The Good Doctor is a new TV show that airs on ABC every Monday. It is a show that will bring back the conversation of inclusion in the work place and ask ourselves if we have ever been bias against someone who is not like us?
The plot of the show is set at a prestigious St. Bonaventure hospital, starring Freddie Highmore who plays Dr. Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome. The moment Dr Murphy joins this hospital of skeptics he is challenged alone the way not because he’s not a good surgeon, but because of his social skills and his inability to communicate effectively.
This show will make you realize the importance of humility and embracing others no matter what their background, because as it turns out life is a teachable journey and we have a chance to learn from someone standing next to us.
Last night the reunion show of the Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) turned into a brawl as Porsha charged on Kenya like a wild cat. The whole fight was incited by Kenya, who kept on taunting Porcha with annoying silly remarks, and drove Porsha to lose her mind by acting like a classless woman on steroids.
It was a perfect setup by Kenya and Porsha fell through into the trap. The whole season we have seen Kenya mastermind plans to make other women scoop low and act like idiots, while she acted as if she was the victim all along. I’m pretty sure last night when she provoked Porsha, she knew what she was doing, and her plan might have just worked out, because I think Porsha might end up not coming back to the show. We just have to wait and see.
Why is it that most black women on these reality shows behave like thugs? It’s a pity that they continue to portray the same stereotypical image we are trying to not associate ourselves with, the image set by hollywood of an angry black woman. Ladies, if you want respect, why not respect yourselves and stop acting like wild animals especially when you are on television like that. Elevate your images with self-respect.
