    Everyday African-American (Black) women? I’m a Black women, regardless of the Non American part, this show is “Reality TV” and does NOT represent the lives and personality of the everyday woman AT ALL. How many Black women do you know in real life that act like this? Yes, you will continue to like this show because, you are not part of a race that is always ridiculed, stereotyped, judged and represented in a negative light. You will never know what it’s like to see shows like this from a Black woman’s or Black person’s perspective.

    I don’t think this show is reflective of black women. I think it’s reflective of the people on the cast. If people want to look at shows like these, and generalize an entire population then that particular person is ignorant. Do people look at shows like Honey Boo Boo and generalize the entire white population? I do think there should be more shows that portray African Americans in a positive light, but it doesn’t seem like there’s a market for that. These types of shows should be looked as pure entertainment, nothing more. I actually wrote an article similar to this,
