borderline dookie (also im black)
1 November 2017 | by yunggunkSee all my reviews

show is kinda trash. I really wanted to like this show. I really hate how outraged the main character is all the time, makes him only semi likable, but maybe he's supposed to grow on us. good supporting cast though. except the son. little dude is a bad actor.

The over exaggerated race narrative is necessary to the show and, maybe its important that the show even exists but, Its annoying to me.

I think that dear white people did a better job, in the sense that the racial happenings seemed more realistic

this show is dookie just like survivors remorse

i'll probably keep watching though haha ... for the culture.

(edit). it gets better
