If you’re American, just believe that you’re racist. Seriously. You might not be a bigot…but you’re still racist. And even if you don’t think you are…really, it’s safer just to believe it anyway.
It’s not your fault, though, and nothing to feel guilty about; you can’t be held responsible for mammalian tribalism, a lifetime’s worth of media stereotypes, or the fact that American culture is still adapting to integration. But, that doesn’t mean those things don’t affect you, or that they can’t lead to some pretty embarrassing social situations. And in those moments where you “just kind of weren’t thinking,” what you need most is…RACISM INSURANCE!
Unlike most indie films, “Dear White People” has a real chance of becoming a legit cultural touchstone. It hasn’t gone to nationwide theaters just yet, but already the story of a small group of black students on an Ivy League campus is hitting home in the Supreme Court’s “Post-Racial” America.
But, unfortunately, we’re not all as Post-Racial as we’d like to be; that’s why the makers of Dear White People have released this short promo for maybe the best service ever. During those socially awkward moments, where being a white American means saying something really stupid to black people, you need only sing the Racism Insurance jingle. From thin air, your Agent will appear to apologize for your ignorance, and explain what you really meant. Just remember what your policy covers.
No, it’s not cheap…but paying for Racism Insurance sure beats getting jumped by a bunch of thugs.
Oh, crap. Uhhh…do the jingle! DO THE JINGLE!
