Why I hate Scandal (and other Negro Bed Wenches)


20130523-161713.jpg

With many entertainers us as fans always have that one that we feel a special connection to, whether it be an appreciation for their skills, a physical attraction/ crush, or simply a love for who they are as a person.

For me I feel all three of these for the actress, Ms. Kerry Washington.

Without going into unneccesary detail, Kerry Washington, to me is damn near perfect and the ultimate wife(y) type.

She has had some great acting roles and over the years has been involved in a multitude of humanitarian efforts that impress and intrigue me.

That’s why it’s hard…no not really hard…unbelievable to say this but…I hate her show, Scandal.

20130523-161848.jpg

I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. There I said it. Now I know this is a very popular show and for good reason.

It is well written, has good actors, and includes thought provoking plots but in all honestly the biggest part of the show that America likes is…

This Black chick is the most powerful man in the free world & UNENO it.

Simply put, Olivia Pope is the president’s whore and that completely turns me off from liking the show.

Now is it because I am deeply infatuated with Kerry Washington? No because I ha
ve learned to minimize my thirst to realistic levels. Am I against interracial relationships? No I can’t really say that I am.

Then why do I hate Scandal?

I think the choice to possibly ignore historical significance of this taboo power dynamic has rubbed me the wrong way.

What many don’t know or haven’t researched is that this plot of Scandal is very similar to real history.

Our nations 3rd president, Thomas Jefferson, had slaves and in fact he had a slave mistress. Her name was Sally Hemings. By all accounts she was beautiful, of mixed descent, and spoke English & French but the bottom line is she was a slave who had four kids by this dude.

20130523-161252.jpg
Now I don’t how TJ gamed Sally up into letting him but when you’re a slave on the Presidents plantation I don’t think there would be too much discussion in the matter.

America loves seeing Black women coddled by/saved by/loved by/ and *&%^$#@Eed by White men. Especially white men with power.

It’s the reason Halle Berry won an Oscar for getting pounded by Billy Bob Thorton, why Ghetto Gaggers is still in business and why Scandal is such a hot TV show. sh*t it’s even why they asked Kevin Costner to speak at Whitney Houston’s funeral.

20130523-163428.jpg

What’s even funnier/slightly disturbing is Black womens recent infatuation with this character. Like Olivia Pope is some to admire. She’s a married man thats her boss. She’s no better that Sanaa Lathan in that piece of sh*t Tyler Perry movie.

All Im saying is I can’t get down with Ms.Pope bustin’ it wide open for the Commander In Chief when just 150 years ago she wouldn’t have had an option.

I don't watch the show, but my s.o and sis in law do religiously. When she explained the plot to me, I admit that the OP's explanation crossed my mind. Maybe that's one of the reasons why I passed on watching it with them a few years back.

I watched a bit of it with her last week. Wasn't feeling it. I won't go into the mini debate that me and her had after it went offLOL

You are PARANOID.
 
It's a TV show and if there was never a Black woman lead in a TV show ... you would be complaining that ... there are never any Black women leads in TV show, Duh!]
 
As far as this BACKWARD parellel of the character to SLAVERY? Ah who care?
 
You people have gotta stop 'reading into' everything .. as somehow some master ploit against Black women/people and try to find something positive in your lives instead of hee heee! Sittin around haten on White man.
 
How is this a PRODUCTIVE use of your energy?

I didn't read but most people like myself admire Olivia Pope because she's a boss and gets sh*t done. I'd hired her.

there have been like 80000000000 articles saying the same thing since scandal first started
 
i think scandal is too much like a soap opera. not to say that the author's point isnt valid but it would be cool to hear some diff reasons on why people dont like the show
