when an aaw has the decision making power to produce a show targeted towards aaw, her main themes is not black love, but irr with wp? also the alpha male, potus, is white. even though our current potus is black.
the only thing i have to say is the sooner this cancer is 'purged' the better. hopefull we won't have to wait much longer.

the show seems like it might be good too. hope her boyfriend is white
the boyfriend has to be white. If it was 2 black ppl nobody would be interested. And if Pope was played by a white actress it would have far gr8 ratings. I think ppl have some kind of idea that black ppl are unrelatable-amongst a long list of other things.
