Try This Instead

So here’s your first look at the second episode of the satirical web series, Try This Instead, which the creator of the series, Cameron Johnson, says he was inspired to make to basically keep white people from making fools of themselves when dealing with black folks.

It’s not hard really. It’s the simplest thing in the world - Honest.

As he says, "instead of having a potentially awkward conversation about why they shouldn’t say the n-word, touch your hair without permission, or making nasty Kwanzaa cakes around the holidays, a new web series does it for you."

According to Johnson, the series is aimed to "examine a different micro-aggression, and come up with a ‘solution’ on how to avoid it — like sass-avoidance shock collars or just keeping your hands to yourself.”

As for Johnson himself, he is an L.A. based writer, whose half-hour comedy pilot, Me in High School, was a quarter-finalist in the Slamdance screenwriting festival, and his sketch "This is My Breakup" was featured in the 2013 NBC Talent Showcases in New York and Los Angeles.

This new episode is entitled Don’t Touch My Hair, which is done from the female point of view.
