oh, really?

how annoying is this?

so many stereotypes about black people are reinforced so innocuously throughout the media, it's no wonder so many of us believe them. here's a clip from the film harvard man that features some prattle about how black people can't swim.

i love the way the brother in this scene lets this fact of black life slide by, like his blackness depends on it. because if that's what black people do and if he's truly black, he'd better be all about it. right?
