Is This Racist ?

A white family and a black family find out what it's like to switch lives. The two families trade places to get a taste of how the other one lives. Through the use of extensive makeup, the African-American Sparks family from Atlanta will appear white, and the Caucasian Wurgel family from Santa Monica, California will look black. This was a T.V. show that aired Mar 08, 2006. Do you think this is racist?

The reason why i post this is cause i was having a argument with a black friend about this. She said it was racist i said it wasn't. I asked a white friend what he thought. He said it was funny. I just wanted to see what other people thought.

not all black people are racist. I cant speak for every black person but i am not racist. And i know of other black people who are not racist. Just like not all white people are racist. It all depends on the person.

It's not racist, because nobody is being deprived of any rights due to the fact that they have changed the colour of their skin. Debate over.

Japanese people in general are very racist. They aren't all racist, but most of them are, and they really pity black's they look down on them as if they were a lesser kind. It's not even a fact of hate, it's just considering them as way less. Europeans are quite ok but still not up to their standards. I repeat, not all of them think like that, but a lot do !

@cuntscab that is more like a opinion then a fact. And also wrong.

making generalized statements about the cultures and tendencies of any particular race isn't necessarily racist... but i do think its funny that the black people still look black, but the white people look really black.

@thatdude, I said FUN fact, and if you see it as an opinion, then how can it be wrong?

In my experiances, even dark skinned blacks are racist towards lighter skinned black people, I've seen it with my own eyes and heard many of interviews of black people saying that. TD420, you said you're lite skinned, has that ever happened to you?

In college these bitches were trying to start a sorority where they put everyone to the 'paper bag test.' If you were lighter than a paper bag you weren't allowed in.

thats no different than yankees and rednecks hating each other. black people arent the only victims of anger and hatred but they act like they are
6 years ago
yankees and rednecks? If you mean North and South no one in the North really is bitter toward Southerners....at all. We think it's laughable that you all still wave your rebel flags. Btw, there are plenty of rednecks up here too.

The black family just look more like they all have a light complexion rather than being Caucasian.

It's not just the lips fries, something is just off in general. Isn't it weird though? The white family passes much better than the black one. I wonder why.

is what racist? the concept or the pic? i don't see anything racist at all..
6 years ago
I don't think it is. But there was other people that didn't like the fact that a white family was in black makeup and a black family in white makeup. Pretending to be white and black. The show had the them try to act talk and be the other race.

i suppose if it was just white people acting black i could see how maybe some people might take offense
6 years ago
but when black people act white it's the least offensive thing in the world

that's because nobody wants to be black

im proud to be black. i fucken love it

If the show proves that they are treated differently because of skin color, society is racist.

I saw a similar experiment once to see how willing people were to help fat people. A hot chick needed help with something and people flocked. Same chick put on a fat suit and nobody cared.

I want to see this show.

Not really a good way to answer the question without actually seeing the show...

you could clearly see that the white family look less happy in black

its funny..i like it!..screw stereotyping!..i'm an individual who HAPPENS to be African American (or negro or colored or black)..but actually, i label myself as 'human being', just like the rest of you should!...

I've been saying that for years. A person is hated for the kind of person that he/she is, not by the color of your skin.

Thats so true toolman...I work with Africans and the color of their skin has never bothered me...they come in and work and other than speaking their own language, which causes issues with the rednecks...theyre much better behaved than black americans

The white guy got made over into a black Steve Carell. That's comedy.

How is this racist?

Pfft, this experiment was done with Lois Lane back in the 1970s.

Here we go again with Hollywood starting something that doesn't need to be stirred up, just causing more tension between the races to start with. So if somthing did occur, do you think there would be n uproar over it. Television is for the stupid.

So the show is apprently called black:white and is produced by Ice Cube. Can somebody find the show? All I can find is interracial porno...
