Best sitcom – Yes minister 3

Racism is said to be getting worse in the USA!?

Back in the good old days in the southern states of America, before we were driven into panic rooms by micro-aggressions, there were white citizens councils that would record in their minutes voting to have someone murdered. Such was their sense of impunity.

Unlike the Ku Klux Klan, the White Citizens’ Councils met openly and were seen as “pursuing the agenda of the Klan with the demeanour of the Rotary Club” by “unleashing a wave of economic reprisals against anyone, Black or white, seen as a threat to the status quo”. In Mississippi, the State Sovereignty Commission funded the Citizens’ Councils.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 broke the control of segregationists over their political and legal institutions. The racial segregation collapsed because it could no longer rely on Jim Crow laws and the private violence and boycotts through the White Citizens Councils which police turned a blind eye too when they were not actively involved.

Vanity Fair looks at SNL’s take on Trump and Weinstein

One of my fascinations about movie and television props is the scene where someone is wearing a wire to meet with the baddies. Inevitably, the battery malfunctions.

There is never any miniaturisation of these wiretapping devices. Indeed, this movie prop lasted well into the era where mobile phones could be turned into a listening device or a alive mike.

Vanity Fair compares Trump and Weinstein through looking at Saturday Night Live

The zinger:-

“What an idiot that Harvey Weinstein is. He could have gotten away with all of it if he had just gotten himself elected president.”

It is worth remembering:-

Trump was accused by 11 women of sexual assault and harassment in October of 2016; weeks later he was elected president.
