...but too important to not show. I'm binging the series and I'm constantly out of words. I am almost 40 years old, white and from Germany and thanks to my parents, racism was never an issue or part of my childhood. But as I grow older and learn more about it, I realize how privileged I am for simply being born that way. This series makes me mad and aggressive, to see what happened to people, and this is only one family, the tip of the iceberg. I also learn how deeply routed the casualness of racism is in American culture up to this day. Of course there is improvement, but we as a society have still miles (or better lightyears) to go. This show has taught me a lot so far and I'm excited to see where it is going. The bad rating (only 4.8 at the time I write this) of the whole show can only be evidence, that there is still not enough awareness that it's not only about today, but how many lives were destroyed on the way.
