White Man’s Burden 2.0

Oh man, do you guys remember that movie starring John Travolta and Sidney PoitierHarry Belafonte? In which the conceit was just “wouldn’t it be crazy if racism happened to white people instead of black people”? Because the only way to make the sheeple understand that racism is awful is to see it happen to John Travolta. “Wait a second, it turns out our historical reliance on the systemic subjugation of minorities is OUTRAGEOUS! Thank you, movie made for third-graders!” That movie was the worst. Unlike this video, which is the best. (Same basic plot, though, probably.)
