Title: Pathetic: ABC Stokes Racial Tensions for Ratings

The shameless ABC reality show, What Would You Do?, which pits people against one another in front of hidden cameras, returned Tuesday night. In the quest for ratings, host John Quinones actually stoked racial tensions by hiring actors to go into public places and get into a heated argument over the Confederate flag.

Previewing the disgusting summer premiere of the program on Good Morning America earlier in the day, Quinones gushed over the potential to exploit current crises to produce a television show:

“We’re living in a ‘What Would You Do?’ universe right now. It’s a time of racial reckoning, a time of a pandemic, which is forcing us to rely more and more on one another to get us through some really difficult times.”

 

 

Co-host Amy Robach touted how the upcoming episode would foster more racial division during an already divided time:

“You have one scenario from the premiere that is particularly timely. You have a white man who is wearing a jacket with a confederate flag on it, a black man then asks him to take it off. A few bystanders, as they typically do on your show, chime in with their thoughts.”

After playing a clip, Robach wondered: “John, this is a debate that is happening throughout our nation right now. What surprised you most about how people reacted?” Quinones replied: “We saw right after that woman said ‘get over it,’ right next to her was an African-American woman, said, ‘Get over it? When are we going to do that? This has been going long enough. It’s been going on for long enough.’”

Moments later, Robach laughably pretended there was educational value to the televised stunts: “So what do you think we will learn from the new season?” Quinones condemned many of people caught on camera:

I think you will be inspired because tonight, and every Tuesday night, we will test people with those hidden cameras and you will see – even though there are folks who are, you know, say some god awful racist things because today more people are willing to do that than ever before. And that’s one thing I’ve noticed over the years.

The last couple of years people – it’s as if they’ve been given a license to resort to their darkest, you know, impulses and say the most god awful things. But when we test them with hidden cameras, you will see the better angels in us, as Lincoln would say, who will step in and inspire us.

And what about the “dark impulse” to stir up racial division just to make money with a television show?

The actual episode aired Tuesday night and featured Quinones using actors to goad people into racially-charged arguments in a restaurant in Mississippi and a grocery store in New York. A white actor entered the public settings portraying the cartoonish character of a southerner wearing a jacket with Confederate flag imagery while a black actor pretended to confront the fake situation:

 

 

Quinones explained that the segments were filmed last year, before the pandemic or current Black Lives Matter protests.

This has been a long-term juvenile pattern for the show, trying to prove left-wing theories about how awful Americans are by contriving ridiculous scenarios made to make people look bigoted or offensive. This is literally fake news and ABC needs to stop promoting this kind of irresponsible programming.

I agree. It's been going on long enough. Get over it.
