Black. White.

Anybody watching this program on FX?

I think it's an interesting reality show/expose on some peoples' views of racial issues.

I guess that's what I like about it... It kinda makes you think about who is more 'right' along with all the shades of gray and subtleties surrounding the issue.

Hee hee hee, I feel your pain. I got my wife hooked on police dramas. NYPD Blue, Law & Order, and L&O SVU at first. Now that Blue is off the air, we watch Injustice, and she wants to see this new show, Evidence. Also she's interested in the new L&O spin off, Conviction. Problem is, they are all on at the same time as other shows! We already have to watch one and tape another! If she keep wanting the watch these other shows, we're going to have to get another recording device!

I've seen previews for this show, B.W. I think it looks good and the concept is good, but I just don't have time to watch or tape it!

Not interested in it. I especially dont need some TV show to show me the predudice and differences of races.

Morgan Freeman said "the best way to end racism is to not talk about it" I agree. Crap like this just gets people stired up. thats my opinion.

Hey BigDog

I like your signature... I like the first verse of that Chesney song:

The body's a temple
That's what we're taught
Well, I've treated this one like an old honky-tonk
Greasy cheeseburgers and cheap cigarettes
One day they'll get me
If they ain't got me yet


Good song.

I agree with Chef Jimmy. No race has a monopoly on trashy behavior.

I'm happy that you stated this as your opinion, Jimmy. I do not happen to agree
with you or this actor ('s opinion). Ignoring real issues does not end them.

(in my opinion)
