Ummmm

People actually spent their money on the Scandal season 3 DVD collection?

I did not and will not give up my hard earned coins on that mess. Season 3 was hot garbage.

How in the world is the NY times wrong for doing the same thing that woman does every Thursday night? She writes stereotypical roles for Black women(she turns once smart characters into mammies, whores and angry or hypocritical women who get abused and pretends nothing is wrong)…

Some are mad they introduced an article about SR calling her the angry Black woman. Well, as a Black woman, I see her writing as proof of that. Folks need to stop kissing up to a person who has proven she thinks little of her own kind.

I think their fault was saying “a black woman” … it would have seemed more legit and less ignorant to say “how to get away with being an angry woman”.

but whatever .. what she does on her shows like you said is a million times worse than what the NY times called her 

Yes and as long as that Black woman writes other Black women as whores and bitches for the world to see and then believe, she gets no sympathy from me.

What I find most interesting is that the author & editors found this description [angry black woman] to be the most accurate description of SR. I haven’t seen KW or Judy Smith given those attributes…I can’t be mad if they met and talked with her and came away with that understanding. I can’t be mad if they’ve been watching her shows and thought that was appropriate. She’s the one that has re-introduced every stereotype known to black females and pounded it into folks head week after week, month after month…

lynnandstuff
Exactly. Folks treat you how they see it. Kerry gets respect in the media and so does Judy Smith( the real Olivia Pope) whose career the show Scandal was based off on and whose idea it was originally. Funny how the bitter angry show runner who happens to be Black was finally called out and described correctly.

I’m not trying to be obtuse…but isn’t her twitter rant/response what folks would expect an ‘angry black woman’ to do? Did she not just prove that stereotype true? IJS

lynnandstuff
Yes and she’s too arrogant to see it.

^^^The bolded…

Nothing to add, perfect analysis. I’ll only say I’ve seen some have the goddamn NERVE to compare what is said about her to what is said about AARON SORKIN. Just go hide yourself and never come back and shame on you for doing that. Aaron Sorkin is a genius and a writer of some of the best television EVER to grace our screens. Shonda Rhimes is a sub par extremely overrated CHEAP SOAP OPERA writer whose career proves she can do NOTHING but that. AND THERE lies the difference, not in the skin color or gender. She does NOT have nearly as much talent as the actually talented showrunners and writers out there. Do people seriously think it’s a coincidence that NONE of the actually big and talented showrunners and screen writers EVER mention her? Not ever! Wake up and start calling things for what they are. She is NOT nearly as good as some like to depict her, and her ass was kissed by everyone for FAR too long, JUST in the name of PROFITS. Newsflash: profits DO NOT equal writing talent. The shows that turn in the most profits, in fact, are reality shows. SMFH.

The way SR treats EVERY single character on her shows, and PARTICULARLY women of color (dude, Bailey was a JOKE for most of the first season of Grey’s Anatomy…she was a CARICATURE) is disgraceful, and her being called angry black woman is NOTHING compared to the damage SHE perpetrates. Get outta here with this bullshit.

I have nothing to add.

is so right! We have been saying this FOR YEARS about Shonda but now since press wanna call a spade a spade, folks wanna get angry? I have ALWAYS said Shonda’s skin color and her opportunities have been a hindrance more than anything as for advancement to WOC in television. She is a concept away from being the female Tyler Perry. She had NEVER treated the WOC on her shows with respect. She however falls all over herself to write for their white counterparts. I applaud them for the article. FINALLY someone in the press who isn’t drinking the Shonda koolaid and has some level of discernment.

As per usual, my opinion of this is quite different - or perhaps in this case, more nuanced - than just about everything I’m reading on my dash. At the considerable risk of having people unfollow me, I have to say that I cannot dismiss how poorly written overall this article is in favor of the points it makes about Shonda Rhimes that I agree with. The tone of it overall, coupled with the disparaging comments made about Viola Davis (she’s not “classically beautiful”????), reduction of the role of Nicole Beharie on Sleepy Hollow, and overly simplistic view of Claire Huxtable (and this is just for starters) really suggest to me that Ms. Stanley is deserving of every bit of the derision she is getting from the press today. She is being pilloried, and rightfully so. The article is not well written, has little or no nuance, and truly manages to pay backhand compliments to actresses who are deserving of so much better. Buried in the midst of all this is some very valid criticism of Scandal and of Shonda. Ms. Stanley clearly doesn’t think much of the show, and probably doesn’t think much of Shonda either. Had she managed to write a legitimate critique of the show and of Shonda absent the insults and backhanded comments about other African American actresses, I might feel more strongly about supporting the points she has made about Scandal that I think are valid. As it now stands, I’m outraged at some of the things she has said about Viola and Nicole. She undermined the validity of the points she had to make about Scandal by doing a horrible job with everything else. She’s being dragged for it in the press, and rightfully so.

These are just my thoughts, respectfully shared…

I don’t disagree with you
iknowwhythesongbirdsings
on Viola part. Its the Shonda part that I completely agree with. The Scandal part too.

Okay so this my question. Given how extremely horrible and poorly written the article is - and how offensive the article is to the actresses mentioned…and the dragging she’s rightfully getting in the press…how many white women/men are now going to tune in to this show on Thu to now ‘prove’ that they don’t think what the author has said is true?

Football is on.

Nothing else to add.

Question: who’s playing this coming Thursday night in the NFL? I hope it’s a good game.

They almost kiss on the lips
*NOT MY GIF*

True LOVE!!

tis lovely that is all.

OP: appears they DID kiss on the lips (to me).

Can we also talk about how she clearly slips her left arm underneath his jacket to hug him, not over?

Yes. Let’s talk about it.


So she takes her arm, which was nestled between them, and slides it down and around and inside his jacket. A move that began after the first (lip) kiss. Which then allows them to press together in a complete, full-body hug. Breasts to chest, pelvis to pelvis, both arms wrapped around the other in a total you’re precious to me and I need you to know that embrace.

Two kisses, one on the lips, one not. And as far as the embrace, that’s how you hug the person you love and who is precious to you.

Clearly this was not meant for our eyes.  Lip then cheek kiss coupled with long warm embrace that lasted longer than black church.


I just love the look of completeness, contentedness and love on his face when his head is on her shoulders embracing her tightly.I am sure she had the same look even though we can see her face.Love as it were.

Who brought this back???? I had to save this gif. For reasons.
