  1. I am highly offended. This is a racist show. Why is there is a African American show that is all about black people. No whites. Really. If I as a white women had a show that was all white people. The blacks would be protesting and rioting. I will never watch ABC again. It has become a racists station.

    • Oh Michelle please… ,there are plenty of all white shows and nothing wrong with celebrating African American culture so don’t be so uptight.

    • Plenty of show with nothing but whites so what’s the problem. If I don’t want to watch a particular program i turn the channel. But you would be missing a good time.

    • You are so ignorant… people like you are the same ones that complain about black history month….Even though we learn about our’s for eleven.And it’s the same with television shows…99% are white…so stop complaining!

    • HAHAAAHAAAHH!!!! Michelle, black folks have a sense of humor and I’ll bet you’re chuckling to yourself right now because you’re black and you have really got us goin …..gone Sista!!!
