11. i saw it
but, I only watched about a half hour of it. (i was torn between this one and another show that were on at the same time. lol). Much of what I saw of it was interesting, enough, although, there were some moments where I got a little upset with the black people (the real ones) for some things they were saying. I am a black person, and I was a bit offended at times when the ones on the show were saying about how things are for them in life as black people, like getting watched whenever they go into a store or being held back from certain jobs, etc. Personally, I have never in my life had those kinds of problems, and neither have any of my black friends. I know things were like that for people my parents age, but I just don't see those kinds of things happening these days. I guess it's not to say that it DOESN'T happen to somebody, but it's not like things were in the 50's and 60's for blacks. I just worry and wonder if maybe other races who are watching that show who are listening to what the black people on the show are saying, they may get the wrong impression. That's just my 2 cents. Lol, I gotta say though, the white people who had the black make-up on just looked REALLY weird. Not because of THEM, but because the make-up didn't look like natural skin color. It really looked like they had been painted. The white make-up on the black people was done pretty good. It looked fairly natural. I'd believe they were white if I met them on the street or something.
