    • I will for Annie 🙂 I want to show support to shows that will portray bw in good light, so I’ll watch the first couple episodes and see how it goes.

      and YES there are sooo many reboots lately which is good and bad.

      What about you??

      • I plan to as well and for the same reasons. I with there were more black ensemble dramas that presented black women, and men for that matter, in a more positive nuanced light. I feel like we only get to do stupid comedies or reality shows.

        semi related and not to hijack the post but…
        What’s your opinion on Single Ladies? I’ve never seen it and I’ve heard mixed things

  1. We don’t HAVE to do these crappy shows. Black women who don’t care about their image have no problem signing up for them. Have you heard of the Adventures of an Awkward black girl by Issa Rae? There could be 100x more black women starting their own shows like she has done online.

    As for “Single Ladies”…there are certain networks I avoid and VH1 and BET are at the top of this list. They are notorious for “coon” characters in their programming and I won’t support them by watching their shows.

    When I do have time to watch tv, its usually fun networks like HGTV/Food Network/Travel Channel, and sometimes Bravo. HGTV is entertaining and educational and I see positive and everyday black women, in partucular bw in interracial marriages.

    • “We don’t HAVE to do these crappy shows. Black women who don’t care about their image have no problem signing up for them.”

      True. lol I just wish more people were cognoscente of the potential impacts of their portrayals. But alas…

      “Have you heard of the Adventures of an Awkward black girl by Issa Rae?”
      Yes 🙂 I just marathoned it yesterday. I really really like it.

      ” HGTV is entertaining and educational and I see positive and everyday black women, in partucular bw in interracial marriages.”
      I’m a bit of an HGTV junkie myself and I agree it’s refreshing to see positive everyday women- that’s the best combat stereotypes and ignorance.

      I really like this Anna Julia Cooper quote: “Only the black woman can say ‘when and where I enter, in the quiet, undisputed dignity of my womanhood, without violence and without suing or special patronage, then and there the whole Negro race enters with me.'”
