CBS comedy The Neighborhood became the latest network series to push the anti-police narrative sweeping through Hollywood on Monday by claiming that America’s police departments are organized to enforce “slavery” and “have a history of treating [white people] better than they treat black people.”
The November 16 episode, entitled “Welcome to the Movement,” began with Malcolm (Sheaun McKinney) telling his family that a black friend of his had been beaten and arrested by the police for no real reason after police confronted them as they played basketball.
No other information about this incident is given to viewers but it forms the reason for the characters to launch a protest against the police. In the series, the most prevalent “neighbor” is a white man named Dave Johnson, usually played as a foolish, woke, weirdo by actor Max Greenfield. In short order, Dave joins his black neighbors in their anti-police protest.
