This chubby black guy, Al Jackson, is not only full of Doritos, he’s full of himself. His ego outpaces his intellect to the point of farce. I had a moment when I thought I might be watching satire. All the components were there. But sadly, no. This was real.
The big-brained panel of THE DAILY BLAST were going to wade into the Serena Williams cartoon controversy. Was it racist???
(As a sidebar, I just want to put up this jpeg I made with Serena Williams’ actual mouth on the cartoon.
There. That’s my contribution to that particular discussion. Take it or leave it.)
The black panelist, Al Jackson, uses the moment as an opportunity to launch into a hateful diatribe towards the lone straight, white male conservative on the panel.
To prove the notion of “white privilege” Jackson cites the low number of the white guy’s Twitter and Instagram followers. He says that he has friends with higher numbers and they aren’t on the show, but the white guy with low numbers is.
I was actually embarrassed for the black guy when he said this. Particularly since he only has 35K Twitter followers. By his own juvenile logic he should be off the show and replaced with a white guy who has 36K twitter followers, no?
I’ll ask you this, and this is going to sound like a shot but it’s not. You’re on a social media show and you have a hundred Twitter followers. You have a thousand Instagram followers. I have 30,000. I have a master’s in biomedical sciences. I have over 200 TV appearances. You are the living embodiment of white privilege. You have no business on this panel with us, but you’re here because of your privilege. I have hundreds of black people, brown people in my phone that are more qualified, have done more in their career to deserve to be in that seat. But you sit there, because of your white privilege.
What a moron.
He then goes on to say
I don’t want to talk to you because I don’t want to normalize you and your hate speech. Me working with you will be the biggest regret of my career.
The soccer moms on the panel do their best to be self-loathing empaths, gladly willing to be painted as society’s evil, complete with nauseating “concern faces” and “concern voices” as they assist an angry racist black guy in the demonizing of white people.
You can watch the video here. (My apologies for the title of the video, made by a filthy-mouthed moron.)
I wish I was on the panel with this idiot while he was leveraging the Serena Williams cartoon in an attempt to create larger divisions among the races.
I’d simply ask if there was time to bring Serena’s husband into the discussion.
