With understanding of other people in short supply, why would some groups object to a TV program that increases understanding of fellow Americans? I do not understand the objection. I will not attempt to assign motive to someone else. All I can say is that some men/women will only fear/hate people who are different or dress differently. If I learn that the other people are just like me, face the same issues I do and act/react in a similar fashion, how can I hate or fear someone just like myself?
