New promo for 302!! Thanks grelca for spending an hour at a truckstop in Mississippi trying to get it for us!!
This is SUPER funny and I laughed out loud at my workplace, but it also makes me crazy sad, thinking back to dating white guys/non-black POCs and the worry and stress and apprehension involved in meeting the parents because of racism/black hate. It also reminded me of the time I as unasked to be a bridesmaid because the groom’s family “just wouldn’t understand” me being up there/in the pictures, so anyway, yeah, this is funny, but it’s also a shitty-ass reality for a lot of black/brown folks dating, and even just befriending, out here interracially, hardee-har-har.
I think that’s the beauty of it, for me. Mindy has always been good at speaking from her own perspective, and being thought to be the ‘cleaning lady’ is her reality too. Yeah, she’s mining it for comedy because that’s the show (and who she is), but I bet the heart of this episode will be in Mindy’s real, justifiable fear that she won’t be accepted.
