Observations of an Invisible Woman

Dear Maury…I Hate Your Show

Dear Mr. Povich,

If you are reading this, I wanted to let you know that you, along with Jerry Springer, have single-handedly caused white AmeriKlans to delve deeper into the belief of all racial stereotypes about blacks. Mr. Povich, seeing how you’re from Washington, D.C., a place with approximately 48% blacks, I find it hard to believe that every black person you’ve met has the name Jacqueshia, is obese, a high school dropout, unattractive, speaks Ebonics, lives in the ghetto, is on food stamps whilst driving a BMW, wears Baby Phat, has a TON of gold jewelry (some of which is worn in the mouth), sells crack for a living, pimps, prostitutes and has over 200 lovers by the age of 10 and needs a paternity test to determine the child’s biological father.

I know that Paramount Television pays you handsomely for telling these lies. But I implore you, what about your conscience? How do you sleep at night knowing that you, an educated white man is apart of the vicious systematic betrayal, downfall and poisoning of the black image? Being educated, and Jewish, I’ll bet my bottom dollar that you’ve had issues with AmeriKlans too. Why help them perpetuate this stereotype that just won’t die? Would you have victims of acid burning come on your show and say, ” Well ladies, next time, don’t put onions in the sauce. You know your husband hates it?”

Mr. Povich, my mother tells me, Truthbetold, love of money is the root of ALL evil! And how right she is! I know your show is meant for entertainment purposes only, but here in AmeriKlan, whites believe anything that shows blacks in a negative light. It serves as a conformation that grandpa was right about “those people.”

I also want you to know that I know( FOR A FACT) that your guests are actors. A starving actor, desperate to get his/her first big break will do just about anything to eat and pay the rent. Yes, the burden lies partially on them but more on you. You’re already rich. You should be using your money and fame to fight evil, not condone it. I’m ashamed of you. And, truthfully, you should be ashamed of yourself.

Sincerely,

Truthbetold.

P.S.

Your show blows!

  1. I have never understood the appeal of his show which is blatantly racist. But I guess whites enjoy it as it shows the real ‘negroes’ in all their ‘glory’. I refuse to watch it.

  2. Whites love this minstrel show as self validation that they are better.

  3. I’m so glad you said that. I’m also glad I’m not alone:

    I wonder who else thinks the same way.

  4. Forty million other blacks, probably.

  5. One thing though, I thought the show was produced by NBC Universal, the same company behind Jerry Springer and Steve Wilkos.

  6. Why do we in the African American community continue to help racist programs perpetuate these stereotypes? for a chance to be seen on televison looking crazy. this is what happens when foolishness is encouraged. We have got to do better as a people. all this f****ry and foolishness need to cease. All these ratched reality shows need to be done away with. when we encourage subpar behavior and call it entertainment. we as a people don’t have the luxury of this ratchedness. we must be the kings and queens that our ancestors paved the way for. Peace and Blessings.

  7. Mary
    Thank you! It seems that a poor image of ourselves is the catalyst for this buffonery. If it’s not whites who mock us, it’s us that mock ourselves…all for a cheap laugh. And…to be liked.

  8. Truth, My God what is happening to us? where is our pride? I believe some of us habor hatred against ourselves. What happened to James Brown mighty anthem “Say it Loud I’m Black and I’m Proud.? We are not some of us are not carrying ourselves like the Kings and Queens we are destined to be. Thank You Sister for letting me speak wy truth. Peace and Blessing to you.

  9. No, thank you…we need each other for support.

  10. In this country being black and proud is being seen as being uppity. But being seen as a stereotype seems to get you somewhere in the entertainment biz.

    I agree. It’s not just Maury that’s the problem or any other talk show or reality show. There are certain black people who will jump at the chance for 15 minutes of fame even if they have to humiliate themselves, and as you know, black people on TV is information for white people.

    The only explanation that explains why this happens boils down to money. I heard Maury pays his guests to come on his show and the info came from someone who was in the TV business.

