18h UTC; SUNDAY, 12 MAY 2013: The other day, there was an interesting commentary on the NPR breakfast show Morning Edition as called out a double standard which seems to exist on unscripted "reality" TV shows of late when it comes to depiction and presentation--to wit: Why is it acceptable to depict working-class whites (or, as conservative prolefeeders insist on depicting such, the "REAL AmeriKKKans") as Objects of Fun and Hilarity for "reality" programming (especially by playing up what some would call offensive or otherwise perjorative stereotypes and traits of character), but not so when you have National Minorities (especially blacks and Hispanics/Latinos) in the lead roles?

(Which, come to think of it, would be the same sort subscribing to self-serving and obnoxiously self-conscious notions of Race and National Honour and Identity rivalling anything expected from back in Nazi Germany and/or apartheid South Africa vis-a-vis the "entitled" Volk ... the same sort who would regard Branson's so-called "music shows" as a "more realistic" defining standard of Amerikanischer Realkultur expected to glamourise racial and national unity as much as identity. Or, as the Nazis called it,
die Gemeinschaft des Volkes ["the Community of the People"] ... and the "privileged" and "entitled" Afrikaners down South Africa way saw as Volkseenheid ["organic unity of a people"].)

Too, you have to wonder how the more blatant specimens of White Christian Dominion and Honour would react to such double-standards on reality televsion (especially on the likes of such online bastions of race hatred as Stormfront.org, VDARE.com and VNN/Vanguard News Network), more likely than no invoking their latent and hard-wired anti-Semitic tropes about "unhealthy and disproportionate to actual numbers" Jewish control of the media "at the expense and danger of Christendom," among other patsies they can use as prolefeed tropes to the extent necessary. Likewise with "Tea Party," "9/12" and "Christian Patriot" causes and sects, many such known to espouse racist and anti-Semitic viewpoints.

Not to mention asking how many such would love to see "a more realistic brand of 'reality' TV" which is more like propaganda at its basest and crudest.
