Black Women & Reality TV

Being that The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been such a success you would think that the women of the show would carry themselves with respect. As a fan of the franchise its disappointing to see a black woman degrade herself for the entertainment of others. I get it that someone may tick you off with what they have to say, but the best way to ever get someone back is to live you own damn life. Keep doing exactly what you’re doing because clearly they’re watching you for a reason. Your life is forever your message and if someone has to judge you then so be it. Take a look at the Kardashians although they may not be the best example, but when was the last time you saw them throw fist and a slap at one another?


Why is it that once black women step in front of the camera we’re quick to see them throw low blows with words and a slap to follow? Being in my 20’s even I know that’s not cool and as you get older you’re not sent to the principal’s office you’re getting an assault charge. Yes, I understand it’s entertaining, but does that make it right? Arguing is cool, but keep your hands to yourself because at the end of the day the words that were said will never go away.  Now that we live in such a digital age it really isn’t going to disappear. Remember if it was captured it’s forever living.
