn’t scared to put out a Conservative message. His big problem in the show, is with the exception of his youngest daughter, Eve, he is surrounded by leftard family members. The worst, and most annoying are his oldest daughter, and her totally jackass husband.

I love the relationship between Tim and the black neighbor. They go at it tooth and nail and you can tell they secretly like each other.

I think you told us about this show a few years ago. On your recommendation I started watching. I love it too. Went back on demand since episode one. His wife is more independent thinking, but she has leftist sensitivities, she is not that bad. Mandy is a dumbass she just goes with what is popular, once she is out in the world and taxation becomes truly oppressive, we’ll see. The eldest is incredible she isn’t more moderate at least… considering all she went through… she’s getting there I think. Eve is changing… I don’t like her story arc.

The atheist husband is annoying af…

Well, we will see about Eve. I wasn’t too happy about her foray into playing guitar and not going to college, but now that she’s been accepted to the Air Force Academy, I think she’ll get back on track.
I wouldn’t be too upset to see Ryan (the eldest’s annoying husband) drive off a cliff.

Kyle is also annoying but tolerable. Ryan is living off his wife an is entitled little shit.

Kyle’s crime is being dumb, Ryan is a self righteous, smug, POS.

Nobody told me any of this when I came to this country to live, but I have never been shot by the cops, or arrested or whatever… sometimes common sense and the need to survive by not pissing off someone official with a gun takes over without previous advice.

Also racist police officer? So we are JUST assuming that a police officer is racist right out of the bat? Wow that is GREAT advice there… :-/

The worst “racist” cops, according to the left, are the black ones, that are more likely to shoot a thug than a white cop.

And of course there are “NO” racists in any of the minority communities….Just ask Obama…

Only minority fathers assume the cop is racist just because he’s a cop. Doesn’t matter if same race as you. He’s wearing a uniform, so he’s not a real (insert race here).
