In yet another week of “you tried it, patriarchy,” the ministers discuss why the Nina Simone biopic is destined to fail and how Hollywood has shown us yet again that not even a reboot of Ghostbusters can let Black women be great.
We struggle with the prominence of Black British actors in Hollywood when Black American actors are still outchea struggling. As much as we want international Blacks to be great, we have to deal with the question, does nationality matter?
With some of our ColorTV staples taking a break this week we had extra side eyes to throw at some of our regulars. The only thing keeping us with HTGAWM is Viola Davis and her box braids…and Nate’s chest.
Willis and Dr. Wourde are convinced The Walking Dead is about to break their hearts and kill one of their faves, while KAMMs and Willis are sick of Jo’s shit on Grey’s.
Overall this episode is a hysterical journey from discussing the right thing to do in Black Hollywood to the final praise of comedies of color for only getting better with time.
