ABC Enrages NFL Viewers With Anti-Trump ‘Black-ish’ Promo During ESPN Coverage of NFL Wild Card Game Between Texans and Raiders
AND YOU WONDER WHY ESPN IS HEMORRHAGING VIEWERS?
What else would one expect from the liberal ABC-Disney Television Network? The powers that be thought it a brilliant marketing move to run a promo of the TV sit-com ‘Blackish’ which bills the episode as the “election through the eyes of Black-ish.” They ran the promo during Saturday night’s telecast of the Wild Card game between the Houston Texans and the Oakland Raiders. Yes, that is correct, there actually is a TV show called “Blackish”. I know, you are asking yourself where the show “Whitish” is? C’mon man, you know that would be racist. The liberal media continues their political bias and just cannot accept the loss. How many weeks has it been since the election and the MSM is still spewing this nonsense.
Instead many viewers were annoyed at a promo for next Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s sitcom Black-ish, which features a predominantly African-American cast being decidedly anti-Trump in tone and nature.
In the promo, which bills the episode as the “election through the eyes of Black-ish”, Lucy (a white character played by Christine Reitman) tells her predominantly African-American co-workers: “I voted for Trump!” before adding the clichéd justification, “I’m a racist? I have black friends!”
In another scene, her colleague Daphne (Wanda Sykes) appears to kick out at her for merely expressing that she had chosen to cast her vote for the Republican Party.
As I always say, know your audiance. However, the Libs at ABC don’t seem to understand that concept. Let’s say they got a backlash to Blackish. Yet, another reason why Trump won and Hillary lost. America is tired of the BS from the past 8 years of Obama and this plays right in to it.
“Why does the NFL keep playing an anti-Trump commercial for the terrible show Blackish?” wrote one tweeter. “They must not know their audience”. Another viewer fumed: “I am offended at the preview for the show #blackish about voting for Trump makes you a racist!”
Matt Falk tweeted: “No one watch #blackish. Not everyone who voted for Trump is a racist, That show caters to the lowest common denominator” while Steve James declared on the online social networking service: “Man, Blackish looks so original! A Trump voter isn’t racist because she has black friends! Can’t wait to never watch a second of that show.”
It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that Trump will weigh in on Twitter with his thoughts about Black-ish in the next few days.
After all in October 2014, the President-Elect tweeted: “How is ABC Television allowed to have a show entitled “Blackish”? Can you imagine the furor of a show, “Whiteish”! Racism at highest level?”
