    We don’t need another show like this! Another strong, independent type character?? Isn’t Scandal enough?? This portrayal of black women gets in the minds of black women and they just run with it….the whole strong independent mindset, making black women NOT marriage material, or un-dateable. Now, if Union played a character more like Claire Huxtable or something, I wouldn’t have anything to say. Show different sides to black women—PLEASE! This is why black people should create their OWN networks, instead of having their hand out to the white man, or trying to appear “equal.” And I’m done.
