I looked around for a light and easy show, something a little fun when I heard of a show coming to America from the UK called Take Me Out. I googled it and found that it was a game dating show, a throwback of sorts, when men, women and hosts threw kisses from their hands to signal, that they’d found a match. You’re probably too young to remember The Dating Game, but I’m okay dating myself for a moment—pun intended.
While I have fond memories of The Dating Game, modern day Reality Date Shows rarely warrant my viewership. The Bachelor and The Bachelorette shows in particular, display blatant signs that they could care less about my demographic. In both age and culture, these shows feature a modicum, if any, of people of color. And God forbid they should show any semblance of intelligent, sexy, influential and established men and women of color, to choose or be chosen.
