    I would do some dirty and probably illegal things to this man.

    Based on trends for major network dramas (besides Empire), he probably won’t have an African American wife. The major networks lack portrayals of black marriages in dramas; it’s always a mixed couple like in HTGAWM & Extant (where Halle’s black husband died before the pilot, we only see flasbacks to him and now she has a white husband; similarly Taye Diggs’ black wife dies in the first few episodes of Murder in the First, a cable program) or the shows feature single black stars (like Scandal). I know it’s just an effort to attract a diverse audience but they could at least throw in black couples as costars to make it somewhat reflective of reality. Black people do still marry each other for goodness sakes and newsflash–some of those marriages actually last. I don’t watch a lot of TV but this assessment is just based on my limited observations so I could be off base.

      Well put Anne.

      Blackish is a perfect example that refutes what you said. While there are not a lot of black couples on TV, there are some. Another would be the FBI boss in the recently cancelled The Mentalist. You’re wrong.

        Blackish is a comedy, I specifically said dramas. Anyway, I guess I’m glad you were at least able to come up with one cancelled exception. There may be one or two exceptions but it doesn’t change the fact that black love is insufficiently portrayed on TV, particularly in series dramas on major networks, as it’s not a realistic reflection of society in general. The trend to portray otherwise in dramas on major networks is much more apparent based on my observations.

    Good for him.

    He has been getting steady work since he played the vilain and dropped them poor chirrren in “For Colored Girls”.

    I just wish he would loosen up a bit, he takes himself too d*mn seriously on set and on talk shows. That’s kind of boring.
