I really don't know why anyone would make this unless it's political.

Don't know either. It's throwing more shade toward the south.

the more controversial,the higher the ratings.

There's a difference between being controversial, and then down right labeling an entire region of the US racist, which is pretty much what this show is doing.

well,we were racists back then.we treated black people worse than awful.

We as in who exactly? Because free blacks as well as Indians, owned black slaves.
No matter how much we may disagree, doesn't mean I don't respect your opinion nor your freedom to speak it. Doesn't mean I don't have to agree with it either.

Oh, and HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!!!!

I agree. I'm no more responsible for what my ancestors did than they are of what I do.

Even if you take the controversy out of the equation on this new show, I'm just not a big fan of altered history plots. Real history is far too fascinating to waste time on what could / might have happened.

And on the protests... what the heck is wrong with people! If someone does or say something that a group of people dislikes there is an uprising to stop them from doing or saying it. People trying to control people. The public holds all the power. Just don't watch it. What you ignore and don't give attention to almost always goes away from deprivation.

I love the Wyatt family crest and coat of arms!
