Posted a link above. Interested in what people think. To me, it doesn't sound like it will be very realistic, since it makes no mention of how the freed slaves will be given anything other than the states. No money, no diplomatic ties, etc. Yet in the article the producers say it will show how prosperous the new black country consisting of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama will be and how downtrodden 'regular' America is going to be. Seems naive to me to assume they would have instantly prospered. They did have farming skills, but with no real capital, how did they get a start?

Also there are tons of countries in Africa that are majority black and not doing very well. Is this just supposed to be a shot at white people? What do you guys think?
