is there a reason there used to be a ton of sitcoms with black families on television and then like after like 2005ish that just kind of stopped? like we had the cosby show, fresh prince of bel-air, family matters, sister sister, my wife and kids, everybody hates chris, that’s so raven, etc
Black love for me is such an old school feeling. To me, black love is simply every aspect of the 90’s. From Candy Coated Raindrops to Movin with my auntie and uncle in Bel Air, black love brings such a warm feeling to my heart. Black love is happiness, freedom, strength, beauty and last but not least, power. Black love doesn’t just exist between a man and woman, black love is simply unity within. black love sticks together. for me, black love is such a sure thing

Lasha met Cosby in Las Vegas in 1986. The 17-year-old high-school student worked at the Hilton Las Vegas but wanted to pursue a modeling career, so her stepmother sent a letter and a photo of Lasha to the comedian. Cosby called Lasha’s family, inviting her and her grandmother to his show, also at the Hilton. Cosby asked Lasha up to his suite, where he promised to introduce her to an agent from the Ford Modeling Agency. In his room, Cosby handed Lasha a blue pill — he said it was an antihistamine for her cold — and a double shot of Amaretto. Cosby asked her to put on a hotel robe and wet her hair to prepare for the modeling agent’s arrival. Lasha says someone came to the room and snapped a few photos, but quickly left. Alone again with Cosby, Lasha says the comedian led her to the bedroom and gave her another shot of Amaretto. She lay down, and then he climbed in bed beside her. She remembers him humping her leg, grunting. Then she blacked out. She woke up more than 13 hours later. Cosby stood above her and clapped his hands, shouting, “Daddy says wake up.” He handed her $1,500 and told her to buy something nice for herself and for her grandmother. She came forward in December 2014. “I used to fear for my life because of the type of influence that he had. And I would cry all the time, all the time. After that, I didn’t know who to trust and who not to trust. I have nightmares. I wouldn’t let my children watch The Cosby Show because I would cry.”
