I cannot watch any more drug or slave shows about us any more. I want to be up lifted on the positive lives that are rarely shown.

@9:37 I hear you, but that won't happened until the Jesus returns and destroys the removes the establishment of the eye. Remember the God has his scriptures and the Devil has his TV scripts **understand the play on words"

@9:37 that is exactly why I will not watch it. I want to support black actors and actresses but if all the networks want to produce and show primarily POC in a negative light, I'll pass. I'm sick of the trash that is being shoved down our throats all in the name of entertainment. I have never watched or supported any of the slave movies either. We don't need to see movies about what our ancestors went through...that trauma runs through our veins. Make some movies about the Black Inventors whose ideas were stolen by the white people and passed off as their own. The constant negative images is all done by design and we can counteract that by not supporting their projects. Bill Cosby was more than likely putting those pills in a few of those drinks, but what they will never take away from him is the image he put out to black people via the Cosby Show. Sidebar....I didn't like Good Times either. George Jefferson was more my speed! :)

@9:37 & @9:48

You told no lies. I'm sick of it. And what saddens me is that all the Black shows about drug dealing, slavery, stripping, pimping and hoes, loud angry immature black women and messy obnoxious black gay men, and being thugs in the rap game are the highest rated.

We can complain about white people watching these but the truth is most black people support stereotypes too. Black people think positivity or multidimensional characters in unique situations (like Lovecraft Country) is too boring, weird, or unrelatable. Most black people would choose to watch P-Valley and Power over Lovecraft Country and Greenleaf.

The only exceptions are Black Lightning but even that show doesn't get support like Power or Real Hoe-wives of Atlanta.

Good! I love this show!! Deaundre Bonds & Melvin Gregg deserve awards for their performances. Very talented men. On another note, there are so many shows without drugs or slavery and some of you half ass watch them or fail to watch them at all. So miss me with the bullshit! Don't like this show, so be it but for the rest of us, we'll keep enjoying it because it is very good.

@11:11 Obviously your dumbass just admitted to watching this show and not watching the others. So obviously you're not watching those shows either.

I swear, Black America stay losing. This is why Black foreigners continue to come to the U.S. and kick our asses in education and business, and maintain strong communities! Drug, thugs, gangbanging, being a thot in the ghetto, poverty, and schoolgirl drama, and praising White Jesus and being a pick-me for bum niggas is popular with most Black Americans because you all can relate to that low-vibrating shit!

The only positive Black entertainment Black people like are Tyler Perry coon productions, White/Jew approved "Blackish", or White/Jew approved "Black Panther". We never support the positive or unique productions made and funded by Black people. Then even worse Black people continue to cry over getting White awards for these shows and movies, but don't give a fuck about the Black awards.

I grew up in one of the neighborhoods featured (the bottoms/Inglewood) in the 70/80s and though I'd wish we could have gotten the hell out back then, I can say it wasn't all bad back then. I'd be lying if I were to say Snowfall doesn't strike a nerve but the soundtrack and fashions take me back. A lot of people I knew back then weren't all bangers or thugs and some of us went on to earn college degrees.

While the show is a form of escapism for me, it also reminds me of how things fell apart in the 15 years I lived there. Crack, coke, and the element it brought did a 180 on many black working/middle class areas. Now, if any one wants to buy a house they head to the IE or extreme outskirts of l.a. for affordability and safety. I know there are exceptions but it seems like when a person comes up, out of the area they go...my mom included.

Ghetto people do Ghetto things. Sorry you cant level up to higher standards. No one said these actors cant act. They are limited in Oscar worthy acting parts.

Snowfall is history retold in a format mass people can understand, digest and relate too. How the fuck you're gonna not watch how the US government pumped crack into our urban cities and blamed it on "degenerate crack dealers"? We are still living in a country hell bent on killing us....we better watch it. Teach our kids what real enemies look like. Ignoring it won't change the fact that if you live in the US, you leave your house everyday with a target on your back.
