"Ok you UNDERSTAND the possible attack.
Now what's our COUNTER-ATTACK??
If we must stop SUPPORTING the image we do NOT want to be portrayed as.
If we did this at least like times in the past someone's ignorance would be CLEAR because there would be NO REAL PROOF.
Now we fall into stereotyp, WE CRAZY!"
I will concur that the media has gotten out of control and I will even concede that we *** support "outlandish" programming... however, I do hope that you are not implying that anyone who watches Reality TV is crazy or somehow unintelligent.
Like I said in my earlier post, I would enjoy more respectable reality programming such as 'The Bachelor', but we must realize that what one might consider outlandish/crazy is SUBJECTIVE to say the least. Yes, Flav's show, especially the last 2, were prime examples of cooning and if he were to package another rediculous season, I wouldn't watch... but that said, some of the elders in our society might consider comedy classics like Martin, The Fresh Prince or The Parkers as having too much "shucking and jiving".
Where do you draw the line? Who's right?
Just because a person's tastes differ from another's doesn't mean the differing palate is automatically wrong. It is what it is. Different.
But I will also agree that the "contemporary" stereotype for a tranny is becoming more and more synonymous with BLACK (see Diddy's new show, or The movie 'Holiday Heart' among others). It was not always this way but is becoming more and more prevalent. SMDH. The idiot box (television) is becoming more of a brainwashing tool every day.
