“Being Mary Jane” just wrapped up its third season, and the hit BET drama touched on a lot of controversial topics .

But it’s the season finale that had everyone on social media talking.

In the finale, Mary Jane realized she’d prefer to have black love after a hookup with a white man.

Then of course the ending which resulted in Mary Jane’s niece becoming a victim of police brutality was a lot to swallow.

However, the showrunner Mara Brock Akil explains it all.

  1. The white man thing was kind of pointless. It lasted like one episode LOL. I do wish they would have went deeper with the cutty buddy storyline. He was a very interesting character (and fine too LOL).

  2. I loved the whole season. It was just a breath of fresh air for there to be black show on TV that touches on real topics women of color can relate to.

  3. Don’t watch the show, but I don’t like how she says interracial dating is not for her. We black women need more shows promoting interracial dating to encourage us to be more open dating other races. We are the least married race of women and the group most likely not to date interracially. Don’t make no sense to me. Ain’t enough eligible black men, that also are looking for black love, to date all the eligible black women.
