[quote]“For the sake of integrity and character of black female physicians, we must ask that Bravo immediately remove and cancel Married to Medicine from its channel, website, and any other media,” it reads. “Black female physicians only compose 1% of the American workforce of physicians. Due to our small numbers, the depiction of Black female doctors in media, on any scale, highly affects the public’s view on the character of all future and current African-American female doctors.
What a stupid petition since the show doesn't even feature female doctors.
There's nothing worse than entitled women who sit around and do nothing but spend their husbands' hard-earned money.
RACI$T, RACI$T, RACI$T!
R2 would give anything to sit around and spend his husband's money.
The Industry thinks black people are edgy, but most people aren't interested in them based on their race. The Ebony/Ivory pairing was provocative in the 60s ("I Spy") but it and all identity casting is just tired now.
But you can't tell Hollywood anything.
I just caught a marathon of this series today. These women are crazier than the Housewives. There are two women who are doctors. The rest are married to doctors. One of the crazier women is married to a weird, bow tie wearing, closet case
This show is my guilty pleasure. And the reunion is on now!
85% of black doctors practicing today got in med school under affirmative action regs.

But of course you won't complain about rich white people and white children of celebrities pulling strings to get into college. You can ask Gwyneth Paltrow about that...
No...the whole basis is that it's supposed to be a fantasy show.
Family wealth is the overriding influence in college and professional school admissions R8, not race.
And getting into medical school is not some golden ticket, you still have to be able to pass the rigorous and high workload courses, successful complete your STEP exams, be able to complete your clinical rotations while impressing the physician staff and get accepted into a residency where you have to actually prove yourself as a physician.
If you can do those things, you deserve to be a physician.
And I've never seen this show but I'll end this post with an old joke
How you you hide a $100 bill from a neurosurgeon? Pin it to their child. The idea of being married to medicine can be quite real.
