“It really pisses me off,” Jerry Seinfeld told Buzzfee’s Peter Lauria when asked why so much of his attention is focused on white, dude, comedians. “People think [comedy] is the census or something, it’s gotta represent the actual pie chart of America. Who cares?”
Describing consideration of race or gender in comedy as “PC nonsense,” Seinfeld said “I have no interest in gender or race or anything like that,” which you probably could have guessed from all the other shit he just said.
But, you guys, he’s right. I mean, who on earth wants to see themselves reflected on the popular culture they consume? We should be HAPPY we get time off from the kitchen/field to laugh at a white guy! He done tole me!
Oh, but, BTW: seems like as good a time as any to link to this old chestnut. Birds, feather, all that.
