Watch Episode 2 Of Satirical Web Series 'Try This Instead' (Tips For Black People On How To Handle Racism)

null

So here’s

your first look at the second episode of the satirical web series, Try This Instead, which the creator of the

series, Cameron Johnson, says he was inspired

to make to basically keep white people from

making fools of themselves when dealing with black folks.

It’s not hard

really. It’s the simplest thing in the world – Honest.

As he says,

“instead of having a potentially awkward conversation about why they

shouldn’t say the n-word, touch your hair without permission, or making nasty

Kwanzaa cakes around the holidays, a new web series does it for you.”

According to

Johnson, the series is aimed to “examine a different micro-aggression, and

come up with a ‘solution’ on how to avoid it — like sass-avoidance shock

collars or just keeping your hands to yourself.”

As for

Johnson himself, he is an L.A. based writer, whose half-hour comedy pilot, Me in

High School, was a quarter-finalist in the Slamdance screenwriting festival,

and his sketch “This is My Breakup” was featured in the 2013 NBC

Talent Showcases in New York and Los Angeles.

This new

episode is entitled Don’t Touch My Hair, which is done from the female point of view.
