Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Watch this, please!!

I legit grew up watching this show (born in 1982). Obviously, a lot of the context went over my head at the time, but I mostly remember, before rewatching as an adult, the unity of these 4 ladies—and it holds up even now (2022)!! And even though I am a Minnesotan Caucasian woman, I never cared that this was a “black” show. All I took away from it (then AND now) was there were 4 strong women who lived together and even though there were obvious disputes…they loved and supported each other! I am a mother to a 20 y/o son, and after watching a few episodes with me, he showed his college roommates and they all it as well!! ☺️♥️🥰💕💞❣️💞🤟🏻
