THE STATE OF AFRICAN AMERICAN FAMILY DRAMA’S ON TV AND FILM

Do you know how many black family drama’s we have on network television (1)ONE AND THAT’S EMPIRE EVEN THOUGH IT’S CATEGORIZED AS MUSIC DRAMA BUT DON’T YOU WANT TO SEE MORE???
Do you know how many black family drama’s we have on cable television`(0)ZERO (POWER IS CONSIDERED A CRIME DRAMA, BUT WILL TAKE IT
Do you know how many black family drama’s we have in the movies (0) ZERO

MY POINT IS THIS ABC, NBC CBS NO ALL BLACK CAST EXCEPT (BLACKISH) WHICH IS A COMEDY. FOX HAS EMPIRE AND THAT’S IT. IS THAT OKAY WITH YA'[LL? TBS, TNT, USA, FX, LIFETIME, OXYGEN, AMC WE, AME, ABC FAMILY, HALLMARK, HBO STARZ,CINEMAX, ENCORE MOVIE CHANNEL I MEAN YOU GET THE POINT. ALL OF THESE CHANNELS, ALL OF THESE TIME SLOTS AND BESIDES REALTY TV WHERE IS OUR REPRESENTATION???
I KNOW WHAT YOUR THINKING OH HE’S JUST TRYING TO ADVANCE HIS CAUSE BUT MY FELLOW AUTHOR Dawn Monique Edmond HAS A STORY THAT WOULD MAKE A HELLUVA MADE FOR TV MOVIE, ANOTHER FELLOW AUTHOR Trisha Trisha IS WRITING INTERESTING STORIES THAT DEPICT US IN VARIOUS LIGHTS, Neet Thomas WilsonWRITES AND THAT’S JUST NAMING A FEW WE HAVE SOME VERY TALENTED WRITERS OUT HERE WITH STORIES THAT DEPICT US IN A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT ROLES. MY STORY DEPICTS US AS A FAMILY THAT’S WEALTHY, LIVING IN GORGEOUS HOMES, DRIVING NICE CARS, TWO PARENT HOUSEHOLDS, BUSINESS OWNERS, HIGH LEVEL EXECUTIVES, EDUCATED PARENTS EDUCATED CHILDREN WHO ARE AS DYSFUNCTIONAL AS THE DAY IS LONG. THE MARVELOUS UNIQUE THING ABOUT US AFRICAN AMERICANS IS THAT WE HAVE SO, SO MANY LAYERS UNFORTUNATELY HOLLYWOOD ONLY SEEMS TO FOCUS ON A FEW. AREN’T YOU TIRED OF THAT, AREN’T YOU TIRED OF REALTY RATCHINESS? YOU GUYS SEEM TO LOVE SCANDAL AND EMPIRE WELL “A FAMILY IN CRISIS, NESSA, SECRETS, THE TRUTH, REDEMPTION AND REVENGE WILL LEAVE YOU JUST LIKE PAPA POPE LEFT U AND LIKE COOKIE LEFT YOU. YOU THINK I’M BLOWING SMOKE READ THE BOOK OR WAIT FOR IT TO HIT THE SCREEN BECAUSE IT WILL BE ON TELEVISION, CABLE THE BIG SCREEN, YOUR’E THE ONE ONE WHO CAN MAKE THE NETWORK EXEC STAND UP AND SAY “I GOTTA HAVE THIS” IF NOT FOR ME DO IT FOR OTHERS THAT ARE WAITING FOR THEIR CHANCE
