Have you ever imagined a show that addressed racism and other things that minorities face America? Now, what if said show represented the minority group in question with dignity and realness instead of in the all-too-familiar stereotypical manner? You're probably thinking, "That'll never happen."
Well, that just goes to show that you haven't been watching Queen Sugar. For shame!
Nova's response to blatant racism during Queen Sugar's mid-season finale for season two is every reason why you should be tuning into the show. The fierce journalist refuses to stand down in the face of adversity and, as a result, shows us the lioness spirit of the African American women. Hello, somebody!
Other just fab moments include Nova and Charley's blow up over the elder sibling's comments about the younger's marriage, and Ralph Angel's never-ending list of screw ups. That guy can never get it right.
