    Image via GettyA&E is coming under criticism for announcing a documentary series called Generation KKK​, which follows members of the racist hate group and family members who want to distance themselves from the Klan. Some will see the show as an interesting look inside of the oldest and one of the most notorious hate groups to be born in the United States, but others see it as a vile platform for a group that has openly hated and targeted people of color for decades and endorsed Donald Trump for president.

    The network was certainly aiming to be topical by following Klan members and their family around for a year in a time when hate crimes against vulnerable populations are on the rise. But for many, this is precisely the reason why the hate group doesn't need an additional platform for their ideas.

    White supremacist terrorist Dylann Roof was described as having been "self-radicalized." No. Normalization and legitimization creates Roofs.

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

    .@AETV is replacing 'Duck Dynasty' with 'Generation KKK". No one will know the difference.

    I am disgusted that @AETV will give the fk'n KKK a platform to try to normalize their hate in 'Generation KKK'. It's NOT ok.
    9:00 AM - 19 Dec 2016

    Rob Sharenow, A&E's general manager, told the New York Times that the network tried to strike a balance with the show and aimed not to propagate hate with Generation KKK. "We certainly didn’t want the show to be seen as a platform for the views of the KKK," Sharenow told the Times. "The only political agenda is that we really do stand against hate."
    Generation KKK will air on A&E next year.

    Who the fuck wants to see a show about the KKK? I know NO one who would be interested in this. Not even Trump supporters. Srsly.

    Remember when A&E was a classy net work with shows like "Law and Order" re runs and "MI5" and "Biography"?

    *sigh* Those were the days.

    Yep. Now they're going the way of TLC. Pure trash.

    ETA: I just sent them a tweet telling them they've lost a viewer.

    This is why TV executives are such whores...they are sensing the mood of the country right now and will sell what they think people are buying. I despise them all.

    BUMP.
    I told them almost verbatim: I've always known that most TV execs are whores and pimps, thanks for proving my point my creating this TV show in your foul attempts to normalize bigotry. I'm telling all of my friends and associates to boycott your stank ass network!!!

    I feel a bit better.

    I just sent an email, calling this the television equivalent of rubbernecking, and that human car crashes should be kept off TV. I saw enough merchandize of those Duck Fuck assholes, I don't want to see the KKK now.

    There was this documentary on CNN a couple of months back where this black comedian visited KKK meetings (no it wasn't like the Dave Chappell skit); he asked to meet with them and interview them. The klansmen were very gracious and polite and they drank beer together and hung out. Well, the black guy is like "So, what's the deal? Why do you hate people of other races?" And their response was very casual, very blunt. "We don't HATE other races, we just don't think we should have to interact/mix with other races." And the guy goes, "So, what if my little 5 year old daughter wanted to play with your 5 year old daughter, and they get along. What the problem?" The klansman goes "I wouldn't allow my 5 year old to play with your 5 year old. And that's nothing against your daughter. Please don't be offended, but I just don't believe races should mix." And that was it. They weren't mean or ugly about it nor were they apologetic about it, either.

    And this is my response when I saw it:
