Fake?: Rap Star’s, Lefty Producer’s Reality Show on Race

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 ), 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.

Ice Cube: Dividing America, One Fake Race Documentary @ a Time

Just another example of why you shouldn’t believe most of what you see on TV. This unfortunate edition begins in March.

A big HUH??? WTF on this one…..
YOU usually give us intelligently impaired ‘libs’ a link to look up and understand what you’re raving about, but i haven’t a clue what you’re talking about HERE!!!
IS Ice Cube trying to do another *Do the Right Thing*…the movie that launched Knicks courtside midget/mascot into filmmaker legitimacy??? Or is the Ice Cube/RJ Cutler team doing a latter-day version of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion’???
i COULD google-up what you’re alluding to, but i EXPECT you to give me the lowdown Ms Schlussel…THAT is WHY i reverently read your column!

Suspense is killin’ me over whether this’ll be a
makeover of ‘Black Like Me’ by John Howard Griffin, first published in 1961( & re-published last year) about Griffin’s makeover and “life” as a black man, or an original by one trick foo’s like Ice Cube & his yutz partner, to show that thangs are “equal to or worse than” 1961.
