The judges on ‘Jeopardy’ are racist deebags

Oct 2, 2013

If you’re ever a guest on “Jeopardy,” make sure you have a middle American accent, because if Tuesday’s episode proved anything it’s that the current panel of judges for the long-running game show only accept answers in white-boy accents.

For a $800 question in the “Name TV Role” category (video below), host Alex Trebek quizzed the three contestants on Julia-Louis Dreyfus’s character name on “Seinfeld” (What is Elaine Benes?). Contestant Fidelito Cortes responded first with the answer “Elaine” in a Latin accent. The judges denied him the answer. Then the cracker next to him chimed in with “Benes” and was awarded the cash. Not cool.
