Guess who is Keeping Up? Is it America's First Family?
In a CNN article they pointed out that a guy name Jamall Young had tuned in to celebrate the election of the nation's first African-American president. But he realized that he was witnessing another historic first. A black family was being featured as the first family, not the "problem family" or the "funny family."
Obama didn't shout at his wife, Michelle, to shut up. The first lady didn't roll her eyes and tell Obama to act like a man. No laugh track kicked in, no one danced, and no police sirens wailed in the background.
"The last time we had an image of a black family that was this positive it was "The Cosby Show," but this is the Real McCoy," says Jacqueline Moore Bowles, national president of Jack and Jill of America Inc., a predominantly black organization for youths.
OMG! The Obama's were compared to the Cosby's...You can't be Keeping Up with the Huxtables more than that! lol
No but it is great to finally see a Black family that they do not portray as having all of these problems. They are such a good representation of an ideal Black American family. Barack and Michelle are successful and great parents!
Thanks for truly showing us how to Keep Up!
