Overheard at Table 3: Colin Through a Glass, Dimly

Just saw the first four episodes of Colin in Black and White.

How is it?

Well, I know it's from his memories, so it's GOT to be the truth, right, but damn, he makes northern California in the aughts look like Tulsa Oklahoma in the 80s!  I mean, seriously are we to believe that during the Dubya Bush years that a brown high school kid with his white middle-aged parents standing RIGHT BESIDE HIM are going to have a hotel clerk ask them if they are feeling in any danger?

Well, its his memories, might have happened.  Lots of brown kids get accosted ... and killed all the time.

Still, it just seemed like all the brown characters had depth and all the white characters were stereotypes.

Maybe if whites weren't such stereotypes themselves, they would be portrayed as so milky white and pasty all the time.

Sounds like you would really like the show
