Mona Scott-Young Gracefully Responds To Our LHHA Concerns, “Change The Damn Channel”.
You know what they say..”Shoot the messenger”. But more simply, if you don’t like the show…DON’T WATCH IT! Freedom of choice!! I just … the folks talking shit but glued to the screen. Change the damn channel!! LOL!
Well isn’t that cute? Mona Scott-Young recently responded to the backlash and negative reviews to the debut of her second installment of Love and Hip Hop telling people if they don’t like what they are seeing then just “change the damn channel”. Doesn’t this sound familiar?
Obviously, the executive producer is a tad bit upset and possibly bitter at the fact that so many Black viewers have shunned her latest endeavor. However, I think what Ms. Mona has failed to realize and could possibly be overlooking is that Black women actually want to support her; however we are simply demanding that we get something of quality to actually support and be able to proudly stand by and promote as a community.
Executive producers like Mona Scott-Young and Shaunie O’Neal have navigated and conquered a sector of the business that was not previously opened to Black women. Much like Shonda Rhimes, they have an opportunity to highlight, honor and empower Black women yet instead they choose to play into the stereotypes that already plague our community. The behavior on these shows confirm [to the non-Black viewing individual] that we are all bitter, angry, hostile, arrogant, trifling, home wrecking, loose lipped, trashy, desperate women with no self-control, common sense or respect for ourselves or others.
We are simply tired of flipping through the channels and seeing ourselves [or people who are suppose to be representatives of the average Black women in America] being degraded, played downed or made to look like complete fools in the eyes of our peers. While it may be entertaining to some [mostly childish women and young teens] it is embarrassing for the average Black American woman because let’s be real, there are more Black women in America who live nothing like these women, act nothing like these women and do not associate with the foolishness that these women do. We are not the minority.
All we are asking for is a little balance and positively to go along with the foolishness, because let’s face it…we all love to watch the drama as long as it doesn’t involve us.
