#WeekendCoffeeShare: Stop Complaining About What TV Shows Are Depicting of Your Race/Stereotypes
We all have seen friends, peers, and strangers complaining about how the media and TV shows are depicting specific races to be. Stop trying to deflect the truth at media and start pointing the blame at those you should be questioning. The actors and actresses taking those roles.
No one is pointing a gun at your favorite actors and actresses forcing them to take roles that depict a specific race negatively. If that is the case, then they should be calling the cops on the TV producers/channels ASAP!
Yes, it is beyond tiring to see how blacks, whites, muslims, teen mothers/fathers, and other races/stereotypes are being portrayed on TV now and days. I don't even have to watch every season of Scandal, Empire, and (insert every reality TV show that exists right now) to see how bad TV shows have become. I can simply go down my Twitter timeline and Facebook news feed to see 1 out of every 3 posts complaining to some degree about the one thing they think is wrong.
Society has become so misconstrued with being coddled. Every show that misconstrues a race/stereotype negatively (and falsely) is okay to watch... until it hits home.
Of course every professional in media have a job to do to pay the bills... that's understandable. However, to what low degree are they going to keep taking these roles and not receive any blame for perpetuating what they know is wrong just for a paycheck?
It is about time society wakes up and start questioning why are actors/actresses taking these TV show/movie roles instead of trying to find/create some type of controversy for their own personal gossip gain.
But that will never happen right? Controversy sales and you (and others) will simply continue to buy into it, view it, and/or support whatever show it is until you see yourself being depicted negatively.
