Reason 1-infinity I love this show:
the facial expressions
I just moved to California a few weeks ago…I get there, I get out of my car; literally 10 seconds after I get out my car, this car pulls up, this guy pokes his out of the window, he yells at me “Hey Kumar, where’s Harold!” and drives away! TEN FUCKING SECONDS, like he’d been waiting around the corner for weeks like “I can’t wait for a brown to come to town: I’ve got a pop culture reference that will belittle him”.
I got so angry, and whenever somebody’s racist to me I get so angry, and I was trying to think “Why?”. And I think it’s because, when somebody is racist to you, there are no comebacks: there is nothing you can say to win. I mean, what am I gonna do: be racist back to them? No, because I’m not racist, and because most of the people who are racist to me are…white, and it’s very tricky to be racist to white people. Like, what am I gonna be, like “Oh, I’m Kumar? Well….you’re the lead in most movies that come out! Your move”.
