Are you some ethnic? Greek? Black? Polack? Sunni Muslim? Then, no doubt, you have a parent, grandparent or ethnic-pride friend telling you to marry your own. This show is for you! Are you a WASP? Or some other majority caucasian? You probably think there's no consequence to dating a Black, subcontinent Indian, Jew or other ethnic-type. You probably think love will conquer all. This show is also for you! Mass migration has changed everything. Compared to your parents, chances are high, you're going to want to hit on someone from some other race. John's in the thick of it himself. His rabbi, relatives and friend George Weinberg tell him to stop busting-a-move on Eurasians and marry a Jew, already. In this eight part adventure, John throws himself into the real world to ask, when it comes to love: Should you stick with your tribe or escape your tribe?


Saisons & épisodes Les résumés de tous les épisodes de John Safran's Race Relations

S01E01 Biological Predisposition 21/10/2009 Episode 1 saw Safran travelling to Israel where his Palestinian boom mic operator made a donation to a sperm bank, then to the West Bank where a donation to a clinic was made by John, in an attempt to make half Jewish half Palestinian children. Noting that he has dated three Eurasian women, Safran conducts an experiment by stealing and smelling the underwear of five Jewish and five Eurasian women (including Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls and actress Dichen Lachman) to see which he "prefers".
S01E02 A Mile in Their Shoes 28/10/2009 People always mocked sallow Jewish John for trying to act black when growing up. But cross-cultural relationship experts say that you should walk in the shoes of other people to understand different cultures.
S01E03 Shiksa 04/11/2009 John's family want him to get together with a Jewess, saying that if he marries out, anti-Semitism will inevitably creep into his cross-cultural union. It's true - some people are racist, but does that really mean John has to stop hitting on Eurasians?
S01E04 Cougars 11/11/2009 Through his reading, John comes across Henry Makow, a fat, old white guy who went to the Philippines to find a bride. Makow claims that Asian women stay attractive for longer than Western women. Fascinated by this premise, John figures out a way to test the claim. It involves exceedingly awkward confrontations with his ex-girlfriends and excruciatingly tender moments with their mothers.
S01E05 Elephant Man 18/11/2009 John goes to Thailand to test Henry Makow's claim that Asian women judge a man by his heart and not by his looks, returns to Australia and puts his own father through a lie detector test, and flies to London to interview Holocaust denier David Irving.
S01E06 John's Mum 25/11/2009 Safran digs a hole next to his mother's grave and performs a Kabbalah ritual in order to ask her if she wishes for him to marry a Jewish girl. Unsatisfied with the response, he travels to Japan and pours out his feelings to his "mother".
S01E07 Christian Domestic Discipline and Star Trek 02/12/2009 John goes to the United States to explore Christian Domestic Discipline and Star Trek philosophy, and then goes to Thailand to step into the shoes of an Asian woman.
S01E08 Devotional Crucifixion 09/12/2009 Peeved by his unsuccessful attempts to solve the cross cultural love riddle, John decides to expose ethnic identity as a ridiculous social construct and marries a non-Jew. Afterwards, in order to render himself a clean slate, ready for cross-cultural love, John decides to take part in the ultimate obliteration: a de-Jewing so severe, no modern Jew has thought to do it.
