An animated series on Paramount Plus depicts a black girl scamming a liberal man with "white guilt"

Here's a story from a cartoon you may consider rather unusual in this day and age airing on Paramount Plus' channel, in Harper House, described by Newsbusters like this:
The Harper House on Paramount+ follows Debbie Harper (voice of Rhea Seehorn) and her family as they struggle to adapt to their new life after Debbie loses her job and they must move from the wealthy side to the poor side of a small Arkansas town. They are a woke liberal family so it is not at all surprising that the episode that began streaming on September 30, titled “Baby Talk/Coupon Kid,” centered on white guilt and black neighbors.

One day, school girl Shauna Bradley went to the Harper house selling coupon pages for the "Irish Heritage Foundation." Dad Freddie (voice of Gabourey Sidibe) tried to turn down her sales pitch but Shauna persisted, throwing the race card, “C’mon, man. You’re white. Are you saying that you don’t have money for a girl like me?” Immediately Freddie caved and gave her the $20 she requested.

After Shauna left, Freddie admitted he didn’t want to buy the coupon page but couldn’t turn her down. Todd (voice of Ryan Flynn) and his sister Ollie (voice of Tatiana Maslaney) told their father that he was probably scammed as Shauna has a reputation at school for being cunning and all the teachers are scared of her.
As the article states, at least this time, the family dad depicted buffoonishly is a liberal, unlike say, Ned Flanders on the Simpsons, who's more of a religious figure in a conservative sense. But that doesn't make the politics the cartoon builds on any more valid, and this looks like another embarrassment dishing out heavy-handed politics instead of offering something where they're kept to a minimum, which is entirely possible to do, but which today's modern liberal writers simply fail to prove they can.
