Aside from Shrill, I have been late to every great TV show of the past 5 years. So I completely missed American Koko. I was researching Viola Davis (okay, I was making a list of her movies I wanted to rewatch) and came across this show. I think it’s a web series? I don’t know what is actually happening with much of anything so figuring out modern media is beyond me.
If you have not seen American Koko, you should watch it now. As I advised with The Last O.G. stop whatever adult crap you are doing and go watch it right now.
Akosua Millard, codenamed “Koko,” investigates and solves sticky racial situations in a post post-racial America as a member of the E.A.R. Agency (Everybody’s A little bit Racist).
The opening work we see Koko doing is gathering hair care products to help a white mom take care of her black daughter’s hair. There is also a great party scene where we feel our hero’s pain because she is told by the host to please curb the louder, more vociferous aspects of her opinions and personality.
Follow this link and it will take you to an ABC webpage and you can watch all the episodes. Most of them are 10 minutes or so long.
