My gripe is with the Hallmark channel. I've been buying their cards all my life! So have most black folks. I was happy when they first presented their ethnic oriented greeting cards. However, it is past time that Hallmark include their TV channel. I love light romantic made for TV movies reflected by Hallmark. Unfortunately, I've yet to see any one of their movies star an all black cast! Or even a mixed cast with Black leads! All I see are black "best friend" roles, always giving advice -but never with a home or love life of their own. Sure, one or two can be seen in a crowd or if there was a need for a policeman, etc., I suppose, cast to keep us quiet. Were it not for MSNBC, CNN and other news oriented programs , there would be no attractive, bright, articulate black folks on major TV channels! Certainly no programs viewed by most Americans. There has never been a Hallmark production, to my knowledge, whose stories couldn't equally be told by an attractive all Black cast. Most are just everyday, boy meet girl storylines without any reference to race. These storylines wouldn't have to change. The black middle class is no different from the white middle class. We fall in and out of love like everyone else! And we have beautiful and handsome actors, too! I am so grateful for the TV news outlets whose bright, knowledgeable minority emcees and their guests make me proud and educate those who for so long have been unaware that we even exist! Singing and dancing and hitting a ball is not all that we do! It's just all we've been allowed to do! I'm counting on Hallmark. It's the first greeting card counter I approach no matter the occasion! I want their channel to be the first I go to when I'm in the mood for love!


Love Taye! September 21st for the return is killing me! That seems like a lifetime!


Love the show, love Mr. Diggs.
