Educational Entertainment

Unlike most reality shows, Black White tackles the social issue of racism in a way that really makes you think. The show is creative and thought provoking. My husband and I are compelled to discuss each episode and our views and opinions. It could be used for educational purposes at the high school or college level, as long as the instructor has had some amount of diversity training and is prepared to moderate a potentially firey discussion. Kids and parents may find that they have highly divergent viwes on the issue of racism... prepare yourself for an invigorating discussion!

Overrated

Where to Start? The should should be TV-PG instead of TV-MA. CSM overrated it. Language should be Iffy Instead for Red. Educational series could Be TV-14 but NOT TV-MA.
