I thought it was good. I thought the white guy was an idiot at first for basically blowing off the idea of racism, but he had a point. He just feels that racism is a result of a self-fulfilling prophecy. On the other side, the black father is certain that people are racist. The way they edited it, they made it look like they were both right - and they are.

My $0.02.....

Personally I was kinda looking forward to this show, but I was extremely disappointed as someone pointed out the only two people on this whole show who are worth watching are the two kids....Although its an interesting subtopic that the kids don't see racism and the fathers are the ones looking for it.

I thought both fathers were worthless, they are not using this experiment to learn anything, they both have thier racial agendas and plan to use this to prove a point. For instance when the Black now white father went and bought shoes, and they put the shoe on for him. I thought it would be interesting to send the White now black dad in for the same thing and see if there was a difference, but they didn't they just concluded racism...I mean of course what else could it be, a good salesman, or maybe a store he hadn't shopped in before, nope he was a racist.

The daughter who turned black is by far the most interesting of the group, she is the only reason I would turn it back on again. Plus I think the moms are going to kill each other by the end of the show.

But the show would be much more interesting if they lost thier personal agendas and actually used this opportunity to learn something, but hey why would humans now aday actually use a learning opportunity to learn something.

Yes.


Actually no. They use some sort of body paint to actually change color.

Was a strange show though. The fathers are the most interesting for me, as the black father insists there's racism everywhere, and the white father says there's no racism at all. Completely different opinions and I doubt they come to an agreement on anything.

Doubt I watch another episode, but then again, I have seen worse shows/movies/etc, so you never know.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
