taping a reality show. Please tell me that the whole suicide incident wasn't one of those fake reality show gimmicks to recruit a viewing audience.
I know that FlavorFlav's show was fake and so was RJay's reality show because most of those young ladies vying for their their heart winded up with their own televison show or were rewarded in some type of way. New York was given her own television series similar to FlavorFlav. Some of the other ladies appeared in Monique's television series. Has the old Hollywood casting couch been remodeled?
Why are reality shows geared to make blacks look trashy? Are these the new blaxploitation flicks that have replaced those old school ones like "Superfly" and "The Mack" or better yet those "Blackface" vaudeville acts? Projecting black male images of players and black females as promiscuous seems to be in again. They've even took it to a new level when they had the "Bobby Brown" reality shows to project blacks as crack addicts. And don't forget Frankie the ex-crack cocaine addict mother who liked younger men in the Keyshia Coles' reality show. Even in their so-called upper black class families, they're projecting some type of stereotypical image of blacks.
Does anyone in Hollywood believe that black folks lead normal, decent, law abiding lives like all other human beings? Or are they just insistent on painting blacks in a tiny box as those "undesirables" of America? Has the black community in reality really ran out of any good images to show the world?
