LOL.......Roc?

They were struggling and the dad and brother lived with them.


Come on....although I like Roc, but come on.

They're comparing a guy with a GED(James Evens Jr-AKA-J.J.) to a family with A Dr. and Lawyer as parents and a family in which everyone attends great collages. Gee-whiz.

Nothing wrong with getting a GED but you can't put Good Times in the same league as The Cosby Show.

Rodg and Rerun........Really? LOL

It wasn't any clowns on Roc, He was a hard working garbage man and his wife was a nurse and he lived with his Dad and Brother. Who on the show was FOOLISH?


Rerun was a CLOWN on what's happening

J.J was a CLWN on Good Times

I never said they were clowns.........I'm comparing the lifestyle in which they lived.

Are you telling me Roc and The Cosby's were in the same bracket income and education wise?


That's my point nothing more. I don't want to get into a pissing match about how hard working Roc was, that's not my point. I'm comparing income and education.

In case you did not know, not all blacks are "blue collar". That's my point and my focus.


Nothing wrong with that(blue collar) but there are very successful and prominate blacks in this country. Not all blacks are struggling.



I'm finished.

The poster who made the list was trying to say they were black shows with good black role models and that' why I said Good Times and What's Happening
had to be eliminated
