If you are white and your riot is alcohol fueled, you are a “rowdy” bunch of rapscallions.

If you are black and your riot is politically motivated, you are dangerous thugs and criminals.

Hmmm…

On Amanda Bynes

The writers sit around the boardroom table, hashing out sketches for their popular sketch program.

"What about a parody of the song ‘Bye Bye, Birdie’ called ‘Bye bye, Bynesie?’ sung by a bird only she can see?" 

"Okay, good, what else?"

"A sitcom called ‘crazy and me’ but the ‘me’ is her imaginary friend?"

"That could work well."

"One where her illness spirals her into homelessness and then she’s on the street trying to get people to believe she used to be famous?"

"I like it."

"What about a sketch that illuminates the abhorrent state of the nation’s healthcare system, specifically mental healthcare, and how the media and the public are quick to turn mental illness into a chance to ridicule and mock, instead of a chance to show compassion and concern and reflection. Something about how, in an effort to make a cheap buck, the reaction of the media actually harms the perception of mental illness instead of helps?"

Everyone grows quiet and looks at each other with confusion. 

"I’m just fucking with everyone, how about one where TMZ reporters jerk-off with psychiatric records?"

"I was just about to fire you, you crazy son-of-a-bitch!"

Everyone shares a good laugh and then has sex with each other or something.
