Racist and stereotyping!
17 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Just viewed the first episode, and it will definitely be the last, for me.

This show doesn't just racially portray white people (police all white and scum bags), but it does the same to blacks, as pimps, drug dealers, rioters, and dishonest on all levels.

The premise for this hero was simple - getting bad guys, but CW has brought in several social justice issues to make it a sh-- show of muddled garbage.

**They have even managed to make the hero unlikeable! LOL!

I was so looking forward to this one...oh, well, we still have Luke Cage to pick up the slack.
