The liberal ABC-Disney Television Network generated outrage during its televised coverage of the Houston Texans’ victory over the Oakland Raiders Saturday night in the Wild Card round of the AFC Playoffs, but it had nothing to do with the football. Instead many viewers were annoyed at a promo for next Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s sitcom Black-ish, which features a predominantly African-American cast being decidedly anti-Trump in tone and nature. In the promo, which bills the episode as the “election through the eyes of Black-ish”, Lucy (a white character played by Christine Reitman) tells her predominantly African-American co-workers: “I voted for Trump!” before adding the clichéd justification, “I’m a racist? I have black friends!” In another scene, her colleague Daphne (Wanda Sykes) appears to kick out at her for merely expressing that she had chosen to cast her vote for the Republican Party. Meanwhile the show’s protagonists Dre and Rainbow Johnson are seen looking crestfallen at the outcome of the election while in another scene Rainbow shouts “Go Hillary!” The promo announcer goes on to promise: “Oh they’ll be tweeting about this one!” People already are tweeting about the episode before it’s being aired but it’s not what ABC– owned by Disney– wants to read. Football fans are objecting to Trump voters being ridiculed in such a tiresome and predictable fashion. “Why does the NFL keep playing an anti-Trump commercial for the terrible show Blackish?” wrote one tweeter. “They must not know their audience”. Another viewer fumed: “I am offended at the preview for the show #blackish about voting for Trump makes you a racist!” Matt Falk tweeted: “No one watch #blackish. Not everyone who voted for Trump is a racist, That show caters to the lowest common denominator” while Steve James declared on the online social networking service: “Man, Blackish looks so original! A Trump voter isn’t racist because she has black friends! Can’t wait to never watch a second of that show.” It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that Trump will weigh in on Twitter with his thoughts about Black-ish in the next few days. After all in October 2014, the President-Elect tweeted: “How is ABC Television allowed to have a show entitled “Blackish”? Can you imagine the furor of a show, “Whiteish”! Racism at highest level?”
Exactly!!! The President-Elect is spot on, and rightly calling out ABC/Disney on their stunning liberal hypocrisy. It’s SO refreshing to see a high-level political figure calling out the hypocrisy of political correctness. To liberals having a show called “Black-ish” or even a network called BLACK Entertainment Television (BET) is NOT somehow inherently racist. Just fathom if there was show called “White-ish” or a network called “White Entertainment Television?” First of all, the media wouldn’t allow for it’s existence. But, if it did.. Boy howdy how there would be riots, protests, marches and all the rest of that crap. Such a double standard. Thank God Trump is willing to call it out for what it is…and is saying what all of these NFL viewers are Tweeting and posting on FaceBook. They’re sick and tired of this nonsense being thrown in their face, and being told they’re racists for voting for the white Republican male, instead of the white Democrat female. EPSN and other sports networks have been doing the same thing…and THAT is why their ratings are in the toilet. Fans have had enough of it.
