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.

Timely and thought provoking

I highly recommend watching this documentary. It doesn't get it all right in my opinion; over simplifying the imbalances that drive hatred, such as, oppression and economic inequality. But it helps to touch on very hard topics and continue a conversation that I hope has already been started in your home. Racism, violence, bigotry, genocide, etc.

Missed the mark

The show was interesting in some areas. But the show interviewed other people from other countries who spoke in their native language. This language was not translated into English so you could not understand what importance or point of view as to what they were referencing. This was so boring and frustrating I had to skip through because I would be aggravated which took away from the show. Why have these people interviewed if you are not going to advise me as to what they are saying. A big waste of time for the interviewee and the watcher. I would not recommend to others.
