Quotes

Franklin Montague: Paper Boi, isn't a lack of a father the reason you hate transpeople?
Alfred 'Paper Boi' Miles: What? Lack of a father? Man, you hear yourself? Shut up. Man, here's the thing.Man, I it's hard for me to care about this when nobody cares about me as a black human man, you feel me? Like, Caitlyn Jenner is just doing what rich white men been doing since the dawn of time, which is whatever the hell he want.

Comedic criticism of entertainment industry
11 July 2017 | by anelarodriuezSee all my reviews

This show so far has been showing us, quite incredibly, the magical realism, the nihilistic parables, and the fuc53d up reality we have gotten out of our highly commercialized information age. As a student of ethics, social justice, and gender studies, I had some problems with this episode at first: I didn't enjoy every joke or understand every critical moment pursued. Yet I think this episode was depicting really well how people are isolated into tiny little boxes - of identity. And when we try to push those boundaries things get extremely difficult, if not entirely awkward.

For some of us, it is harder or even impossible to transcend out of the boxes we were forced into when they are limiting, demoralizing, or even oppressive, or we may just not even want to or never even though about it that way. For example, perhaps like many of us, you don't want to change your race simply because you get discriminated by cops/white people, you just want cop/whites to stop discriminating against/killing people of color. As a queer woman of color, I thought I would not like this episode while I started watching, but I was pleasantly supersized when I realized the sharp witted and brilliant commentary the episode was making.

Plus, the commercials in the BAN network were some of the best moments in TV - period.

9.5 for sure!
