To ABC: Where Are the Black People on Desperate Housewives?

Desperate Housewives

Where Are the Black People?

I like Desperate Housewives. I’ve been watching the shows for years. During those years, there was only one Black family on Wisteria Lane. After they were written out after the first season, there hasn’t been any. Disappointing.

I emailed ABC either last year or year before last about the absence of African Americans. I forgot the response. All I know is: there were no Black people then, and there aren’t any now.

Like I stated early, I really do like Desperate Housewives. Before I draw my own conclusions, I have to ask ABC one more time: Where are the Black people on Desperate Housewives?

A response would be greatly appreciated.

    Why does all TV drama’s have to have a Black family in it. Can you not watch a movie/drama for what it is, a good movie/drama, rather than just looking at color. PS – There are plenty of Black Drama’s and TV prog’s with black characters in.

      It would be nice to be able to watch TV without looking at color, but unfortunately, we live in America and that is not the case. And, all dramas don’t have Black families in them. In fact, without being a media expert, I am willing to bet that there are fewer Black people on regular TV stations in this millennium than there were at the end of the last one.

      @ Imran There are not enough black dramas….except for goofy ones. It would have been nice to see a few more black characters in the show…it’s 2011 for God’s sake!
