When Hamilton voted for Jefferson
  • Hamilton: what can I say expect your welcome
  • Burr: shut up Hamilton
  • George Washington: saw that coming

Jax is confused and angry at the aesthetic choices and the commitment to it.

Yeah, I watched first season of Legends of Tomorrow and now those two are my favorite idiots. I’m sorry.

Why are so many great black TV shows missing from streaming services?
Streaming services make TV history look whiter than it really was, and deny us access to great black series.
By https://www.facebook.com/alyssa.rosenberg?fref=nf&pnref=story

“If shows featuring black people aren’t made available to everyone–not just black people–then how will a wider audience of people come into contact with black shows? If they were available as easily as [insert random show that people rarely watch or talk about but is streaming], we could get more than just black people watching these shows. We could expand the typical audience of these shows to include other races and the next generation. And in doing that, we could inspire writers and producers and networks to give more black written/black-led TV shows a shot (especially on network television).”

I’d take this a step further. Making television shows created by African Americans and starring black people harder to find also makes it harder to see the version of TV’s past where these shows are critical and commercial successes.
