the racism on big brother. Jack had an irrational psychotic hatred for kemi which at the very LEAST was partially fueled by racism. He constantly made gorilla jokes and had to be reprimanded by the diary room every other day so that it didnt escalate to an aaryn level.
literally 3/4 of the people sent to segregation were the dark skinned people and ALL the dark skinned people were the first 3 out.
yes the racism might not be all as blatant as jack but reality tv in general highlights those more subtle influences and when in big brother when the cast is largely white mactor-esque people with a few token others thrown plus the availability of live feeds that "other-ism" is MUCH more apparent sometimes to a shocking extent.
A couple of weeks ago I was at work during a Saturday brunch. During saturday brunches theres live music at my restaurant and the band plays extremely stripped down acoustic covers of old ass songs... super boring. One day the band came in with an additional female member with a pink guitar I thought to myself "oh that's cute" and went about my day.
All of a sudden a song started playing that was not a part of their normal set and it struck me as odd. The inside of my restaurant has HORRIBLE acoustics so i could hardly even make out the words they were singing. When I was at a table outside however the music was much more clear... the song was SUPER familiar and all of a sudden it CLICKED and i audibly gasped.
I immediately ran back to the kitchen where this queen is on the salad station accompanied by a busser. I go "omg do you know what song is playing?!?!" to which they respond with "no what is it". I go "Its Cinderella by the Cheetah Girls!!" and they both laughed as we realized that the current song was indeed a bop.
So yea my gayness was put to the TEST in that scenario and needless to say I passed
