David Cole tries to get some super urgent flight information from an airline employee named (probably) “LaKarsha”.
(BUT also includes bonus dirt on L.A. Israelis, so keep reading!)
In life, sometimes we arrive at certain prejudices honestly, by keeping our eyes open, by examining our experiences, and by playing the odds. Today’s left does everything it can to bully white folks into ignoring their gut instincts, while, conversely, “people of color” are encouraged to judge white folks on sight (they’re privileged, they’ve had it easy in life, they spend all their time appropriating other cultures and hating anyone who doesn’t look like them).
Somewhere in between ignoring our prejudicial instincts and dwelling on them is a happy medium. Perhaps that’s the “mild racism” Louis C.K. was referring to, and perhaps it’s not such a bad thing.
When I recounted the story of my conversation with LaKarsha to my youthful ward, she shook her head in disdain. “Why the hell didn’t you hang up? You wasted 15 minutes of your life because you thought you had something to prove to an affirmative-action hire.” I’ve read that “Generation Z” has strong conservative tendencies, and if my own firsthand experience means anything, I believe it.
