“From sea to shining sea ... from the east coast to the west, and whatever’s in between,” comedian Sarah Silverman sings about her love for all the different religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations and occupations that make our country a melting pot—while coming to terms with her own biases in a catchy musical rendition for her new Hulu series I Love You, America.
“I love black people, I love whites, and Asians too. I love Latinos, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists and the Jews,” she belts out, before turning to the camera: “Wait a minute what am I doing? I’m listing kinds of people? I’m categorizing human beings and putting them into little individual boxes. I mean, whether I mean it or not, I’m part of the problem.”
In I Love You, America, Silverman tries to connect with people who may not agree with her personal opinions through honesty, humor, genuine interest in others, and not taking herself too seriously. While it’s great to connect with like-minded people, Silverman feels it’s crucial, now more than ever, to connect with un-like-minded people, according to Hulu.
I Love You, America premieres October 12.
