South Park and Family Guy provide diversity lessons your parents never did.

ASAP
and Resources for Disabled Students present Diversity according to South Park and Family Guy.

Motivational and inspirational speaker Matt Glowacki says the only thing that offends him is ignorance, and he wants to help solve that problem every day.

He will examine how the television shows Family Guy and South Park break down stereotypical attitudes and behaviors regarding people’s differences.

About the sitcoms

South Park is a sitcom, notorious for its crude, surreal and often very dark humor, which satirizes a wide range of topics including religion, politics, violence, abuse, sexuality and mental illness.

Family Guy is a show centering on a dysfunctional family in the fictional town of Quahog, Rhode Island. The show uses frequent "cutaway gags," jokes in the form of sketches.
