Remember how liberals are politically correct snowflakes who get offended by everything?
Remember, also, how conservatives get offended by shit like people saying “happy holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” or Starbucks giving them a solid red cup (still don’t understand that one, to be honest)? Now, they’re offended by Netflix making a TV show about black people. Really.
Netflix has set a date for the premiere of its series Dear White People, and people who have some weird internalized issue with seeing dark skin on TV are predictably freaking the fuck out about it. Some of them are going so far as to delete their Netflix accounts because they’ve somehow gotten it into their heads that the show is going to “promote white genocide.”
The synopsis is literally this: “Based on the acclaimed indie film, the series satirizes ‘post-racial’ America as students of color navigate a predominantly white Ivy League college,” which sounds exactly zero percent like genocide. In case you need to see for yourself, here’s the trailer. Believe it or not, not a single white person is harmed.
Really, the sheer disconnect from reality makes me wonder if this is legitimate or if that guy is just a master at trolling all of us. Regardless, one of those liberal snowflakes got revenge.

This about sums it up:
Conservatives: What a bunch of whiney liberal snowflakes protesting everything!
