your first look at the second episode of the satirical web series, Try This Instead, which the creator of the
series, Cameron Johnson, says he was inspired
to make to basically keep white people from
making fools of themselves when dealing with black folks.
It’s not hard
really. It’s the simplest thing in the world – Honest.
As he says,
“instead of having a potentially awkward conversation about why they
shouldn’t say the n-word, touch your hair without permission, or making nasty
Kwanzaa cakes around the holidays, a new web series does it for you.”
Johnson, the series is aimed to “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.”
Johnson himself, he is an L.A. based writer, whose half-hour comedy pilot, Me in
High School, was a quarter-finalist in the Slamdance screenwriting festival,
and his sketch “This is My Breakup” was featured in the 2013 NBC
Talent Showcases in New York and Los Angeles.
episode is entitled Don’t Touch My Hair, which is done from the female point of view.
