Here’s a Great 2017 TV Quote

Dear White People

Dear White People” (“Chapter IX”)

Coco: I’m smarter than you. I’m more ambitious than you. Thirty years from now, when I am the second black female president, all you’ll be able to do is think about me. And I won’t remember your name.

(We had a chance to speak with “Dear White People” creator Justin Simien last week about the process of making the first season. He had some great insights on the show’s visual look, the soundtrack and the pivotal Barry Jenkins-directed episode.)

Back on Friday with the weekend edition of PeekTV. In the meantime, remember that “Recess” was perfect.
