I am almost positive that most people have head of the popular TV show called Everybody Hates Chris. This show is about the life of young Chris Rock. Chris Rock narrarates the show as his younger self goes about his life. This show greatly promotes stereotypes of all races especially black stereotypes. There are multiple episodes where stereotypes were strongly used and Chris's family itself screams black stereotypical family. Chris's is mom is a moody, irritated black woman you spends most of her time with her "girls" at the salon or cooking and cleaning for the family. In one episode Chris's mom, Rochelle, was about to go grocery shopping and, since they were not a well-off family she, of course, needed food stamps and coupons to pay for their purchases. At the grocery store Rochelle runs into an old friend who, in fact, is not using food stamps, but buying name brand foods (something Rochelle cannot provide for her family since they are too expensive). And of course Rochelle tries to play off the fact that she can afford the same things and later get into a big argument with her husband, Julius, later in the show. This episode promotes the stereotype that most black families, like Chris's, can't afford name brand foods and are forced to use food stamps. Another episode that promotes black stereotypes would be the episode in which Chris explains how sickness is dealt in his family. Chris Rock explains that whenever he or his siblings gets sick their mom only says one thing, "Did you take some tylenol?" This is the "blacks can't afford to go to the doctor" stereotype. Another exapmle would be Chris's dad. Chris's dad works two jobs, one in the morning and one at night. He is always sleeping and when he is awake he is either sitting in front of the TV or complaining about the cost of things. This is promoting the stereotype that black men are always working or just sitting around and complaining. This whole show portrays an entirely stereotypical family and probably is making fun of it to some extent, but maybe to other viewers this is the real way blacks act in the 70's. With that said the show is still great and its hilarious.
