Okay, this has been bothering me. There are two new shows coming out that feature actual women of color as the central characters and they are MAIDS and MISTRESSES!!!

WOW! A show about Latinas who are maids. REAL original.

WOW! A show that depicts women of color as harlots! GREAT.

I mean, we plead for more diversity on television and when we get it the material gives into stereotypes rather than breaks them.  

Shame on ABC and Shame on Lifetime

This is NOT how women, especially women of color, want or should be portrayed in the media.
