Societal issues addressed in new South Park season

By Karli Coleman

South Park has been entertaining, baffling, and offending its audience for 19 seasons now. With over 250 episodes and a variety of protagonists everyone loves to hate, along with a feature film and a variety of collectors’ merchandise and video games, South Park continues to be one of the most beloved animated comedies in the world, winning over viewers with its clever satire and offensive humor.

I have been a dedicated South Park fan for as long as I can remember. The show has never failed to put a smile on my face while I was going through rough times in my childhood. South Park and its characters were always there when I was happy, sad, or anything in between. It has evoked tears as a result of such intense laughter, and the animated series will always be a favorite of mine.

The 19th season of South Park aired on Sept. 16. Similar to last season, this season features an episode-to-episode consistency, with social justice and political-correctness as a recurring theme. This season introduced the PC “Politically Correct” Principal, a jacked-up frat boy who considers himself a social justice warrior. The PC Principal is a new major character that emphasizes social justice and the importance of being politically aware and correct in the modern world.

So far this season, South Park has touched on a variety of social justice topics, such as transgender awareness, immigration, ableist slurs, and the importance of voting for a good president, along with gay rights and the harm done by negative propaganda of marginalized minorities.
