At the door are his new decidedly non-African-American couple Damien and Mikka. Seems the new giant TV they ordered was delivered but not in the lobby. Does Mister Robinson know anything about.

Turning to the camera, Mister Robinson tells the boys and girls, “There’s a special word for that: racist.”
