Why so Ghetto????

First there was Oprah, then Tyra, now Wendy Williams and the newest addition is the Monique Show. Now I definitely support my sisters out there trying to do their thing, but how many of the same shows do we need? Oprah of course is in a class by herself and Tyra, not much to say about her show; but, Wendy Williams and the Monique Show seem to be identical to me, almost repetitive. Monique may not center her show around gossip but at the end of the day both shows are the same. The only difference between Monique's and Wendy's show is that Monique screams the ENTIRE time. She yells at the top of her lungs in excitement over one thing or another, I just don't get it.

Lately, it seems as though "keeping it real" has been misconstrued to mean "be ghetto as hell." Why must we straighten our wigs on TV, and scream to the top of our lungs and then justify the behavior as "keeping it real." The last time I watched the Monique show she was barefoot with a foot brace on. Are you kidding me. who hosts a show barefoot?

I don't know folks, I'm definitely not trying to be judgmental but sometimes I really get tired of black people living up to the title of ghetto.

Let me know your thoughts.

  1. I totally agree! I've never understood why acting ghetto equals keeping in real. I haven't seen Monique's show, but if its anything like Wendy's or Tyra's I'm sure I'm not missing anything special.


Would love to hear your comment**
