Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Great show don't take it seriously

It's a flipping TV show people made strictly for entertainment purposes so receive it that way only I wouldn't recommend it for anyone Under 12 just because some of the subject matter and some of the jokes are not appropriate for The Young Ones I'm sick and tired of hearing about the race card and how the black hide behind it they don't like something that's said or done it's racist and that's a load of bull just because you don't like something someone says or does doesn't make it racist there are other people who had it bad also and you don't see them hide behind the race card By the way Archie isnt the only one Who using the N word the Jeffersons use it in a few episodes also but then I guess because there black it's OK for them it's only racist if your Skin's a different color
