judging by your reaction and the reactions in the thread yall may not be avid readers, you make a protagonist like this when you wanna say something to both sides of the argument that they may not like. Film doesn't really go into absurdist style stories that often, but shows like Atlanta prove it can work as long as viewers have context for the main characters being there.
Without reading anymore i can guarantee you this man Kendrick reads Paul Beatty, the absurdity of the premise is on purpose, and yall gonna ignore coming back to this thread once it comes out and there's context to whatever yall got an issue with. Matt Stone and Trey Parker are goated writers so yall kinda sleeping on how dope this situation could potentially be IMO wait til it comes out. i've run into stories like this and halfway through i felt silly for having a surface reaction to the premise
but imma let yall have it South Park creators showed me they can make a controversial premise make a shyt ton of sense and they make their stories on a super tight/short schedule iirc so i'll be tuning in if it's actually in production
