Freeform’s “sitcom” grown-ish aired the second largest of their two-part BLM-themed episodes on Thursday, and it was just as horrific as the first. This time they focused on woke( thrash ?) words such as “white fragility, ” continued to depict the police as remorseless bullies out to hurt black people, and justified and compiled daylight of looting, rampaging and arson.
Thursday’s episode, “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See, ” picks back up in the aftermath of two innocent, young blacknes somebodies separately being slaughtered by the police, one in cold blood, a situation unlike any championed by BLM.( In fact, Variety pointed out the storyline was inspired by George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, even though Arbery wasn’t even killed by police .)
The show’s main characters are on the streets to protest the murders and are soon told that a curfew came into effect and will be enforced by law. Several of the friends decide to go home, but a few agree to defy the law and go further into the city of L.A. because they want to be surrounded by more people.
Back at home, Jazz( Chloe Bailey) is getting text modernizes from her friends on which enterprises are being looted. Nomi( Emily Arlook ), who is Jewish, observes, “burning and looting people’s places should certainly not be a part of this.”
Even though there’s a propagandize to recognize and support black-owned occupations across the country right now, Jazz and Zoey( Yara Shahidi) attack the plundering, arson and rampaging, going so far as to say that a family member wouldn’t have a problem with his small business being burnt down:
Nomi: Okay, I’m not worried about him the demolition of quality, okay? But, come on. The looting and burning of people’s ventures is not gonna help viewed prejudiced patrolmen accountable.
Zoey: Of trend it’s not gonna assist impound them accountable, because good-for-nothing accommodates them accountable. That’s exactly why this is happening. It’s the last resort for people who have just been neglected for too long. Martin even was pointed out that riotings are the language of the unheard.
Jazz: Okay, Coretta. Looks like Aaron’s been sufficing you the “D” and that knowledge.
Nomi: Alright, search. I apparently understand that human life is more valuable than owned. I precisely — I don’t know. I feel sorry for the small business owners who improved their livelihoods from nothing, and now some opportunistics are using this man’s death as an excuse to destroy that.
Jazz: Okay. My dad built one of those small and medium-sized companies, but when it comes to saving black animations, best trust Kermit wouldn’t mind getting his food truck destroyed. So, if something needs to get burned down or get looted to shake things up, then so be it.
Nomi: I don’t know. I’m just amazed. So, you guys are cool, then, with the looting and rioting?
Zoey: Not cool with it, but you choosing to focus on the looting and rioting is a part of a longstanding history of prejudiced recollecting.
Nomi: Hold on, Zoey. “Racist thinking? ” So, you’re calling me a racist? Are you kidding me?
When Nomi continues to express her incredulity over being called racist, Jazz and Zoey try to claim they didn’t announce her racist, they are only wanted she “had some racist thinking.” Nomi reasonably points out, “So, my think is prejudiced, which represents I reckon prejudiced things about people based on their skin color, which is literally the definitions contained in has become a racist.”
Zoey wokesplains to Nomi, “Again , no…But choosing to criticize the channel suppressed people are reacting to their oppression versus blaming the oppression itself is a part of the problem.” Except that Nomi was doing both. Sooo … ??
Jazz accuses Nomi of “seriously( being) on some white insecurity shit, ” which precedes Nomi to declare that she’s done with the conversation. But, unfortunately for Nomi, that’s a problem, very. “Just so you know, ” Jazz affirms, “you’ being done’ with this conversation instead of recognizing your participation in the problem is the exact definition of lily-white fragility.”
Zoey tells Nomi the only reason they’re “calling( her) on this, ” is because they affection her. Nomi then says, “If I was with someone who I thought was homophobic or anti-Semitic, I wouldn’t be sitting here trying to move them feel right. In fact, I wouldn’t be friends with them at all.” The conversation is interrupted when Jazz gets another text update on the looting and quips, “Looks like they’re about to made the Barnes& Noble at The Grove. Anybody want that new Zane? ” Haha?
After Nomi has a phone conversation with her mom to complain about how she’s being treated, her mom tries to reassure her by disclose her she was raised not to see color. When Nomi says that not visualizing dye is “basically saying that you don’t learn someone in their integrity, and that’s actually pretty problematic.” her baby does defensive, and Nomi ends up recognizing herself in her mother’s reaction. That’s the moment Nomi sees the woke sun and realizes she’s been wrong all along:
Jazz: Gapes like they are only made the Brookstone in West Hollywood. How long do you think it’s gonna take for us to got to get? You know I’m a sucker for modern gadgetry.
Nomi: Hey. Um, I owe you guys a really, really big apology.
Jazz: Well, if you’re talking about reparations, you can just Cash App me.
Nomi: Um, you guys were right. I was surely promoted to see the world in a very specific way, and I’ll never ascertain the world like you guys do. No content how radical my environment or how expanded my point of view is, I’ll always have some kind of blinders on. And I’m truly, really sorry.
Zoey: Well, we appreciate it. And it’s all good. You know we love you, but most importantly, thank you for hearing us.
Nomi: Yeah. Yeah. I love you guys.
Jazz: Oh, come here.
Zoey( voiceover ): As the country lastly encountered its blind spot, we were also forced to take notice of our own. The one thing we have been able to do was progressing well with our eyes open in an effort to be better people to those around us and hope that the rest of the country would eventually do the same.
As for my best friend who decided to break curfew and join in the city-wide demonstrates where looting, rioting and arson are happening all around them, after being counselled the curfew would be enforced by law, they find themselves appalled that…the curfew was enforced by law. Instead of realizing they made a bad decision, they claim innocence and victimhood and placed the condemn on the police:
Luca: What happened?
Aaron: She was teargassed again.
Luca: Oh, my God. Are you okay? Can you open your eyes?
Luca: What can I do?
Kiela: Nothing. Just give me a minute, please.
Luca: There’s got to be something I can do to help. I really want to make sure you’re okay.
Kiela: No, I’m not okay. I’m really — I’m not. This is just all so messed up. How does something like this even happen? You know, I’m now affirming police inhumanity, and then I get demoralized by the police? It only — It doesn’t make sense. You know, I don’t even know what we did wrong.
Luca: It’s not your omission. You didn’t do anything wrong.
I witness them bloom For me and you And I think to myself What a wonderful world
The demo ends with Zoey reading the book White Fragility by Robin Diangelo because she didn’t know what it was as Jazz is splayed out on the couch enjoy misappropriate electronic goods that her friends looted.
They actually have a lot of nerve playing cute with such a serious matter, especially when BLM looting led to the murder of a well-respected black man, David Dorn. If they absolutely want to present “all sides” and believe that black animations interest, why didn’t they create a storyline about Dorn’s tragic murder over a pilfer television set? Those looters weren’t annoyed scapegoats who were tired of not heard something, as this occurrence claimed about looters in general. They were criminal opportunistics who cared more about scoring a television set than they did about a pitch-black live. To illustrate looters as victims and make light of looting just goes to show how changed liberal wokeness really is.
Let’s exactly hope this is the last of the laughable radical castigates and woke morality signaling that will be jostle down our throats now that this story arc is over.
