On ‘Hicksploitation’ And Other White Stereotypes Seen On TV : Code Switch : NPR
I listened to this piece as I was dashing off to work Friday morning, and thought that while I agreed, the commenter spoke too often of “white” stereotypes and less forthrightly about class.
Reading the comments now on the NPR website, the social reluctance to talk openly about how easily class stereotypes are justified seems apparent.
“What many forget is that it can be just as easy to stereotype white, working-class folks, and just as hard to scrub those stereotypes off your TV screen.”
