The Dao of racism

The eternal spiral of racism and anti-racism consumes everyone in time:

The creator and executive producer of the CBS drama All Rise once promised his show would combat racism in the justice system. Now, he’s been fired for ignoring cries of racism in the workplace.

“Warner Bros. Television has relieved ‘All Rise’ executive producer Greg Spottiswood of his duties, effective immediately,” the studio said in a statement to Deadline.

Spottiswood allegedly ignored complaints about racial insensitivity, with most of those complaints reportedly being filed from the show’s writers room.

Writers had become critical of Spotiswood for what they deemed to be stereotypical dialogue and plots centered on lead character Judge Lola Carmichael, played by Simone Missick, and other minority characters.

“We had to do so much behind the scenes to keep these scripts from being racist and offensive,” writer Shernold Edwards told The New York Times.

It’s probably safest to do all-Asian shows these days. For now. This won’t stop until the woketroopers are shooting everyone with glasses for racism and the survivors beg for the ultras to stop them.
