The question is why is Olivia Pope so wildly popular among black women and no one else? I think the appeal to black women is the "strong" "independent" black woman being a jump off to a power full white man and Olivia Pope being able to "steal" him" from his coveted white wife. This seems to be a fantasy many black women appear to have. As far as black men "hating"Olivia Pope, I'm unaware of black men creating web pages petitioning against the show or the character. Now, black women have created web pages doing just that in regards to petitioning black men.

Keri Washington is a beautiful black woman and it's nice to see that for a change on T.V. However, it's unfortunate that the show in my opinion is riddled with stereotypes.

I've never seen the show.

But from what I hear; just a word to the Saudi's:

Don't let your daughters grow up to be cab drivers.

when black women have no dignity they prevent their son's from defending their honor.

@ka-bon

i agree and the key word you used is DIGNITY. Dignity = CONDUCT, or speech indicative of SELF RESPECT OR APPRECIATION OF THE GRAVITY OF THE SITUATION OR OCCASION.

Negro bed wenches or aspiring ones have no understanding of having dignity.
