The New Adventures of Old Christine: White Like Me / Season: 4 / Episode: 3 (00040003) (2008)
Production Code: 00040003
October 8, 2008
Barb is profiled in a local black business owner’s magazine, and it brings a ton of new business to the gym, most of which are black women. All of a sudden, Christine doesn't feel so comfortable in her own gym, but Ali fits in to the new environment. She wonders if Barb understands what it's like to feel different from everyone else, leading Christine to realize that maybe she's a little bit racist after all. Because things are so busy at the gym, Christine has Richard and Matthew look after Ritchie. She gives them lots of instructions, but they’re dismissive and end up losing Ritchie. Christine then tries to get some white people in the gym, like Marly, Lindsay and Mrs. Wilhoite to integrate the gym.
