Blacken the Bubble is an affirmative action comedy set in a "post racial" America. Mega-company Firm Glass is in danger of losing government contracts due to the lack of diversity in their workplace. When they hire Trevor Washington, an African-American, they think their diversity issue is solved. However, when Mr. Washington fails to fill in his race on his paperwork, the office takes desperate measures to convince Trevor to blacken the "correct" bubble. As political correctness flies out the window, everyone—black, white, straight, gay—discovers “inclusion” might be a lot more than they bargained for.
