Are We There Yet? (2010)
Not impressed at all.
After a long week at work I was relaxing and watching whatever came up on TV. This show is what came up; I had never seen or heard of it, so I decided to watch it. I was watching the episode of the lost rat in the house and the mother becoming angry with her friend for taking her daughter to the mall and allowing an unknown man (unknown to the family) buy the daughter three very expensive gifts.
I was hooked in on the message regarding the daughter allowing an unknown older man to buy her expensive gifts for no reason. I thought mom was sending a good message when she told her friend she did not like her daughter being exposed to a, for lack of a better work, sugar daddy.
However, when mom asked dad his opinion, he assured mom that their daughter was not going to grow up to be like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, or Britney Spears "you know, like white women." I could not believe what I heard.
Won't spoil the rest of the show but I will tell you that during a later conversation between mom and her best friend, mom said she would not need to worry about her daughter; "she won't grow up to be like be like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, or Britney Spears "you know, like white women."
I wasn't convinced I had heard such a blatant racist statement when dad first said it; I told myself I must have misheard. But when mom repeated the comment verbatim, I was clear.
I am highly disappointed that a show like this would spout such obvious racism. I wasn't impressed with the mom-daughter element either; the message was hypocritical.
