It was very negative. I am a Gallaudet Alumni and black male professional. To be blunt, the show seems racist. why I stated that because focus on the two black students and white female students sex and etcs. The film showed no positive of People of Colors, black females and others. Parents who watch this show will not find any positive view or decision in sending their deaf, or Hard of hearing students to a Prostitute University since the main theme is sex, pregnant, and non- education stories about success , experiences at Gallaudet.

The show is a negative overall. Nothing positive to add to the few.
