How groundbreaking are they really, when the representation hasn’t changed in twenty years?
Why should I give a shit about a whitebread cast and their whitebread issues?
Like, I’m sorry. But I’d prefer to watch shows that explore black women’s sexuality, black women in the professional world, people of color and their adventures. Afrofuturist fantasy. Or being young, black and poor as fuck.
When that becomes as mainstream as these tired-ass sitcoms, then I’ll be hype for the ‘new era of television’.
Fuck it otherwise.
