It’s not like we need another polarizing show focusing on race. But that didn’t stop the FX network from hiring actor/rapper Ice Cube and “filmmaker” R.J. Cutler to do yet another show on it, “Black. White.”
But will the six-part “documentary” on Blacks and Whites made to look like the opposite race be a fake? If Cutler’s previous FX series, “30 Days,” which he did with McDonald’s trasher Morgan Spurlock, is any indication, the answer is a resounding YES!
As I write in the Wall Street Journal (and here), Cutler and Spurlock billed “30 Days” as a “reality” show when it was anything but. It was a fake, with a pre-determined Michael Moore style ending.
Just another example of why you shouldn’t believe most of what you see on TV. This unfortunate edition begins in March.
