Yeah, it’s intense. The first installment was infuriating. I watched all four in one sitting, back-to-back, and was an emotional wreck for the next two days. Slavery is America’s original sin and while it’s been abolished, the institutional racism is still in effect.

The corruption. The rush to simply find five black youths — any blacks BOYS — the systemic coercion … let me stop. It’s a lot to take it. Let alone the fact that’s TRUE. And you know this isn’t an isolated case. It’s simply astonishing.

It’s like America is on fire which Orange Nero lines his kids and his own pockets. It’s a sad time to be in America. I hope the world knows that not all Americans voted for this putz.

Okay… that’s enough from me for now. Good to hear from you, Erik. Look me up when you’ve finished the series and have had time to digest it.
