Crucial portrayal of the black family
In this episode of Every Body Hates Chris we are able to observe two family dynamics. When Rochelle’s father unexpectedly dies from a heart attack in the middle of dinner, the family is left to deal with other family members, particularly Rochelle’s mother, Maxine in the time leading up to the funeral. Rochelle is conspicuously impacted by her mother’s presence during her stay. Her mother’s power renders her voiceless and turns her into a sort of “pushover” in contrast to her usual ‘authoritative’ role. Maxine takes over this role in this episode, as she criticizes and orders Rochelle around. Their mother/daughter relationship serves more as a rather typical sitcom/romantic comedy theme (the film Monster-in Law comes to mind, particularly when Jane Fonda’s character’s mother is presented as having the same tyrannical qualities as her daughter), rather than being informed by the black identity. Everybody Hates Chris is iconic for its ability to portray the black family as a two-parent household while not being shown as wealthy or living in poverty, but rather being somewhere in the middle between of the two. It also shows the black father as not only being present, but imparting real life lessons, such as the realities of hard work. Although Rochelle is portrayed as being an ultimately loving mother and wife, the show still manages to make the same mistakes that previous black family centered t.v shows have made (Beaulah), which is to present the male figure as inferior to the female. I say that not to argue that the roles should be reversed (complete equality should be the status quo), but rather to say that it perpetuates age old stereotypes about the masculinity of black men. While Rochelle’s dominance falls silent in this episode, her mother’s presence indicates that the role had been passed down. In the last scene Maxine asks Rochelle if her husband mentions her in his last words, and Rochelle honestly answers no. This perhaps serves as warning to Rochelle toward the treatment of her own husband.

best show ever!
Season one episode seventeen of Everybody Hates Chris was an eye-opening episode in terms of analyzing the black family dynamic. Growing up in Brooklyn, in the 1980s, Chris was exposed to a strict family dynamic with parents who grew up during the civil rights movement. Rochelle, Tichina Arnold and Chris’s mother in the series, represented a black woman who was very observant of her kid’s actions and (in a very overexaggerated way) would always put them in check if they were doing any common thing that any child would do (e.g. like opening the refrigerator for one second too long). These bold actions are calling a statement to how cautious and thrifty black parents had to be living in an underprivileged community, living paycheck to paycheck, while at the same time trying to protect their kids and expose them to a strong family foundation.
Chris Rock, as a director who is expressing his experiences growing up in a lower-class black neighborhood, created this humorous interpretation of his real-life family while drawing attention to real life social issues in the black community. This episode showed the black family dynamic, despite their arguments and their conservativeness, having love for each other and making time for family moments. Everybody Hates Chris provides television with a positive representation of a black family, despite the tough times that they go through, Chris has two loving parents who he can go to and feel love from. The way that Rochelle acted as a strong black woman who was not broken by the death of her father, shifting her strict personality to being super cool, calm, and collected, represents how black people have had to pretend to keep it together throughout history (especially in times of tragedy). The black community has faced so much tragedy that we have had to adapt to circumstances and provide hope for the entire family.

One of the Top Father's on Television!
As I was watching "Everybody Hates Chris", I realized that, TERRY CREWS, who is perfectly cast as JULIUS, Chris Rock's Father! He is one of the TOP TV DADS of the last 60 years! His advice to his children is a breath of long overdue advice, on work ethics, honesty in his interactions with his family, neighbors and community of characters. He shows the necessity of Coupons Currency, Robutussan Remedy, and Loving his children like they were family!
I see him going down in TV History with such Classic TV Dads as:
(WARD CLEAVER from "LEAVE IT TO BEAVER"), (HOWARD CUNNINGHAM from "HAPPY DAYS"), & (STEVE DOUGLAS from "MY THREE SONS"). A terrific series for the family.
