Same ol racial tropes + watch on mute
As mush as I love seeing beautiful, successful black woman on screen. It's a NO when it come to the same ol storytelling tropes. 1. The overweight, oversexualized, loud mouth dark skinned black woman. 2. The dark skinned queer women of color. 3. The brown paper bag "princesses"/sexual objects. 4. Professional women by day, SJW by night. 5. Overly aggressive black women who yell at whites in public. No, no and no!! This series is not about black womans success, it's a mockery of the black woman's social image all wrapped in stereotypical insults. Amazon dressed up this ghetto series in nicer clothing and is selling it to young black woman. The show sends mixed signals. How are professional women with "choices", so dick-deprived? If you aren't getting any hits, then you move to a newer pond - in any relationship. The main character allowed the privledged senior professor to talk her out of a better "deal" for a freaking promise. If you watch the series Black woman, ask yourself, "are you stupid or are you dumb?" That sums up the series.

It’s a YES for me!
So listen, a lot of y’all seem to have a lot to say on this here platform which leaves me wondering if you keep that same energy for non-Black content.

I mean we beg and beg for representation, for a seat at the table - but then we tear the table down before the meal even begins. My goodness. Every thing isn’t for everyone. If you didn’t like the show, cool. Watch something else. But what is this desire to tear down Black art. Because that’s what this is - art - and last I checked non-Black folks get to showcase and regurgitate their art on television and in cinema without the masses pulling out their pitchforks, because it wasn’t up to their so-called standards, because it reminds them of XYZ, because it doesn’t check every single arbitrary box, because it isn’t Oscar-worthy.

Some things just… are. It’s entertainment. We endure in REAL LIFE enough. We’ve finally entered an era where Black content doesn’t automatically include Black trauma/struggle. That . is . a . win.

Also, Black professional women (and men) with degrees, and good jobs, and multiple letters behind and in front of their names are allowed to be ratchet too, also, as well. If your friends group can’t talk, laugh, and enjoy all the things without a filter, are you really even friends.

Also, Meagan Good is an A-C-T-R-E-S-S. That is her whole profession. Playing fictional characters. She’s been doing that since she was a child and way before she got married to some man. So in what world does a woman decide to not perform the duties of her job/career/profession/passion because of what her husband does or doesn’t do for a living. It’s really time for some of y’all to leave that “first lady” trope at the altar. Please. Thank you. And Amen.

Also, gay people exist. Black gay people exist. And they deserve representation too. The end.

Also, the litter police LOL really LOL that’s where you draw the line LOL just say you hate the show and go LOL

And lastly, and I say this (somewhat) respectfully, to the non-Black people that have jumped on this here platform with commentary on Black life, Black womanhood, Black TV/cinema, and all things Black in general - don’t.

I Am Very Disappointed
I had high hopes and I looked forward in watching the series 'Harlem'. I am so disappointed by the content in this series.

These are supposed to be 4 college educated professioinal black woman. However, the character Angie is acting like a hood rat. I don't like the lesbian character either because how many straight black females you know that hangs out constantly with a lesbian or vice versa? Black lesbians like to associate with other lesbians and not with heterosexaul women.

Some white people complained about segregation and only black characters in this series. Duh, we still live in a segregated society in the United States. I don't have any white friends nor do I hang out with white people in life. Even at work and in high school, the blacks hang out together and the whites do the same. I attended an HBCU school (Morgan State University) where Blacks were the majority on campus.

I was looking forward in seeing a series about 4 black professional women focusing on everyday life that we as black people deal with in our community and in society. Force diversity now on television and in the movies is not realistic in the real world.

I Liked It a Lot!
It’s so funny that we can watch shows just like this with a white cast and love it but as soon as it’s Black people, other Black people (particularly women) are over critical and super defensive.. Yes leaving the purse was over the top but it’s ENTERTAINMENT!! I loved the humor because I literally laughed. A lot. Too bad in 2021 people can no longer get a joke and want everything to be “realistic” and serious. Sheesh! I mean we all know that these types of women don’t really exist. Right?… WRONG!

Uugghh!
I saw the low reviews and thought, let me give this a chance and decide for myself. Well, less than five minutes in, I could understand why. But I continued to watch, hoping, the distasteful script & cheesy acting would take a turn for the better. Nope!!! Painstakingly made it thru episode 1; couldn't get past episode 2. This is one of the worst things I've seen in a while. Very disappointing! But judge for yourself. Uugghh!

I wanted to love this show.
This was Sex in the City with Black women. The women were all immature, neurotic, and out of touch with reality. I find that sort of woman/child, can't cope with adult situations dysfunctional banter to be annoying. In the first two or three episodes, one young lady goes to Long Island to meet a man she met on a dating app and she LEAVES HER PURSE WITH HIM while she goes to the bathroom. I'm supposed to believe that a college professor, a woman with a PhD., can't deal with seeing her ex and she has to act like she's 12 years old in the process. The singer, who is a true artist and creative, she is someone I wanted to relate to, she seems oblivious to the fact that she can't be a leech on her friends without repercussions. The lesbian went through extraordinary lengths to not be broken up with from a woman she wanted to break up with. The Titanic engagement party . . . I don't even have words for that. I'm a bit older than these characters and I know that TV influences collective group behavior but I pray there aren't 30 something Black women out there being this stupid in real life. None of the women are women I would want to be friends with, none of them were really Black.

I think they took episodes and scenes that didn't make the cut for Sex and the City and just put Black actresses in the place of the white women.

This is definitely the East Coat version of what I missed in Insecure
I am NOT comparing the two - OK I am LOL because they sort of remind me of each other. Women trying to figure it all out while living and loving. I am always surprised at Amazon reviews - like it is so obvious that this show is not for certain people so WHY DO THEY INSIST ON REVIEWING IT MUCH LESS EVEN WATCHING IT. This is for a particular audience and you know you are either that audience OR not within the first five minutes.At that point, leave the room and let the rest of us enjoy the party! Is this show perfect - nope it has some weak points (people can point to a certain "colorism" among the friends. But this is a romping good time and I love it. The sound track is amazing and it is exactly the type of easy watching comedy/drama I need to get me mind away from some not so great things happening in the world. If we can tolerate how many seasons of Seinfeld and Friends - why can't we have these also nice things like Insecure and Harlem without people who were not invited to the party constantly coming into the room to complain about the loud music and how much fun we are having. Geez, let us live! I want to also add that the show slightly reminds me of Living Single but the male perspective is not as present as it was in Living Single - miss that show so much!!!!! But Harlem is filling a bit of that hole in my heart.
