Does the Black in America series help, hurt, or has no influence in Black America? Do African Americans pay attention or do White people watch to get an “insight” into Black America. Now, it is impossible to judge the entire Black experience through a documentary. Blackness is complicated and many times these documentaries don’t show the middle class. It’s either you’re poor or you’re fortunate.
Also, this new installment assumes Black success must be juxtaposed against white success and/or white assistance. Blackness is never judged on its own merits.
