A Space for People of Color, By People of Color. Be Cool.

So you know how your hulu auto plays? So New Amsterdam is a medical show on NBC. And it starts going in the background. And I’m kinda watching it, cause I’m really working. And then IT HAPPENS.

The black male and white female doctors are walking down the hall.

White girl: You want to grab a drink later?

Black guy: nah i’m good.

white girl: But we hooked up and it was cool.

Black guy: yeah. it was. you’re great, but I’d rather us be friends.

white girl: Why

black guy:....

White girl: Tell me.

Black guy: I don’t date white girls.



Her face. her. face. HER FACE.

Then she’s all I don’t get it. And he says, I’m 35 I want kids. I want those kids to be black. And I don’t want to be another successful black marrying and being with a white woman. I have a vision for what I want my life to look like. And then she goes. I still don’t get it. And he’s like, exactly.

I know what you’re thinking, you’re like whatev he just probably dates her two episodes from now. BUT NO HE DOESN’T, he goes with this unambiguous black lawyer lady, in later episodes.

So I guess I am watching this show now y’all.

Also and this is burying the lede, but FREEMA AGYEMAN IS IN IT!!!!
