In response to In response to 15



rain and she don't recognize him as her driver... when assane is like 'wtf??', his pops is like, *they* don't SEE us.

so even as the disguises got sillier, i kept that in my mind as subtext throughout the whole show.

his Blackness was a big part of his disguise in France. (i don't know how sociopolitically accurate that is. but living in the US, one's Blackness is a big ass, neon, see it from space sign saying HE DID IT!!! regardless of WHAT the crime was and what the description of the perp was).

for omar sy to be looking like he a solid 6'6" 250 and constantly walking right by mfers did have me a tad side-eyed in the middle, and then i chalked it up to a running gag and just agreed to suspend my disbelief for the remainder.

peace & blessings,


I'm an advocate for working smarter, not harder. If you just
focus on working hard you end up making someone else rich and
not having much to show for it. (c) mad
