If these people are in any way representative of the black community then we are making progress in race relations.

What Would Yahweh Do

My thoughts exactly.

I feel like a jerk suspecting that they were all actors.

Even if they were all actors, the point is still being made, the challenge to an embedded way of thinking is still there. But I don't think script writers would have picked out those different reasons for challenging bias.

That is almost as wicked as telling your readers that there is no Santa Clause. I hope you are wrong.

Very moving. Although, I feel like a jerk wondering how this piece was edited. Surely the skit was performed more than 4 times.

Why are interracial couples never shown as AA females and Cauc males?Racism!

I think they were all actors, and I don't at all feel like a jerk for thinking it. It's television. That means it's almost certainly 100% fake. Look at all the different camera-shots, the lighting. I call bullshit on the whole thing.

Wildswan, they could be actors without a script.

I had 40 years of racial harmony in my working life. In a manufacturing company. The company hired from an ethnically diverse community and promoted from within. It was more fun than you could shake a stick at when some mookie from the state showed up to audit us for the non-existent quotas we weren't required to meet. And none of s were actors.
