TV One: Cancel the contract for Stacy Francis from R&B Divas LA season 4

As a woman of color I am very hurt and annoyed about the depiction of Women of Color in the media. Our society, unfortunately, has declined into a state of moral turpitude. Our mainstream media is based upon the belittling and deformation of the African American people. The viewer must realize that to watch these negative images, without putting said images into its proper context, imbues the viewer with a negative worldview about Women of Color. When impressionable young people see these types of shows, they tend to emulate the celebrities in those shows; they want to live vicariously through such icons, hoping to relate, to find their identity.

This is problematic.

If the only example a young person has is that of a mean, selfish, and self absorbed person, what would become of that young impressionable child? If all the public consumers see this show as a representation of Women of Color as foolhardiness, ratchet, conniving, back stabbing  and materialistic, would those same consumers ever see them positively? The African American community is hurting in more ways than one and we don't need any more negativity. With that being said I petition TV One to do the right thing and remove Stacy Francis from this show immediately. Stacy Francis has done nothing on this show that represents anything in regards to the upliftment and empowerment of the African American community specifically Women of Color. The viewers have spoken and we will no longer partake in negative stereotypes and propaganda that is causing division and destruction amongst Women of Color in the media.  We have a voice and our voice will be heard. We demand respect!!!!
