I wasn't really big on the idea of the show especially because I didn't think that Kevin Hart was that funny.

But I do believe that he has one upped our currently named "god of cinema" Tyler Perry in one respect.

If you're aware of the consistent propaganda that paints black women as the typical Mammy, Sapphire, Jezebel, and ABW stereotypes then you would surely realize that Kevin Hart has maybe inadvertently done his best to credit black women as individuals outside of that imagery.

I find this to be genius.

For one, he doesn't include women as the main cast except for his agent. He attributes what we've seen as female characteristics as male ones, thus rejecting this idea of the black female cartoon. This is a way of equalizing and humanizing normal human behavior.

The other benefits is hiring people who wouldn't get work in standard Hollywood which is interesting because that includes Robin Thicke...a white man who is in a field that caters to blacks. The fact that he is married to a black woman helps because it shows that his life choice (or perhaps life identity) renders him victim to the same plight as someone who is black even thought he has a namesake in the industry. This in itself is proof that being black or connected to someone black is a "scar" and could negatively impact your life. Even though this is expressed in a comedic sense, it is truly telling.

Well the point of the show is to satirize the whole real housewives franchise. I don't think Kevin himself is setting out to portray black women in a more positive light but either way I've found it hilarious so far.

I do like that the one black female character is the lawyer and they've shown her as a professional who is about her business, which we don't usually see for black female characters.

i think your digging deeper than what it really is. 

I like Kevin and all, but i dont think he had any alternative intentions when he created the show, other than $$$$$. 

ps. the show really isnt that funny to me. 

pss. the very 1st episode had Kevin showing up at the birthday party with a half naked Bria Myles and some other chick on his arm. there was also the loud mouthed "baby sitter" who wasnt during her job at the bday party.

then in the last episode Keri Hilson was trynna holla at his assistant just because she thought he was pushing a Porsche. 

so outside of the lawyer, the other images of black women arent that positive, if we keepin it 100.

I haven't seen the show yet,... but I did see a clip. I thought this was actually supposed to be a reality show but that one clip (the one of Nelly's workout video) showed me that they're basically making fun of their female counterparts in the Real housewives of ATL/OC/NY etc. I want to watch more of this show

Kevin Hart isn't even that funny. Another Lil Duval if you ask me.

The funny thing is Patti, I noticed this too about Kevin Hart

but not about his show on BET b/c I've only seen part of 1 episode


But I noticed the unintentional genius of his comedies. Apart from his ABW trope, because unlike you, I do believe he paints black women and girls (like his daughter) with that;  however, I believe his comedies do a great deal of humanizing Black people (Black men, boys, families mainly) in a way that no comic has before (that i know of).

I think if you get caught up in the 'it's just entertainment' aspect of it, you'll miss that. I find this especially important because I feel people are the most open and vulnerable when they're happy and laughing. I don't think we give comics enough credit for how influential they are to the masses
