I felt a bit discontent this week after seeing All in the Family and Good Times– the racist comments are unsettling even when knowing these shows are from over 40 years ago. The days after this, though when we watched a few shows where feminism is strongly brewing, I felt a bit more like the ’70s included at least some progress. Racial equality was still not the norm, but genders were finally becoming a bit more equalized (at least more than the past). I enjoyed most all of the shows this week except for one, All in the Family. While pondering all of these topics I decided I disliked it so much because it combined the two issues- gender equality and racial equality. Archie Bunker gives us neither. He talks down to his wife in front of her children and guests in their home and he is completely oblivious to his racism.
