We don’t see a whole lotta Black faces on network TV these days, and we don’t see none what have an all Black or nearly all Black cast. That there network, CW, I think what it is called, had the shows called “The Game,” and “Everybody Loves Christ,” and a long time ago, or what seems a long time “Girlfriends.”
Well, now, guess what. They canceling “The Game” and “Everybody Loves Christ.” some folks mounted a campaign to try to change the minds of them suits at CW. Common sense shoulda told them they was spittin in the wind. Hell, the TV networks looks to advertisement for dollars, and they don’t think we Black viewers got too many dollars.
You see what I’m gettin at. Them TV networks want young, White folks what got dollars to spend on what young White folks spend on, whatever that is.
Just you take a look at network TV and you’ll see some minor characters in some shows but you don’t see no show what have Black leading characters. Sure we on cable in shows like what Tyler Perry make, but man, we are scarce on cable too, for that matter.
Dollars, my friends, drive the television suits just like they drive every big business, and as far as they concerned, we Black folks don’t have the dollars. They don’t use no common sense neither. I wonder how many of them networks and cable suits done research the economy situation of black folks. No, it aint as bad as the newspapers make it out to be.
I say don’t waste your time writing to them TV suits cause they aint gonna answer.
