“White People Renovating Houses”

The media expected South Park‘s 21st season premiere to tackle Charlottesville and white supremacists based on its preview. And it did. But South Park saved its sharpest edges for mocking Americans distraught about the decline in manufacturing and other blue-collar jobs. In the episode, workers in South Park are up in arms over technology companies automating traditional occupations, so they take to the streets in protest (complete with waving a Confederate flag). The protestors disrupt Randy Marsh’s new house-flipping show, which is called White People Renovating Houses. “Don’t you know every time you wave Confederate flags around you make us look stupid?” Randy scolds.
