The subject of bigotry
15 October 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Night They Raided Mind-ski's" opens with Nelson Flavor (Jim Staahl) still hoping to win election to city council, Mork willing to seek out organizations that can help. A rally to 'Clean Up Boulder' has him believing them to be dedicated to clean air, 'Mork Blank' introducing himself to Jim Blake (Ed Peck). Unaware that they represent a KKK-type organization (complete with masks), Mork promotes Flavor's view of 'the race problem': "he believes that he should be ahead of everybody else!" A meeting in Mindy's apartment begins with a promise from Flavor: "I believe that the American people are crying out for leadership, and I want to give them something to cry about!" True intentions are revealed by such slurs as 'spics,' 'nips,' 'krauts,' and 'jungle bunnies.' Mindy proudly admits her Polish heritage, only to be laughed at by Mork: "hardy har har-ski!" Mork's idea of bigotry is an 'Italian forest' until Mindy sets the record straight about how they use humor as a weapon against those they put down, and after Mindy's apartment is wrecked he takes action. Fighting hate with hate isn't his style, rendering them black, brown, red, and other different colors as a more benign lesson. A rare second season episode more indicative of the first
