Reality TV and its effect on African American Culture.

Before you read this let me warn you that this post might contain some profanity.

Let me start by saying when did Reality shows become the new HIT thing on TV, Like what happened to the well scripted and interesting shows with great meaning. What happened to the days when people will get excited to see shows like Martin OR Girlfriends not Love and HipHop or perfectly scripted shows like Family Matters not shit like “Baby Mamas Atlanta, Virginia, Denver & Los Angeles” yes thats actually a fucking show in the works. This new craze is absolutely ridiculous and i’ll say its amongst the reasons why black women still get disrespected till this day because majority of these shows are filled grown African American women making fools of themselves and like what woman with any sense of pride or dignity will sign up to do a show where she brags about being the Baby Momma of a Rapper what pride is in that?

Like is this what my kids will grow up watching because it seems to be taking over TV, look at shows like Keeping with the Kardashain and see how they try to portray these women as some classy business savvy ladies, why the fuck can’t they do that with black women or women of color in general, it really bothers me. Then we look at the men on the show who are all fucking egomaniacs and take pride in mistreating women or being players and living THAT LIFE which honestly is all buffoonery and coonery.

Majority of the men on these shows are cornballs and wannabe’s or washed up artistes trying to hold on to a career that has been long gone, but they end up making themselves look really ridiculous and they’re doing nothing but providing more of a stigma for the hardworking and decent black men everywhere. When you look at shows like Basketball wives or Love and Hiphop whatever city they’re invading now, how many Causcian male and female do you see on those shows? All you are people of color or “Minorities” as people love to call us.

MY POINT IS REALITY SHOWS ARE DOING NOTHING BUT DAMAGE TO THE AFRICAN AMERICAN CULTURE THAT IS STRUGGLING ON A DAILY BASIS TO GAIN SOME POSITIVE LIGHT
