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

null

Here’s the

first episode of a new satirical websites that premiered yesterday called Try This Instead, which the creator of

the series, Cameron Johnson, says he made to give tips to black people on how to keep white people from saying

and doing unintentionally (or intentionally, whatever the case may be) racist comments

or acts.

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 a 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.
