I have been thinking about how to more fully respond to this, off and on for the past couple days. I didn't just want to be snarky, and give you a serious response, because I think you're being earnest, and you're not a horrible monster like Essay.

Thanks for the response. He has definitely dated white girls, since he's married to one of the main white chicks in Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

I didn't view anything about Get Out to be liberal/conservative. Sure, the dad mentioned he would have voted for Obama, but I think that could be viewed as any of the hundreds of lies he told and not specific to a "liberal bubble" or whatever.

I definitely appreciated the subtle racism throughout and explained it to the kids that watched it with me. (i.e. Mentioning Tiger Woods, Jesse Owens, Obama, etc) I enjoyed that part, and it you think the end was just standard horror movie fare, I'll believe you. That's just not how I received it.

do you think it would be too unrealistic if the fictional first woman Governor of California was also openly a Lesbian ?

No. That would make perfect sense.

However, what would not make sense is different gangs of gay people/women running the Baltimore drug market. Is this because lesbians are inferior? No. Is this because no one in the drug market is currently gay? Obviously not.

Also, for the record, I have no problem with gay characters. I have a problem when they are shoehorned into the story for no reason, especially when its illogical and not reality.

Like Omar in The Wire.

Speaking of adultry, I just finished Curb season 9 and Jeff's adultry continues to be my least favorite thing on the show, because I like Jeff, but am super annoyed that he cheats on his wife. (Even though his wife is a... well, you know)

I did think it was interesting that they had only been dating 4 months and it seemed total normal for them to share a room at mom and dads. But I understand the world has passed me by in that arena.
