This show makes me want to puke!
16 March 2006 | by (chicago) – See all my reviews

The adults in that house aren't really great representatives of either race. The white adults are just really awkward and sheltered (especially the wife), and the black adults are extremely stubborn and too judgmental. I live in Chicago and the city and suburbs here are pretty diverse but at the same time very segregated. I don't think there is anything wrong with a person of any color finding comfort being in their own community, that's just how people are and that's not racist. This isn't a culture clash, this is a room full of idiots clashing. It didn't even take one episode to realize that these people just didn't like each other and weren't going to get along at all…Bruno is an oaf, his wife Carmen couldn't be more sheltered and naive, Brian and Renee are both stubborn and far more closed minded than Bruno and Carmen, which is ironic because they constantly accuse Bruno and Carmen of being closed minded. I think the most interesting thing about this show was when Bruno told Brian that he believes black people are conditioned to look for racism and misinterpret a lot of things as racism. I think that this is a fair statement, but I also think it's fair for black people to feel that way. I grew up hating the Green Bay Packers because my Dad is a Bears fan and Bears fans always hate Packers fans…Brian's parents grew up in the times of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr., they experienced some really ugly racism first hand! Is it implausible to have that sentiment passed down a few generations? Take a look at the teenagers in this show, they're the only ones who appear sane because they're so far displaced from that type of behavior because they just don't really have that type of experience anymore. I'm not saying that racism doesn't exist anymore, the truth is as long as there are people on earth there are going to be idiots, and as long as there are idiots, there is going to be racism. I honestly just wish that we had better representation all around on this show, the show definitely would be easier to watch if they had people who weren't such idiots.
