There Goes The Neighborhood

Welcome to the Neighborhood, an ABC reality series that seemingly promotes racist and anti-homosexual behavior, was pulled before its debut for being too controversial.

The series' producers insist their intent was to promote debate about prejudice and people's fear of differences, not give a forum to racist fuckwads.

The six-episode show was to follow three families in Austin, Texas who are given the chance to choose a new neighbor for a house on their street.

Each family initially wants someone similar to them- white and conservative. Instead, they must choose from families that are black, Hispanic and Asian; two gay white men who've adopted a black child; a couple covered in tattoos and piercings; a couple who met at the woman's initiation as a witch; and a poor white family.
