When did it become so cool to be black and ignorant? Is this the after effect of "Keepin' It Real"? I thought we had reached our bottom, as a people, when I saw Flavor Of Love I & II. Lucky for us, the good folks at MTV hopped right on the Buffoonery bandwagon. The new show is "Adventures In Holly-Hood". No, I didn't just make that up. It's wrong on so many levels. It paints a picture of black folks that sheltered, naive, white folks would welcome into their psyche and not feel the least bit racist, judgmental, or stereotypical. I don't like to knock anyone's hustle, but I am sure that Martin & Malcolm are somewhere looking down and thinking, "Is this where the struggle has lead my people?" Living in a primarily white population, shows like this just make the water cooler/ Lunchroom/ Teacher's Lounge a place of dread. It's just the ammunition that the "behind-closed-doors" racist needs to bring it out to the forefront. I hope this trend dies soon. If it doesn't; please rent Spike Lee's movie, "Bamboozled" to see how this is all gonna end. Damn, I miss the Huxtables! That's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?
