Not sure I liked the plotline of Scandal. Initially the character Olivia Pope and the president had a hot love affair going. Yes, it was hot and wrong, but the characters seemed to have real love for each other, but tonight that affair took a real left turn. The president who once professed his love for Pope now is treating her like a street whore. He grabbed her had sex with her and then said he was finished with her. Does this storyline make anyone uncomfortable? Share your thoughts.

Real black women do not act like the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Basketball Wives, or Hip Hop Hoochies. They actually are more than the one-dimensional cartoon characters that clutter the cable networks. Two shows with promise feature strong women who happen to be black. One is ABC’s Scandal and the other one is VH1 Styled by June featuring June Ambrose. Read the linked story for more information on two shows worth watching. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/04/23/scandal-and-styled-by-june-allison-samuels-s-prime-time-saviors.html
We have watched black women insult each other, one up each other and fight each other. Reality television is meant to be sensational and lately that is one of the few places you see black women, but tonight we have the opportunity to see a black professional woman leading a team. Kerry Washington plays Olivia Pope, former White House Communication Director. She is the head of a crisis management team and she knows everyone’s secrets and she knows how to turn crap into champagne. Tonight is the first episode and in order to assure there will be more we have got to watch this show.
