When we rise is a new docu-drama on ABC. It sets in the 1960s, and tells the stories of real life events of homosexuals, blacks and oppressed women that are trying to change society. Seems like a decent show, based on that information. Nothing strange, at least. But what is strange is the enormous hatred that is directed at the series. People bashing the series, having not even seen it. They base their feelings and opinions only on the trailer. Now, I may be to the left politically, a feminist and a humanitarian. I am trying to overlook that, and be somewhat neutral. And I cannot for my life realize what all this hatred is about. Normally when a show doesn't interest you, you simply just ignore it. It doesn't make you hateful. ABC had to remove the first trailer because the YouTube comments were filled with negativity. They posted the same clip again, starting fresh - and it's the same story. The comments are filled with hatred. "Gay shit". It's as if you are pro gay rights, women's right and black people rights - then you are a nasty liberal who is living in la la land. Here are 3 clips - click to the youtube page to read comments if you dare.
