That last story was infuriating. I'm waiting for this girl to tell her mom she feels ignored, for her mom to realize she is being a terrible mother. Something. Instead daughter does something passive aggressive and gets grounded. the end. Boo.

when the outside culture reinforces the culture of the workplace change is much harder. in fact bringing in a hard-ass agent of change is counterproductive.

@101.25 Ira should have said 'these names are so hard FOR ME to pronounce' instead. Especially in an episode that centers around racism and acceptance of other cultures. Otherwise flawless, as usual.

swing and a miss. if I were a non racist white firefighter being painted as a racist I'd want the boss fired too. this is not how you solve racism.
