This season of “Power” has had many of their fans on edge.

Fans of the show had to deal with the main character James St. Patrick, AKA Ghost, dealing with being locked up for a crime he did not commit. He had to deal with this until very recently, because his old flame and District Attorney Angela snitched on herself and her team.

“Power” creator Courtney Kemp recently suggested that we have not seen the last of Angela and Ghost together, much to the chagrin of fans.

Interestingly enough, fans have been very critical of how Tasha, played by Naturi Naughton, has been portrayed on the show. In fact, this criticism reached a fever-pitch after the recent episode aired.

On the latest episode, Tasha hooked up with the lawyer that helped get Ghost freed from a pending murder trial. Some fans had enough and called out Courtney on social media.

  1. I do have some reservations about what they are doing with Tasha but part of me thinks Tasha is the one who will win in the end. We’ll see though.

  2. I feel the same way, they make Tasha look like a hood booger while Angela is more polished. And let’s not forget how 50 cent feels about Black women.

  3. Courtney had a tough week. But she has to realize why Tasha is problematic. I still want her to win and I hope he does sooner than later.

  4. I definitely understand how people feel. Tasha deserves better but for some reason, she keeps being made out to be the bad guy while Angela is some savior. It’s annoying.

  5. In the back of some blk minds the white skinned women gets love while the darker skinned women continues to sleep around longing for that perfect relationship. Courtney needs to stop writing for societies new wave and write from a strong woman’s perspective Tasha is about “family” therefore she would be focused on Tariq, her daughter and the image of her family not on jus getting laid!

  6. You got dumb a-s black men on Facebook on Power’s page right now posting Memes calling Tasha a hood rat and Angela Ghost’s true love. Black women have a right to be angry. Dumb a-s black men are using this show to bash us and a black woman is giving them the leverage to do so every week with this sh-tty a-s season.

  7. I think if they keep this bulsh-t up ,the ratings most definitely will suffer..im about tired of watching Angela be the good guy. Tasha is a strong black woman but keeps getting f-cked over….lol..reminds me of Cookie

  8. I never liked Tasha for ghost and I tell you why, she doesn’t love ghost, she just wants to be the wife of the biggest drug dealer in town. When he wanted out the street life she was pressing him to stay in it as if working an honest job/owning a legit business was for suckers. I can’t stand mouse face but atleast her love for ghost was genuine and unconditional.

    1. Wtf is genuine and unconditional about a whore sleeping with a married man. She don’t live ha self so how tf could Shen live ghost. She’s a hood rat with a badge by the way. She lies cheat steal and sleeps her way to the too. Fu*k her and the pedestal you tryna put her on

  9. I can see why people get upset. It’s disappointing seeing another dark skinned black woman portrayed as the “hoodrat” with money, who gets left for a white woman. It gives people another excuse to bash black women online & glorify women with lighter skin tones, since they’re perceived to be nicer & classy. Even if the Angela character makes a mistake, she always gets to redeem herself.
