I think PBS is missing a huge opportunity to promote their program.
Ben's Mea Culpa, if he truly believes what he is saying now, is the perfect opportunity to highlight these issues and raise all kinds of awareness.
I can't believe Gates and Co. missed the first rule of starting genealogy.
"What you are about to learn may uncover some unpleasant truths. Are you prepared to accept these truths no matter what you learn?" Remember, you are not responsible for your Ancestors.
Ben did not have an uncommon initial reaction and he later has the appropriate response that we all need to be aware of.
Ben's Mea Culpa show could be huge and transformative for a lot of people.
And a great boon to genealogy!
I would think Hollywood and PBS would be all over such an opportunity.
