The Black and White Cookie
9 March 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That's what many of the people in our hometown of Waukesha, WI reffered to this show as when it first came out. it portrayed that the life of black people and white people are very similar. we saw this in watching separate shows, like Family Matters and Full House, but never saw the message in the same show. worth taking a look at if it ever comes back on syndication.
