'South Park' to Skewer White Oppression, Genealogy Sites
South Park is taking a shot at white people who feel they are oppressed by an overly politically correct society.
In a preview for Wednesday's episode “Holiday Special," Randy watches a commercial for a website that claims to help Caucasians identity their genealogy, DNA and Me, which leads them to feel oppressed once they discover a small percentage of minority ancestry.
"Turns out I'm not totally white. I am also part northern Asian and even some Kurdish. I'm a victim of oppression," one white character says in the commercial Randy watches. "I used to get in trouble for always using the N-word. But with DNA and Me, I found out I am 1.2 percent black," says another white guy.
The announcer on the DNA and Me commercial goes on to say, "Order now and find out if your friends should be more sympathetic towards you."
According to Comedy Central's episode description, "In a return to form, a forbidden love story between a white man and a Native American man unfolds. However, the boy's story exploits people’s misery for laughs."
South Park has already taken a swing at white nationalists this season, which occurred during the season premiere. Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone also poked fun at the saber-rattling between North Korea and the U.S., as well as Donald Trump's incessant tweeting this season.
