ColorofChange Calls For Less Violence on Real Housewives of Atlanta

The Real Housewives of Atlanta - Season 6

In a statement the Hollywood Reporter acquired, ColorofChange Campaign Director, Arisha Hatch gives her thoughts, “We’ve been in contact with NBCUniversal last week verbally and shared concerns in writing — specifically about this Real Housewives of Atlanta confrontation that was coming up.”

Rather than calling for cancellation,  the civil rights organization is asking for a a “no excessive physical confrontations policy” to be implemented. The full statement is on the ColorofChange website. Here is a snippet from the statement, speaking to the overall lack of positive representations of Black women, “From the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion to the second season of Married to Medicine, the physical violence displayed during Bravo’s Sunday primetime lineup was deeply alarming…Research shows that dehumanizing portrayals of Black people on television lead to real world consequences for Black folks—influencing how we are treated by doctors, judges, teachers, and lawmakers. No matter how entertaining, this should be the last fight between Black women that Bravo profits from.”

    This doesn’t go far enough. Get rid of the show and others like it-COMPLETELY! Reality TV should be reduced to the size of a toilet so it can be flushed into the sewer where it belongs.

  2. Yeah just get rid of the show period too much of this reality garbage on tv as it is.

  3. I can’t stand watching RHOA because it is a false, classless representation of African American women. I hate that Porsha had to dip to Kenya’s level but, Kenya got just a little of what was long over due.
