Black Sitcoms Will Never Be the Same. I ran through Jet Magazine’s Archives and saw that almost every other issue in the 90’s had a black sitcom family on the cover. If only we could get shows like these back. Here were my favorites growing up..

Never again will black sitcoms pale in comparison to these =/

What kills me is that all of these shows were successful. Multi-year runs with plenty of ad revenue, so you can’t claim audiences won’t watch shows featuring black people. But somehow none of these successful shows, or miniseries like Women of Brewster Place, or high grossing movies with black leads matter in Hollywood. The excuse is always that they’re a niche product/a fluke/whatever other dumbass excuse they can dream up to avoid engaging with reality.
