It’s shameful that A&E Network would produce the Generation KKK documentary series and NY Times Arts would review it.This is unacceptable. Both should lose subscribers for trying to normalize a domestic terrorist group.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, A&E embedded with members of the KKK who are trying to distance themselves from the violent hate group.
Would A&E do a similar documentary series on al Qaeda or ISIS? Where do we draw the line? Donald Trump’s presidential campaign brought out the worst in America. He claims he wants to unite the country? Well, good luck with that.
Now is a good time to show A&E Network that we don’t have to accept this as normal.
There’s a reason why Generation KKK is trending on Twitter this morning and many people are upset. They are giving racists a platform.
I'm so old, I remember when America was ashamed of its racists. Now we reward them with shows like Generation KKK. https://t.co/tO1HYwTFYX

Normalization and legitimization = giving cute names like Alt-Right and Generation KKK to violent white supremacists. This makes a Roof.
