“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
The other day I grabbed my remote and tuned in “Love And Hip-Hop/Atlanta” to see what is going on. And soon I saw beautiful African American sistas going at each other using the worse speech there is. Or I saw sistas cussing their men.
As a African American it bothers the hell out of me to see the ladies fighting on national or even worldwide TV. I do not know how others feel but I do not like it! You know MANY MANY white folks think the way these sistas act on these reality shows is the way they really act all the time. This is the truth. But I am here to say not all African American females act this way folks.
Sad to say millions of folks tune into these shows just to see black ladies fight and yell at each other. They are not tuning in to see a great love story on these reality shows!! No way.
I wonder how these ladies parents feel about seeing the children cussing out one another. Are they proud parents? I don’t think so. But here is a question. Is all the yelling and cussing between the African American ladies staged? Is it just a act? Some think it is. Sorry I think it is real. A lot a black ladies do use very bad speech. It is just a fact. The question is why? Why do a lot of black ladies or African American females use bad language? Where is it starting?
Do these females care that there children or other family members may be watching these reality programs? Heck do they even care readers? I don’t really know. I just do not understand. To keep it real it makes me real angry to see these sistas fighting week after week on TV. Does it really have to be this way?
Finally, how about some for real African American love stories on TV? Or more dramas that deal with people of color? Does it have to be “Love and Hip-Hop” or “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” etc? I want to see love stories on TV like for instance the movie back in the day “Love Jones” and more dramas. Readers in my honest opinion it is needed very badly. We do NOT need to see beautiful African American females tossing blows at each other and cussing each other out or cussing at the boyfriend. We do not it anymore!
