When Scandal Haters and Fans Take It Too Damn Far

See on Scoop.itOUR COMMON GROUND Informed Truth and Resistance

I love the show Scandal. I have loved it from the time that I saw episode 1 of season 1 on its premier night on April 5, 2012 on ABC at 10:00pm. Yes. I watched it then. It’s not a bandwagon experience…

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

Liking the show does not mean that I “like” that “Huck” was tortured or that he tortures; it does not mean that I “like” when “Fitz” is being an asshole versus loving. It does not mean that I personally “liked” when “Sally” was being tyrant—I liked that it made the discussion that being a woman doesn’t mean you’re automatically a feminist surface. I enjoy the discussions that surface, assuming that they aren’t “let’s bash the one Black woman character, anything she does and any Black woman who likes the show because we hate that Black women have something…anything that they like” type of discussions. I reject the aforementioned because people who do this are ignorant, racist/sexist, annoying, and transparent.
