Can people please stop going on about how black female characters need to stay single so that they can be strong and independent and your beacon of feminism? Stop. Seriously stop that shit. A black woman on the show being the only one to not be in a romantic relationship is not progressive. It’s not empowering. It is not empowering to turn on a tv show and see that character constantly be in the background when everyone else falls in love. Not when you’re constantly having studies coming out saying that black women are the least attractive, least desirable, and least likely to be married among their counterparts. Saying you need to see someone be single and proclaiming that it hasto be the black female character is gross. Stop it. Stop it. Stop it!
