This is kind of off-topic, but this was one of the things I didn't really like about Empire.
For those of you who don't know, "Empire" is that show that Jussie Smollett starred in (that guy who staged a fake hate-crime against himself for media attention a couple of months ago). I watched some of the first season, and I'm pretty sure I'm the only white person who did.
Anyhow, the premise of the show is that the founder of this hip-hop media empire is dying, which means one of his three sons is gonna inherit his business. There's Hakeem, a spoiled douchebag who embodies every negative stereotype ever held about black people. There's Jamal (Jussie's character), who's objectively the most competent and deserving heir to the business, but has been disowned by the father for being openly gay. And then there's pic related.
Andre is the brother with the most business acumen, and the least interest in music. There's a lot of shit in the show about how he's sold out and forgotten his roots. Also about his wife. His evil, evil, white wife and their interracial marriage.
Seriously, the way their relationship is portrayed would make the hair of even the most moderately civil-rights-minded person stand on end. Or at least, it would if the story was written by a white person. As it stands, however, it's written by BLACK people who want the races to be separate, so I guess that makes it ok.
But anyhow, yeah. The prevalence of that attitude is honestly kind of depressing, in my opinion. Hope that didn't derail the thread too much. It might not be /co/ but I still think it's kind of relevant.
