    Haven't seen it, but your reaction is one of a snowflake. And now I want to see it.

    Bezos is one of the biggest communist/racist this country has ever seen but yet people choose to enrich the oppressor.

    Doesn't take much to trigger him. This is the same dude that got upset about ESPN reporting womens basketball scores.

    This reminds me I need to get around to watching Lovecraft Country. Thanks HMAN.

    My wife watched it thinking that it was somehow related to the movie "Us"

    She said that it was ok.

    Isn't that pretty much the idea of these kinds of shows? It's not a documentary. Entertainment is always "exaggerated". Otherwise it would be boring as hell. Tired of people (on all sides) trying to impute an agenda onto everything. Snowflakes all of them.

    Would be closer to reality if you switched the races. Why do people bitch about something and still give that company money? You know it is possible to live without Amazon, Walmart, Coke at least for now.

    No it states at the beginning that these events actually happened.

    And it's a bunch of exaggerated BS.

    And Apple and Microsoft and Facebook and McDonald's and on and on.

    I don't discriminate on where I shop or spend money based on politics. I'm strictly utilitarian. I even tried Chick-Fil-A, although I wasn't that impressed.

    These fearmongering shows are the reason minorities have panic attacks and resist arrest.

    Not a fan.

    It definitely contributes in adding to the ridiculousness the weak-minded already believe

    When NWA released the hit single Fuk The Police.

    Violent attacks against law enforcement in the country increased 300%.



    ...


    Wannabe smart people would retort: "correlation is not causation" trying to sound smart.

    To deny the uncomfortable reality sitting 24 inches in front of their face.

    You're comparing that to this streaming drama series?

    Show is intended for white suburban soccer moms so they can cry and say how awful all this type of prejudice is. Enjoy

    They need to lie about black victimization to cover up the real truth. I think most people at this point with social media even know the group who commits far and away the most interracial violence. Lying about it is for justice and equality. Telling the truth is racism lol

    I donít think itís far-fetched to believe those things happened in the era itís depicting

    Much worse happened in those days, so seems believable to me

    But I donít have an interest in that style of show so wonít be watching

    You'd have to see it Krak

    Yes some things happened and it was bad.

    But not even close to this extent.

    They go as far as making up that there were/are 'White' evil entities looking to harm black ppl as well. (AKA 'white devil')
    Just totally ridiculous.

    It even says at the beginning of episode 1 that all of this actually happened between certain dates, misleading ppl who can't think for themselves that all of it is real-life.

    I saw the trailer and that was enough for me...

    My thinking is even if it did happen exactly as is shown, wtf can I do about it today. Weíve come along ways since those days and the pendulum continues to move.

    I, like you, want racism out of this world. But itís a two way street. Hard to free the world of racism with shows like this being blasted.

    Even if itís portraying actual events, thereís a certain edge to it thatís intent is not educational but to create an emotional response and probably a negative one.

    Not the way to heal old wounds, imo
