The answers were truthful. I did not comment, but I will add an explanation here. Before I proceed, let me say that I have received communion and absolution from the hands of men born in the Philippines, Argentina, Poland, Nigeria, Ireland, and the US. That is more leveling than anything anyone can say to me.
Television reflects the connection between the federal government and big business. A while back I was a writer analyst in the state tax division of Wolters Kluwer. One of my friends was in the government contracts department. It was small, but he spent 100% of his time writing and editing content for the Government Contracts Reporter publication.
His work, which I read occasionally, highlights this fact: the federal government makes almost nothing. It contracts out work to corporations from all over the US and the world. If those companies want contracts, they must be on good terms with the federal government, which means complying with superabundant regulations and practices imposed on them by the federal government. (Lobbying is a separate category about which I know very little.)
Hence, big corporations hire big advertising agencies to make big commercials filled with black people to remain on good terms with the present federal administration’s wokeness. A TV show entitled, The Kings of Napa, is about a black family and its winery in Napa, CA. The show trailer glorifies wealth and does not present good role models for young people. I lived in the Napa Valley for fifteen years. There are several black-owned wineries, but the black population of Napa County is 2%. Warner Brothers is just another big business.
This leads me to what I want to say about school.
Government has a monopoly that reaches even into private schools. One of my students applied to several private high schools in San Francisco. The BLM logo is on one school website. One of my parents expressed surprise that Americans have so little knowledge of life under Marxism. I told her indoctrination begins very early in the schooling of an American.
She is worried that college admissions racial quotas, which are disgraceful, will disadvantage her US-born son. I told her that her son is gifted and will find a way to success. She also made me aware that illegal immigration has pushed other people farther back in the line, and COVID has added two more years of delay for those seeking citizenship by legal means. Fortunately, her son is a citizen, and he is now homeschooled.
