    One of the things I really appreciated about the premier episode is letting us the viewer sit with the issues that Randall was facing as a black man who grew up in a white family. And with the uncomfortableness of his white siblings response. I appreciate that they didn’t let Kate off the hook, there was no “it’s okay” moment. As a white woman, coming to terms with my privilege, acknowledging and confronting systemic issues and ongoing wrongs is necessary and it is not always going to be easy or comfortable.

    1. Blake says:

      Thanks Jane! Yes, that definitely seems to be an issue they will be confronting very hard this year. My feeling is that no matter where one stands in terms of this issue on the political scale, it’s always good to bring awareness to the conversation. Sometimes there is no “right” answer. Sometimes we can’t solve something immediately, and that’s ok. Like Kate says, we just have to sit with it and try to be more aware in the future.
