This show's pretty fun to listen to, but this episode was about as silly as it gets for "but this has to be racist somehow".

 

aaaaa I bet I'm not the first person to ever say that.

I thought Anita Van Buren and Lynne Thigpen were the same person for years

It's a direct denial of what the police are. These days people will accept the police are corrupt, but they still won't make movies about how they're racist.

Really? I feel like approximately half the depictions of cops in TV and movies portray them as being at least vaguely racist.

I'm thinking of cop shows and procedurals where it's about cops and there would be a police chief. The great sin of a cop is to take mob money and look the other way, not shoot a shouting, mentally ill old black man who didn't hurt anyone 20 times with a gun to death for no reason, or what have you.
