Verbally abuse 'em all at once
Matt and Crank are starting the week off with a bang. Instead of verbally abusing one minority group, they created a mythical person that wrapped several of their normal targets for verbal slaying into one character. How does a gay, Black woman in a wheelchair sound? It wasn’t until the end of their spiel that it dawned on them they could make her a Muslim, too.
We found it ironic that Matt would boast about making another audio clip making fun of a gay, Black woman in a wheelchair, but accidentally deleted it instead of saving it. We were spared the clip, which, as Matt said, was probably a good thing since airing it might have gotten them fired.
According to Matt, he’s seen plenty of gay, Black women, but none in a wheel chair. We’re still trying to figure that one out. We’re almost positive that each of us at the Critics Page has probably went to school with, worked with, drank beer with, and hunted or fished with gay people. We're probably doing any one of those thing with gay people now. We can’t say for sure because none of us have figured out how one can look at a person and know they are gay. And if we think really hard about people we have known or know now and suspected that maybe they were gay, we still fall way short of being able to claim we’ve seen plenty of gay people much less “plenty of gay Black women”.
We’ve come to the conclusion that if Matt stays out of the gay bars when he goes home to Baltimore on the weekends, he’d see a lot less gay people. Well, he could always still make them up in his mind as if they were real people he’s seen.
What would a Monday morning be without Matt and Crank pushing their bigotry agenda? We can predict with fair certainty what else Matt and Crank have in store for Delmarva listeners the rest of this week. They’re on a mission to keep women and minorities in their place somewhere behind and below White heterosexual Christian males and we can be guaranteed to hear more of that message as the week drags on.
Oh well, we suffered through their sterotyped ridicule this morning so we share part of the clip we were able to record with you, the reader who may have missed this morning's segment. Forgive us, but we don't like suffering alone.
