Hulu’s ‘The Mindy Project:’ White Privilege Has ‘Whole New Meaning’ Since Trump Won

Written by  Alexa Moutevelis Coombs

The writer and supervising producer of the the latest episode of Hulu’s The Mindy Project titled “Mindy Lahiri Is a White Man,” recently admitted in an interview that tackling the subject of “white privilege” has "a whole new meaning," given the unexpected victory of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.

Really? Last I checked, both of them were white people.

The issues of white privilege and the gender wars are easily interchangeable in this episode. Dr. Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling), the owner of a fertility clinic, is up for the job of Head of Obstetrics at St. Brendan’s Hospital. Her colleague from her clinic, Jody (Garret Dillahunt) is also up for the job. Another Asian doctor, Dr. Irene Lee (Ellen D. Williams) is the only other woman going on the job interview. Jody was quite self-assured about his chances of success with the job interview- as a white male but Mindy piped up that she looks like how leaders look today. Then she went on to name the examples of Michelle Obama, Kamila Harris, and Gabrielle Union.

During the first round, Jody came out of the interview mentioning that he did really well and told a great Hillary joke to the panel of interviewers.

"White privilege" is nothing more than white ability, white ingenuity, white dynamism. Non-whites in this country use the term to hide their own failings and inabilities.
