She acted Black... So, F... What?
11 March 2013 | by (Cyprus) – See all my reviews

This is an episode that really irritated me. She was into the Afro-American culture... so what?!?!? Why on Earth it irritated them so much? What happened to the open-mindedness, equal treatment, tolerance etc? Am I the only one that saw the irony in this: 100 years ago if a colored person dared to behave in a certain way he or she was deemed as "trying to be a white" and was treated with contempt. And now I see the exactly same and opposite to happen. Well, sorry for pointing it out, but it's racism in BOTH situations.

I rated it 6 and not below 5 because it may have helped other people also see this irony and stop instantly disliking people because "they don't act like their race".

Good heavens! I never expected to see this in an afro-American show...
