Very Offensive
25 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched this particular episode, and even though I have always enjoyed this show, I must say that this particular episode left little to be desired. The whole theme bothered me, especially when the Black baby is treated as though it is simply Black and nothing more. The white mother was of no consideration at all, and this in itself is unrealistic. I just didn't like the way the story was written, with such a warped sense of understanding about the nature of human beings in regard to skin colour. There was a superiority about this episode that related to the audience that while it is perfectly normal to be White it is abnormal and strange to be of another ethnicity. Racism does exist and this is a fact, but the way the show portrayed this story line was extremely offensive to me and displayed the efforts of an irresponsible writer, who should never have tackled a subject matter such as this one without knowing the facts. Black people, whether in that time or now, are just as worthy and human as anyone else. The father and child were portrayed as anything but human and this is what really bothered me.
