I don't how many of you have watched it yet on Netflix but if you haven't you should. Probably the best new show I've seen in years. I binge watched Season 1 in two days. Here is the trailer: The show is set in 1813 Britain and focuses on the romantic lives of the British noble families. However, in this version of Britain, its not just white people in high places. There are black people who are monarchs, dukes, duchesess, and all sorts of nobility. Marriages between black men and white women are not considered unusual. In fact the main love story in season one centers around a black man and a white woman. Race and racism are also never discussed or mentioned. Its as if the idea of white supremacy never existed. And yet there are some black folks (mostly black women) complaining. Here are two articles about their criticisms: Why Bridgerton’s depiction of race is so unsatisfying Bridgerton's Diverse Cast Is Great and All, but Season 2 Needs to Be More Color-Brave Apparently these black women don't like the idea of a world where black pain and trauma doesn't exist. They don't like the idea of a world with black monarchs and no mention of slavery or discrimination. These women want Shonda Rhimes to turn the show from an exhibition of black excellence to becoming a show where black people are being oppressed and discriminated against. What is it with some black folks and their constant need for every black show to be centered around black pain and trauma? Why can't they just appreciate a show which shows us how life used to be like before white supremacy? Maybe its just me but I prefer shows where we are kings and queens over being slaves.
