"Fresh Prince of Bel Air" surpasses Harry Potter books in popularity among Gitmo detaineesThe 168 captives currently residing at the U.S. prison base in Cuba have access to an extensive entertainment selection: the main library houses 18,000 books, 2,730 movies, 390 video games, and 1,235 magazines, according to Joint Task Force Guantanamo spokesperson Capt. Jennifer Palmeri. The books and movies are delivered upon requests to prisoners’ cells or recreation rooms by guards. And if the camp doesn’t have the particular book or movie that an inmate wants, camp leadership can buy it for him or her, provided it is vetted for any potential controversy, said Palmeri.But recently many prisoners have been asking for the same thing: Will Smith as the titular Fresh Prince.“‘Fresh Prince’ became popular after a few people watched the first two seasons and decided to request the rest of the series,” Palmeri said.A camp librarian identified only as Milton said the Fresh Prince show has now surpassed the previous favorite, the Harry Potter books, according to the Miami Herald, which first reported the Fresh Prince’s curious popularity. As the Muslim holy month of Ramadan wears on, entertainment becomes increasingly important for Muslim inmates who are fasting from dawn to sundown, Milton said. The Fresh Prince series has stepped in to fill the void.

I'm all for them being thoroughly indoctrinated in Western culture, now if we can only get them interested in critical and logical thinking, and maybe even comparative religion so they can see just how freaking idiotic they've been.

I enjoyed the Fresh Prince when it was on the air also.
The Big Bang Theory is pretty good also.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
