Y'all have to understand why representation matters, especially for people of color.
Imagine: most of your life you grow up, and you’re overrun by tv shows mostly consisting of people of color, except the few remote white people here and there. You wish to see someone who represents you, but you feel like you can’t relate to any of the few characters that look like you, because the person that they put in there is either hollow as fuck, or misinterpreted.
That’s how it is for us.
I grew up around white revolving shows and television most of my life. So to have a show I related most to, while giving me education behind the late 70s is important to me.
But everytime it never works out in our favor. So many shows with poc representation being cancelled. You keep saying make something that’s ours, how about you allow us to keep it?
