Ice Cube Challenges Race Issues On New Reality Show
Rapper/actor Ice Cube is testing racial stereotypes in a new reality TV show in which whites go black and blacks go white. On upcoming provocative US show BLACK WHITE, an African-American family swaps places with an all-white family - and both groups trade colour using pioneering make-up techniques. Ice Cube is the executive producer of the new show, which debuts next week (beg06MAR06), and is convinced the programme will be a big hit. He says, "Once I knew the make-up would work, I knew the show could not miss - it shows us there is a difference, there is a divide."
