Reality Show freaks.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Has anybody seen the preview for the new reality show. I think it's called Black. White.



I believe it's on FX and has two families that they completely change their races.


This is one of the worst yet.

That is ridiculous IMO.

I mean, why?!... what are they doing it just for fun, to be on tv?? That is really odd. I mean, yeah I'm a bit of a 'reality show freak', not as much as some people, but I think that is just going way too far. I don't really want to watch it.

They go through this complete transformation. They have like masks that they put on and everything to change their color.

Well, I do like most reality shows, but this one is just plain dumb! I won't be tuning in!

I edited my original post. It was supposed to say it's called Black. White.

not


it's all Black. White.


If you got the impression the show is in all black and white, that's incorrect.

I saw previews, and I thought it might be kinda interesting, but I'm a reality show freak and I'll probly watch it once just to see what its all about.

I thought it looked interesting - enough to see what it's like.

Have you seen the clips for the one called Unanimous? (or something like that). I'm curious to know how that one works.

I saw something on Oprah about this. One part that I remember is that the black guy who was turend white was working in a bar in a very white neighborhood. He said it was very interesting for him, because he knew there was NO WAY people would have been that open about thier thoughts on race had they known he was really black. One guy made a comment about how they didn't want "them" moving in thier neighborhood because it had always been like this, meaning always been a white neighborhood. The white guy thatw as turned black was participating in a focus group or something, and thought he'd toss out the "n" word, and found out it doesn't work exatly like he thought it would. Overall they all learned a lot about the other race and have a new respect, at least from what I saw. This is one of the few reality shows I've ever considered watching.

Ok, you just shed a whole new light on this show! Thanks! I had not thought about it like that; I guess I just stereotyped that it was just something people wanted to do just to be on tv - but now that you've said this and I've thought about it, I think I may watch it if I have time.

I think it looks interesting.
The premise isn't hard to grasp at all, it's about walking a mile in someone else's shoes.
Anyone watching with an open mind is likely to glean something.

I think this show is going to be one of the most worthwhile reality shows out there. It is addressing a very sensitive subject, but race is something that NEEDS to be discussed.

I'm not too into reality TV, but this looks more like a sociological experiment than a reality show. I hope they present it that way, rather than focusing on the drama people stir up for themselves.

that's an excellent point.
I hope so too.
