I'm really enjoying these new shows. I want to give a quick shout out to The haves and have nots, too. (Wasn't that finale awesome?)
For years we have been asking for shows that showcased Black people in diverse aspects of life. At least I was. Not all of us are languishing in ghettos, or barely educated and perpetual dregs on society.
I was tired of the same ole rehashed, slave dramas (which I never watched) or the, woe-as-me, down-trodden manless, Black woman narratives.
There can be elements of negative aspects of the Black community, but I don't care for that being the only voice for us.
Good shows, keep 'em coming.
