The Cosby Show, what has long been considered the greatest black sitcom of all time, celebrates its 30th anniversary in two weeks. That the show’s legendary run is marked by a return to a more diverse television landscape this fall seems fitting: NBC, ABC, and FOX, along with other networks, will debut a variety of shows that cast minority actors in lead roles (several are women of color). This push for more nuanced programming brings to mind the 1990s, a decade known for its rich portrayal of black life through shows like Living Single and Roc. Here, a completely indisputable ranking of black sitcoms that aired between 1990 and 1999.

AHH MY CHILDHOOD!!!!
the concept of liking someone and them liking you back and you deciding to date each other literally just fucking baffles me because it has never once happened for me in my entire life
how are you all doing this
how are you people making it look so easy
how are you finding people who like you back and want to date you and then actually do it
Thank you so much, John Oliver.

You’re a boy. You’ve been coddled and cared for, pampered and hugged. For you, it’s always summertime; living is easy. Daddy’s rich, momma’s good looking, you’re a Grant! You got money in your blood. You are a boy. I’m a man.
this scene gave me chills
I was shouting during this scene…
A mother’s worst nightmare.
She was preaching
this gave me chills
Black woman who lost her son just preached on systemic racism, antiblackness, Black ppls internalized self-hatred and white supremacy.
But some of y’all missed it
"I want a plus-sized princess!"
"I want a princess who can’t sing!"
"I want a princess who can fight!"
"I want a non-traditional princess!"
In conclusion Fiona is great and just because Disney didn’t make her doesn’t mean she doesn’t exist.
really in the mood for receiving $50,000,000
