strong black woman
First, I am not a woman nor am I a black woman, let alone a strong black woman. For me, I have see the later my entire life. The type of women who would go and pull their man by his ears from a crap game and drag him to church. The kind that would hold down two or more jobs as well as be a homemaker to her family and kids. The kind that won’t take no shit from anyone and who still had enough time to make certain her family and kids had food on their plate. The kind that would be cursing out her son (me) but at the same time putting food on my plate.
But I have just come to findout that this White female by the name of Kathy Griffin is holding a television comedy show called STRONG BLACK WOMAN. The show is being released and shown on the Bravo television station.
The show, which is supposed to air on May 9 2006, was produced by Emmy-winning Production Partners Inc who also produced HBO's "Chris Rock: Bigger & Blacker" and "Curb your Enthusiasm."
I may be making too much about this but I was extremely offended when I saw her and the title. Our women have it hard enough for another person from a alternate species to make money off of what they are not. I say we take the time to drop an email at the Bravo channel, which is part of the NBC Universal Cable Entertainment division, an email and let the know what we think. My rant is over for now.
