Three-on-three basketball hadn't even debuted yet, and the league already had its first "Kaepernick." He's retired NBA player Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, and Mark Spears of The Undefeated (ESPN satellite blogsite) calls him "the most surprising player suiting up."
In a show that has already stunned and offended many, Monday night’s season finale of Lucifer on Fox ended with more of the same insulting anti-Christian agenda and Biblically inaccurate storyline that it’s been pushing on viewers from the start.
The season finale of Fox’s race-baiting drama, Shots Fired, “Hour 10: Last Dance,” continued with its black=good, white=bad theme as it ended with this conclusion: it’s always about race. Wednesday night’s resolution was completely predictable. The black police officer, who was justified in killing unarmed white teenager Jesse Carr, is indicted. But there is no indictment for the wealthy white man who killed unarmed black teenager Joey Campbell.
The first of two Family Guy episodes that aired on Sunday night, “Dearly Deported,” played both sides of the immigration debate and threw in a random swipe at President Trump and his daughter Ivanka for good measure.
Wednesday night's episode of Fox's Shots Fired, "Hour 9: Come to Jesus," continued to build on its storyline in which wealthy white donors are furnished with guns and tasers – as part of the "Tours" program—and take part in ride-alongs with racist police in the fictional town of Gate Station, North Carolina. To recap, a wealthy white donor executed black teenager Joey Campbell while he was helpless, on the ground, and crying for his mother. What else would you expect from a wealthy white man armed with a gun? In tonight's episode, we learn that the wealthy white donor – who also happens to be building a private prison (classic!) – thought he was taking out his taser, intending only to stun the boy. Instead, he slaughters the poor youth.
A new Miss USA was crowned on Sunday night on FOX, but it wasn’t without some political controversy. Miss District of Columbia Kara McCullough won the title, much to the chagrin of liberals who didn’t like her conservative answers in the question rounds. Her thought crimes? Saying health care is a privilege, not a right, and rejecting man-hating feminism in favor of equal opportunity.
Wednesday night’s episode of Fox’s Shots Fired, “Hour 8: Rock Bottom,” took aim at police officers, again, making them out to be corrupt, greedy white men out to get black people. After Pastor Janae is arrested for the murder of black teenager Joey Campbell, she is questioned by main characters Special Prosecutor Preston Terry (Stephen James) and Investigator Ashe Akino (Sanaa Lathan). While it’s becoming clear that the white, racist police officers at the station are clearly using her as a cover-up, Pastor Janae makes a pointed comment about policing in general.
Wednesday night’s episode of Fox’s newest racially obsessed drama Shots Fired, “Hour 7: Content of Their Character,” took a short break from race-baiting to highlight the unnecessary destruction that comes from riots like Ferguson and Baltimore. In the wake of violent demonstrations in Gate Station, DOJ Special Prosecutor Preston Terry (Stephen James) becomes disheartened at the sight of the devastation of his kind friend’s restaurant. He states the obvious regarding the destructive riots: “I don't know what's supposed to be gained by all this.”
It’s an irony the late liberal comic might appreciate. “George Carlin’s infamous comedy routine about the seven words you can’t say on television is still an unofficial guideline the FCC uses to determine whether language is in violation of Federal Indecency laws,” according to Parents Television Council President Tim Winter.
Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine is usually one of the funniest shows in the humor wasteland of political correctness, but I guess it couldn’t last. The most recent episode decided to take a more serious and pointedly less funny approach to talk about racial profiling. Who knew that sitcoms weren’t the best places for one-sided racial politics?
I have to give it to The Simpsons on this one. They know when something is clearly past its time. This week’s episode of the Fox sitcom tackles two things that just didn’t die fast enough: the Pokémon Go fad and Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
