In a recent video, Amber Ruffin, a writer for “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” went on a racist rant against white people, telling them to basically leave the country. According to Big League Politics’ Peter D’Abrosca, she used four minutes of air time to slam the latest episode of “Roseanne,” in an effort to peg the show, and by extension, most of America, as racist.
“Roseanne is back and better than ever – at being racist,” Ruffin said. “In this tired-a** episode, she has Muslim neighbors and she thinks they’re terrorists until they give her their WiFi password, and then she decides that they’re okay and saves them from a different racist person, proving that she is no longer racist.”

Needless to say, Roseanne is a sitcom, not a documentary. It is not to meant portray how people act in the real world. Quite the opposite, actually. This particular episode of the show was designed to be tongue-in-cheek, and to poke fun at people who harbor racial stereotypes. That was the whole point.
That point is lost on Ruffin, though, who went on to speculate what would have happened in the fictional world of a fictional television show had Roseanne’s fictional Muslim neighbors not given her their fictional WiFi password.
“What would have happened in this episode if they had been mean to her, as was their right to do?” Ruffin asked. “She’d have called the cops and they’d have gone to jail, that’s what!”
Then, Ruffin went on to describe how this episode coincides with three instances of apparent “racism” that have occurred in America recently – though Ruffin does not give the viewer background on any of the events. She declares the events to be racist, and thus they must be so. In one instance, a white woman apparently called the police on two Native American teenagers who were taking a college tour.
Ruffin stated: “[The woman] didn’t think they looked like they belonged there,” Ruffin screeched. “They’re Native Americans standing in America. They’re the only people who do belong there! If you want to get rid of people who don’t belong here, get your pasty a** back on the Mayflower and go home!”
“Someone should alert the nitwits at Late Night with Seth Meyers that most Americans, no matter their race, do not have a lineage that traces back to the Mayflower. But why would Ruffin bother with facts while she’s making sweeping generalizations about an entire race?” D’Abrosca asked.
