As I was reading the excerpt on the Black sitcoms I couldn’t help but notice that yes there have been many different sitcoms to depict the black lives that are lived everyday, but none of them are giving an accurate representation of what it means to be a black man or women in today’s society. Instead of actually writing about the true happenings of blacks in society they make assumptions and then do not appeal to the black masses. For example, yes Black-ish, is a very relevant show that talks about hard topics that many people are afraid to say in person. Unfortunately, the situation of the black family, Rainbow being a doctor and Dre being one of the leading men in his company can relate to some but not all. The concept of the black family should not focus on solely one aspect of what the black family should be but multiple examples. This is so that we as a society can get past the stereotyping and know the truth of black sitcoms.
