Don't make me laugh, non-white comedians: A podcast review.

910jeffdorchen

For one thing, I'm too white and under-educated to understand what was actually going on in that episode, and for another I don't really have to answer to anybody, because I'm also not getting paid, and because of the white privilege thing which I'd be a fool not to take advantage of in this case. Who's gonna stop me? A couple of non-white comedians? Don't make me laugh, non-white comedians. Okay, make me laugh. You're comedians! It's in the job description. Prisoners of your identities. It'd be tragic if it weren't so comedic.

In a five-star rated and reviewed Moment of Truth, Jeff Dorchen listens to W. Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu's Politically Reactive podcast, figures out what words to use and what words to avoid while recommending a podcast on race and class to TIH! listeners, and stumbles into a new, profoundly Dolezalian perspective on Bell's temporary whiteness and Kondabolu's Jewish potential.
