Racist Dawg is the twentieth episode of the seventh season of King of the Hill. It was written by J.B. Cook and directed by Robin Brigstocke.


When Ladybird accidentally attacks Mack Walker the repairman, Hank thinks Ladybird is racist and tries to attend a dog obedience course to figure out what is wrong with Ladybird. However, when Hank describes the issue, the dog trainer believes the behavior came from Hank.

Why It’s Racist

  1. It is extremely mean-spirited from beginning to end, even by King of the Hill's standards.
  2. It nothing but a 23 minute Hank Hill torture episode.
  3. Everyone throughout the episode is unlikeable as they constantly mistreat and harass Hank whenever he tries to prove he isn't racist.
  4. Peggy is also unlikable here as she does nothing to help to defend Hank from being mistreated by the townspeople.
  5. Reverend Karen Stroup is also unlikable here, she calls out Hank and completely humiliates him right in front of everyone during Church while everyone angrily glares at him.
  6. The episode can get really frustrating and hard to watch due to all the mistreatment Hank gets throughout the episode.
  7. The Arlen townspeople never apologize to Hank for their actions.

Good Qualities

  1. Hank Hill was still likable in the episode as he didn't mean to have Ladybird attack Mack. It was just a misunderstanding.
  2. The episode still had a share of a few funny moments here and there.
  3. The ending of the episode was still nice as Mack finally gets to bond with Ladybird.


Despite it being mean-spirited towards Hank, the episode received a IMDb score of 7.3/10.[1]
