Outsourced on NBC…really!?

So for those of you who watch The Office, you’d know that the season premiere of Outsourced follows. Long story short: an American worker goes to India to manage a call center company since he cannot find any work in America and is drowning in student debts.

Of course, stereotypes will be present but dear God, this show is funny in the “racist-Indian-call-center-operator” way–but, how this show is depicting call centers and India in general is downright insulting. They’re being depicted as gossiping, spicy eating, uneducated individuals in a nation where cows climb steps…no, that’s not India.

Definitely check it out if you’re interested in overanalyzing this show like I am right now.
