Its 2012 and you would think there would be a somewhat accurate, better depiction or realistic TV show for the African American woman today. Sadly, there is not. Instead, I see more stereo types than ever. The lack of consideration and understanding of the woman of color today is very obvious. Black women are constantly bombarded with ads for television shows geared at the black female audience giving platforms to women who are relevant due to who they have slept with, who they married, who they divorced and got paid by, had kids by, what videos they were in or trying to launch a music career for the 20th time. Sorry BET, VH1, Bravo and everyone else. We as black women are saying we cannot relate to that. We are asking and petitioning for you to stop falling on these stereotypes and saying it speaks to “black women”.
