Politically Correct on steroids.
6 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can honestly say that I have watched every single episode of SUV, and have enjoyed them all until this one. They have always addressed current news stories, but this was too much. It was about the "hoodie" controversy and the Zimmerman/Martin shooting. But that wasn't enough for Wolf. He also included a large portion of Paula Deen to the recipe. Cybll Shepherd plays the part of a rich business woman from the South (of course)who kills a Black "kid" for no other reason that the fact that he was black and wearing a hoodie. She is acquitted in the end and the SUV unit sadly sighs. Sgt Munch turns to Tutuola and says, "sorry", to which Tutuola says, "ain't your fault, that's just the way it is". My question to Hollywood is: When will all Southerners stop being profiled as racists and bigots? Where do most most racist and homophobic crimes occur? Read the news, it ain't down South.
