Why I watch Empire

a friend posted this on Facebook and I felt it was worth sharing.

at the end of the day white television employs few blacks if any so if it’s helping my people make money, that’s support for us too. and as far as disdain for cookie because she perpetuates stereotypes, I know a couple of cookies in my hood and I like seeing that. it’s inside jokes that I get. I hate that black people have to walk on eggshells and protect our actions in the media because people perceive it on a broader scale. they will say we are all cookie. but im tired of proving im educated because frankly, I have a little ratchet in me too and it says nothing about my intelligence or manners. the two coexist.
