FEATURE: 'Try This Instead' Web Series Tackles Racial Microaggressions

Hey guys, check out the 'Try This Instead' web series, a funny take on how to curb some people's enthusiastic and well-intentioned racial microaggressions!
Info: "Is someone telling you you're not really black or that something wasn't really racist? White friends won't stop touching your hair? Did your co-workers respond to you with "girlfriend?" Racial microaggressions are a part of everyday life for minorities, but do they have to be? Try This Instead, a new satirical web-series from writer/director Cameron Johnson says no. In each episode, we 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."

Cute! Not really my cup of tea, but I like that it's not just about making fun of only one type of person (e.g., "ha ha, white people, ha ha!"). I do wonder though how people in general would react if this was "being black is really hard these days, you guys..." said by a white person, and I guess that's why ultimately, this type of video series isn't for me.
