Pardon me, I don’t want to make a fuss or anything, but didn’t we figure out all of this racism stuff last year? I mean, Michael Brown was a big deal, and we all went through it, and now isn’t it time we moved past it? Right? Like, season 2 of True Detective just ended and no one wants to talk about it, they just want to talk about cop shootings and protests. You know True Detective has those things, plus like, hot people and hookers. I swear, if I have to have my Hyundai Sonata’s window smashed one more time, I’M going to protest.

If you ask me this racism thing is a little overplayed. I mean, I’m white, but I don’t need everyone knowing about it. Seems like it would be easier for everyone if we just stopped talking about it for a few years. Like how my Dad suppresses his anger about my Mom and her new boyfriend Brock. If we ignore it long enough, it will go away. And if not, we can use booze to suppress the emotions. But protesting? I mean, it’s a little 1960s if you ask me, and—apparently—that didn’t do much for us, so let’s get over this racism thing and move on. The new fall season of TV is about to premiere and I’m really excited for the Muppets show. I don’t need any breaking news interruptions. You can’t DVR through those!

So, let’s all agree once and for all, this racism thing is over. No more racism. Easy enough, right? SHARE this and spread the word, dude. Really appreciated!
