If you had your own reality show, what would it be called? What would it be about?
it would be called "24hr in the Tenderloin". it would take incredibly rich or powerful people, make them naked and covered in feces, and release them into the tenderloin district of sf for 24hr (a notoriously "dangerous" area of town that is not in fact dangerous at all if you don't walk around waving your iphone over your head like a stupid person. this is the area of sf that i am walking the streets with the children most often, usually in the evenings as well, since we all do volunteer work down there 4 days a week). they would have tasks to accomplish (get a meal from glide. use your care not cash voucher to register at an sro. get into army thrift and procure an outfit. obtain mental health or medical services from one of the agencies down there) and items to obtain. hopefully it would give jackasses a little insight on how hard it is to actually be poor, and what a fucking time consuming racket it can be to prove that you are "worthy" of social services help. and also a valuable lesson on how it doesn't matter who you actually are, when you are perceived as poor you are completely dehumanized in ways that most people never will experience.
i shamelessly stole this idea from t12 who had it first. but we *ARE* making this show someday. now who wants to volunteer as our first subject? :D
