  1. I’m glad he said this because too many people were trying to downplay how black women are treating in the business.

  2. He should not breach a contract. He’s a producer. He knows he’d be sued. He made a commitment before the boycott. I respect a man of his word.

    I can only IMAGINE who the network wanted instead of Tichina. They’re shortsighted. Her comedic timing is everything. I’m glad he fought for her.

    “I quit! My husband has TWO jobs!!” I literally use that line everywhere (even tho my hubs only has 1 job)
    For me, it means “I don’t have to be bothered. My man holds me DOWN. He gets it DONE!” It tickles me every time I think of her saying it and the way she said it. LOL!

    Anyway she’s an OG. They better recognize.

  3. Chris has always been very pro black and vocal on the issues. He’s still hosting the Oscars because he plans on dragging them. Watch and see.

    1. Exactly. The storm has quieted down for now but once it’s time for the Oscars, KABOOM!! All hell gon break loose I can see it now.

  4. Y’all really think Chris is going to be up there c–ning for white folks? Lol no, he has something up his sleeve for them and although I won’t be watching, I can’t wait to see the clips! Of course, he has to fulfill his contract and I’m pretty sure that check will be amazing. Go Chris!
