0
0


- Empire provides a nuanced and social powerful portrayal of people of color, while Scream Queens is offensive and irresponsible
- Main character Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) calls the sorority maid a "white mammy" and "house slave"
- Chanel makes the maid recite the "I don't know nothin' about birthin' no babies" line from Gone With the Wind
- Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan are all white
- Author cites other blogs/articles that are basically saying this is lazy/done for shock value/heavy-handed racism for the sake of laughs is not funny
- There are only two black female characters in the cast, both variations of the sassy black female personas Murphy has presented before in "Glee" and the short-lived NBC comedy "The New Normal."
- No explanation as to why Keke Palmer's character would want to join a white sorority run by a racist.
