  • Being a member of the TNBC family, Hang Time does it's own version of racial tolerance. This time Silk deals with a mother, who doesn't want her son around based on race.moreless

    Silk and Michael sign up for a Big Brother Program and all goes well with Daniel. That is until Daniel's mother meets Silk.

    She doesn't want her son around Silk becasue he is black. An interesting episode that ends with Daniel not caring what his mother thinks about Silk.

    The only issue would be with Daniel's mother, if she has this much of an issue with Daniel being around Blacks, why would they live in a state with a rather large Black population?

    Aside from that issue, this was a decent episode to watch and a nice little discussion piece for a teacher to use.moreless
