A woman goes on a blind date and the guy tells racist jokes. Then, a black man walks up to them.

Filmmaker Rory Uphold tells the story of Andy, a socially-conscious woman on a first date with Jake.

The date starts off well, and they both have a sense of humor. Andy jokes about her figure while eating a plate of ribs. When the waitress mentions the ribs “fall off the bone and melts in the mouth,” she adds a well-timed “that’s what she said.”

Jake begins to feel comfortable with Andy and has the courage to tell more provocative jokes. He starts by talking religion and works his way up to Jesus. Andy laughs.

Finally, Jake asks how people know Adam and Eve weren’t black. When the punchline hits, Andy takes offense to the stereotype.

An awkward silence.

Jake think the joke is dinner appropriate, considering she ordered ribs. But Andy calls it a racist joke.

Jake tries to smooth it over and Andy let’s it slide. But then, Jake makes one more joke about his shadow being black and Andy gets upset.

The bill comes and Andy insists on going dutch. She tell him there won’t be a second date and they hurriedly leave the restaurant.

Outside, a black man approaches Andy. She tells him she doesn’t have any money to give him. But he says he’s not asking for money — his Uber dropped him off at the wrong place and he’s looking for directions to his DJ gig.

Andy is speechless.

Jake has been listening and steps in to give directions. Then, he turns to Andy, gives her one last look and leaves.
