    You're talking about Fallon, Culhane and Liam. It looks like they are moving towards a relationship with Fallon and Culhane. Remember she also had a fling with Jeff as well. But at least it isn't being written like Liam is her white knight or he is the guy she needs to be with in this love triangle and at least the black guy isn't getting cucked. In fact neither black guy on the show is getting cucked. lol. But fans just like with Life Sentence are sick of the love triangle, those who like it are either single or cheating or thinking about cheating on their significant other right now. lol.

    Remember we are always going to have a few bumps in the road as long as white guys and really anyone that isn't in a IR relationship is writing or directing a show or movie that has interracial couples especially one that is between bm and ww. One of the biggest problems is that we still need better representation at the helm of these shows and movies. Unfortunately those who aren't in or have experienced a bm/ww interracial relationship only know of the stereotypes. They don't think you can get an actual loving relationship out of a black man and a white woman.

    This drama seems so manufactured. Let me know when I should tune in.

    It was promising for the first 3 episodes. Has a strong premise, funny and still is kind of funny, but instead of sticking to the formula and staying original they had to do what CW shows do and what Hollywood loves to do and that is throw those dreaded love triangles in there, especially with bm/ww relationships. And really didn't try anything after that because obviously they were focused on making this marriage troubled and involve outsiders. Needed to take a clue from the relationships on This Is Us.

    Showrunners really need to pay attention to these "shipping" videos on youtube and realize more people love couples not love triangles. lol.

    Okay, I just recalled another one an hour ago. The "Dear White People" series based upon the movie. They carried over the IR love story involving the militant black female lead and a white male student.

    Lol, but if a show had a militant black, pro black guy with a white woman it would either receive backlash from black women or made to be a joke of a relationship.

    I can't remember, but didn't either the movie or the television show throw shade at interracial couple involving a black man and a white woman?

    Yes, the film threw shade on the black guy-white gal romance. It wasn't real, the black guy had lost his way. Meanwhile not only was the militant black girl/white guy romance portrayed far more positively, it turned out that the black girl was the product of another healthy interracial relationship between her black mom and white daddy. Notice a pattern? This is predictable considering the writer/director was a gay black man, but if I'm being honest straight black male filmmakers would probably do the same shit.

    Good point. Nothing positive can include a black male

    We have names for those brothas. lol. That is why I believe we also need better representation at the head of these shows and films. So many people treat black men and white men together like it's wrong and even black men with other non-black women is wrong, but EVERY OTHER relationship on the planet including gay relationships is okay. Shit like this is why I'm pulling for the IR shows and movies we do have that have positive portrayals to do well with the exception of Cloak and Dagger that show seems to even have BGN support and MARVEL doesn't need help in how they promote their shit obviously. The more positive push can destroy these stereotypes that the racist, bedwenches, moist brothas, ect. keep trying to make real about us.

    Currently watching the season premiere of the 7th season/final season of "New Girl" that aired last week. They did a 3-year time jump from last season to this new season. Winston & Aly are married now & expecting their 1st child.

    [​IMG] @darkcurry @The Dark King @JamalSpunky Y'all see the episode of "Atlanta" that aired last week (Season 2, Episode 7) ?! I'm watching it right now. They taking shots at BW who obsess over BM celebrities who are involved with non-BW. I can only wonder what the reaction to the episode is online was because it feels like Donald Glover is taking direct shots at BW online who bashed him when news came out a year & a half ago about Donald Glover having his 1st kid with his white GF.


    EDIT:

    Bruh, they really had this darkskin chick (who was the least attractive of this group of Van's friends that went to this house party) stare at, stalk, & rant at this white chick just because she was the GF of some black male celeb. I can see a bunch thinkpieces being written by black feminists, darkskin activists, & etc. because of these scenes.

    Shots fired! Donald Glover for the win. lol. I have to catch up I missed both 6 and 7 episode due to work and being tired. lol.
    Something tells me for Donald Glove to go there he is more WOKE than they thought he was. Some of those brothas like us are on to the bullshit.

    I'm pretty sure you can find them on twitter under the #AtlantaFX hashtag especially if you type in the character's involved names next to the hashtag in the search bar on twitter.

    I was actually missed at the episode because I thought they let the black chick off the hook.

    I'll share more thoughts later.

    I had the "Scandal" series finale on in the background a few hours ago. It looked like Mellie & Marcus finally got together in Finale.

    I actually can't understand she could make herself do this. It just comes up as needy behavior.
