Why AmeriKlan Will Never Change
Last night, I did something I rarely do.
I turned on the TV. Television for me has become a modern-day version of a minstrel show as far as we’re concerned. I stopped watching when Mr. Redstone took over BET and changed it into the “Darkie ” channel. And please, for the love of God, do NOT get me started on Jerry Springer and Maury Povich.
I was flipping through the channels and came to some program; I think it was a reality show that showed this bride-to-be, a black woman, yelling in someone’s face about how this was her special day and everyone had to do what she said, follow her rules, yada, yada, yada…
Guys, let’s be real.
Most women on their special day are so nervous about the “I do’s” and getting to hair and makeup that we don’t have time to have an epic meltdown. Now, now…I know that this is being done in the name of television ratings but still…aren’t blacks portrayed badly enough? We’re welfare mom’s who prostitute ourselves for fried chicken, drug addicts, she-gang members…and now badly-behaving brides?
When will it end? Television is made for “entertainment purposes only” in AmeriKlan. But why is it always done at our expense?
