Beatriz at Dinner
on Amazon Prime
What did I just watch? It took me two tries to get through it because I kept screaming at the screen. Who was the intended audience? People like the snobs who couldn't even hear how horrible they were being? Because I mostly identified with Beatriz. It annoyed me that Cathy kept pronouncing her name like "Beatrice." And the overall vibe of "go along to get along."
It's basically any space ever where white people think it belongs to them and they tell everybody else to pipe down and not ruin their fun. Bro, I've spent all day keeping my mouth shut and I'm not doing it after hours!
