Race on the Road: Where is the Diversity?

Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes both died over the weekend. I liked Hayes in South Park, but I’ll be honest, I thought Bernie Mac’s comedy was irritating. Nonetheless, both did well in bringing more black faces to the small screen– the television industry’s chronic tokenization was embraced by both, then ruthlessly used to give them greater exposure and celebrity.

That’s one thing about living in an RV: most of the people we encounter at the parks are white. This probably has something to do with the longstanding (and not altogether untrue) belief among African Americans that there’s something inherently foolish about deliberately sleeping out of doors.
