I think the misogyny and racism have finally managed to make me turn away from the show.

Or maybe I'm just not well. But right now the show's on, and I'm feeling physically ill.

Sam's actions where he (grey text)
garrotted the black man

Or something else in specific?

No, that. But I wasn't reading it as a race issue, just as a deeply unpleasant death scene, all the more so because it's Sam.

No, I couldn't keep my mind off the fact that Sam is white in skin and in "intention", and Walker was black in skin and intention even before turning; in this scene, he had been made grotesquely inhuman through exaggerated prognathism, and that the white man was, killing the black man through strangulation.

Mmmmmm lynching.
