?Is ‘Glee’ a Little Bit Racist?




After this week’s fall finale, Glee is taking a hiatus until April. Seems like plenty of time for a little sensitivity training.

Glee is a frothy little show. It’s got spunk. The musical numbers are cheesy and fun. The cast is generally game for the kitsch and capable of carrying the story on those occasions when the scripts call for a bit more. Though it is not as funny as it thinks it is, there’s still enough humor to get a couple of genuine chuckles each hour.

But there is a problem in Glee-ville. What’s the best way to put this? In keeping with the let’s-put-on-a-show attitude, allow me to paraphrase a song from the great off-Broadway musical, Avenue Q.

<Everyone’s a little bit racist. And so is Glee.Collapse )

A friend of mine just started watching the show, and she pointed out something I hadn't really noticed the first time around: During the musical numbers, various members of New Directions push Artie in his wheelchair, sending him rolling, as a joke. They don't go around pushing each other. Why is it supposed to be funny when they do it to him?

edit: Opened a Twitter... I'm @maafna. Going to be Tweeting the cast, crew etc. I'm also going to write Ausiello or Kirsten and ask for spoilers on the minor characters, just so they know there's demand for it. More ideas?
