Cliff Crooks Rejects Marcel Vigneron's Suspiciously Color-Coordinated Advances

Once again, from Padma Lakshmi's Cogent™ Blog, comes another interesting titbit (it's the British spelling, possums) about the villainous Marcel Vigneron:
"I felt badly for Cliff who is color blind and got the worst color, or at least the hardest color: purple. I do think he made a valiant effort by trying to match the color of eggplant. But Cliff's own instinct was right, often eggplant does just look black, or close to black. Perhaps if he had chosen a red cabbage which has that lovely purple magenta color, he'd have done better. I think it's important to note that Marcel offered to help him choose, yet Cliff's reluctance to trust Marcel kept him from taking that offer."

It wasn't Cliff's inability to trust Marcel that made him refuse Marcel's help, it was Cliff's reluctance to show that he needed any assistance. I'm sure Cliff would have refused help from anyone.
If Cliff had accepted help, he would have shown that he needed help to do his job. Let's not blame Marcel for everything.

Bravo. Amen to that. Cliff is a loner and suffers from superiority attitude. Notice how badly his teams usually perform.

I don't think Cliff's had enough screentime for anyone to make grand statements about him being a loner, but whatever, to each their own. I thought he did pretty awesome in this quickfire for a colorblind guy.

Cliff suffers from urban black man syndrome. Its basically a mix of south american machismo combined with an unhealthy dose of "keeping it real".

Oh for fuck's sake. I love how the guy's had maybe a half hour of screen time total yet somehow this was enough in-depth material into his personality for Anonymous 8:57 to diagnose him with some bullshit racist "syndrome". Well done, Mr. or Mrs. Armchair Psychologist. I in turn diagnose you with a mix of a dumbass complex twinged with an ailment of ignorance. Wow, making up psychological disorders and then attributing them to people you don't even know sure is fun!
