Also, during the eight years that Adam has been friends with Dave Kim, they've never had one conversation where race came up. Added to that, Adam didn't even know that racism still existed because apparently his school curriculum has never included one book dealing with racism, nor did he ever watch one of the many "special episodes" in the 80s that was dedicated to it. 🙄 Okay, then.

Look, I'm just looking for the grains of good where I can find it, this show is just getting sad in how noticeably the quality has dropped. BIG WORD TO BOTH OF THESE POSTS. I have been a fan of this show but have noticed the drop in the quality. This is the first time I was actually kind of offended and I am not particularly thin skinned about these types of things. 5 Link to comment