  11. Good points. It’s a shame that reality TV is usually done at our expense.

  12. Unfortunately, reality TV is popular because of the people’s taste for guilty pleasures. A sizable portion of the public wants to see other human beings suffer, go insane and destroy each other. This is why shows like The Bad Girls Club, Jersey Shore, Basketball Wives, Mob Wives, and Dance Moms are on the air.

    I just noticed that most shows on my list are about women.

    They want the (pardon my french) bitchiest, loneliest, craziest, angriest, and poorly behaved women and men to appear on these shows. Then, they want to try and manipulate the action to make the show more tense. Next, they will edit and produce footage in which fights and confrontations occur. And finally, the public will eat it up, talk about it, watch clips online, post clips online, and the possibility of another season will ensue.

    In the end it doesn’t matter if racism is at play with shows like Maury because racism is a means of entertainment in the media.

  13. The Dumbing Down of AmeriKlan at its best!

  14. You should send this to his show’s email. I doubt if he would read it, or if he did read it would take it seriously, but at least you spoke out.

  15. Maury knows EXACTLY what he’s doing…he’s Jewish and therefore no stranger to AmeriKlans hatred. But there’s too much money to be made.

  16. Let’s not forget:
    Sister Moms
    Toddlers & Tiaras
    My Big Fat Gypsy (whatever the hell it’s called these days)
    18 & Counting
    Little People / Little Family
    My 600-lb. Life

    TLC isn’t about learning – it’s nothing but a modern-day circus sideshow for those willing to sell themselves for 15 seconds of the new breed of ‘fame’.

    The History Channel isn’t about history anymore – hell, it should be called the freakin’ ‘Hitler / White Trash Channel’ for all of the subject matter it airs!

    MTV and VH1 aren’t about music anymore.

    BET isn’t owned by black people anymore, nor does it portray black people as real individuals – just a monolith built on stereotypes.

    Didn’t mean to interject…I broke my rule for myself, LOL – just wanted to add my vote as someone who is sickened by these so-called ‘reality’ shows, as well as the racism in pretty much every form of media out there.

  17. Sepultura13,

    TV is now a modern day Minstrel/White Trash Show. And it contributes to the dumbing down of America. I suspect that this is being done on purpose…to render us stupid so we won’t know if we’re coming or going. Which is why I don’t watch TV.

  18. Sepultura13 and Truthbetold,

    Considering how almost all of the television we see is owned by a few white males, it’s not surprising that all we see nowadays is regurgitated, mind-numbing, white supremacist bullshit.

  19. Guys, the funny thing is, they are also in the mess and don’t even realize it. Look at the jersey shore…

  20. I am in fact delighted to read this weblog posts which consists of plenty of useful facts, thanks for providing these information.

  21. brothawolf, it is NBC Universal now. From what I remember, Paramount syndicated his first show in the mid-90s, when it was more everyday topics, and not the crap it’s become. I will admit it was a guilty pleasure c. 2006, but it’s more than run its course and I’ve learned my lesson.

    Actors or not (the “guests” are definitely staged and coached to act a certain way…ever notice how the distraught mothers ALWAYS run to the right when it turns out Da’quanavis is NOT the father?!), the show is pathetic and panders to every ghetto stereotype possible. How people find it entertaining every single day is beyond me.

  22. It used to be when imparting information for the public good so citizens can participate effectively in a democratic society has given way to audience-building, giving the customer what he or she wants, and constant competition in a world of markets.

    Information is a commodity, and private TV networks are supposed to make money. All stations, publicly funded or not, want to maintain or expand their viewership. Simply put, you can tell less truth and make more money… there is an underlying tension between ‘what the people want to see’ and ‘the important stories that should be presented to people.'”

    The “old” journalism is about keeping citizens informed for the public good, where information, which wasn’t a commodity, allowed citizens to hold their democratic leaders accountable. The “new” journalism is about using whatever attracts eyeballs (the “news” loosely defined, which then allows for stories about cute pets, scandalous affairs and shocking violence) as a means to an end of building the biggest audience, increasing revenue streams and showing sustained corporate growth.

    Here is an interesting video I stumbled upon regarding Black stereotypes on television.

  24. Thanks Mickey! The one eyed monster called Tel-lie-vision has done a number on society.
