    Don't cast black people if you don't want race brought up. That is apart of who we are. We can't just not talk about it. We don't have that privilege as white people do. SMH this is just foolish

    If i were white I would have stopped watching because of Eboni. She annoyed me, but I could still stomach her. At the same time, producers could have edited out a lot of her wokeness. Comments like white fragility, white priviledge and White supremacist for absolutely NO REASON was not going to ever be enjoyable to a white audience who just wants to see women get a little drunk.

    Its not being "woke" or whatever they are trying to call being enlightened... its the woman shoving an agenda down their/our throats regardless of the time, place, or audience and making every single thing a race issue. And coincidentally enough, she is rude to Bershan for not being aggressive enough... But she is too busy talking to have a conversation or listen to anything else but her predetermined opinions.

    As many women/people of color keep getting underrepresented, and disrespected all the time in America, it's about time a whole housewives franchise after how many years now, is finally getting a huge dose of their their one-sided/way of showing the country & 👉🏿A Very State Well Konwn to be 👉🏽 "A Melting Pot" has never had any Latin/Hispanic, Asian, Black, Caribbean women on the show...so the most self (white) privileged dominant women on all these shows, are finding it hard to tackle the conversation/talks of race, religion, creed, etcetera...🙄😒

    I skipped a season or two because the show was starting to become more of the same thing really… the trash was becoming trashier and the alcoholism was getting worse with Sonja, Dorinda and Ramona. The drama wasn’t funny and interesting anymore. Fast forward to this season when I decided to rewatch again to see if it’s improved in anyway, and it turns out it’s gotten worse. Simply unwatchable with the new girl. This is not her platform. At all!! She should be looking for a job at CNN, not Bravo ! She’s not a good fit with any of the ladies. She’s so serious all the time and wants everything to be intense all the time and talk about race race race and nothing but race!!! I could barely finish 2 episodes in 4 weeks. I tried my best… I really think Eboni is not a fit for any Bravo show not even Atl or Potomac because she’s just not “entertaining”. We tune in for entertainment not a lecture or CNN news bulletin 🙃😫😫😫 I seriously can’t with this Eboni girl 😭😭😭 And Bravo please don’t go the woke route either because that’s guaranteed low viewership for sure! Sincerely from a conservative black woman who’s sick of it all!!! Please and thank you 😊 💕🙏🏽😇

    The latest season is insufferable. It is the manner and style in which Eboni constantly raises these issues. It is not the issues themselves, it is this accusatory, preachy and morally superior manner in which they are presented and hurled at the women. In Atlanta they have always brought up issues that black people face qua their blackness and it never came across like this. So it is not that there is no room for such issues on the Real Housewives. Eboni really has to cut it out. Leah is insufferable. Bershan is insufferable. Boring horrible season! The Real Housewives have always been a form of escapism, a form of aestheticism and camp, now they are being destroyed by introducing moral issues in a berating and teaching way.

    Yes Sunny You Moron, It's not an option? OK, Go Woke Go Broke, It's a real thing, White Fragility and Privilege OMFG! all these shows are tanking because of this, all because a select few have decided that this is important now in 2020-2021and it will be America's focus moving forward, this choice to make everything about race and equity has created an awkwardness that wasn't there just a few short years ago and brainwashing our kids is making enemies among families and of life long friendships, sorry but you and people like you are the reason this country is in the state it's in for backing this craziness, But News Flash all this CRT BS won't last past Xmas, Publicly CRT has less than 25% support and trust me, it's way less than 25%, when you mess with our kids, you're up shit's creek without a paddle

    Mmmmm...I don’t think Ramona wanted to keep talking about it because it was crystal clear that Eboni kept trying to single her out and insinuate that she is racist or a white supremacist because she voted for Trump. I think that’s the problem people have. I think it’s fine to talk about these issues but Eboni was looking to embarrass Ramona for no good reason. Eboni was judging her based on her political beliefs. Being a republican does not make a person racist. There are racists on both sides and actually I think to only speak about racism and constantly remind people that they are black and to try to convince them that white people are all racists is damaging and oppressive. I wish all the housewives shows were more diverse because I think there are fabulous intelligent wealthy and classy women of all races and they aren’t all represented on these shows. I also think it’s fine to discuss these issues but I don’t think anyone enjoys it being only about those topics. I am sure there is more to Eboni than just that and I would have liked to see that.

    I hate to say it, but I don’t want to watch those sort of confrontation play out on what is essentially an escapism soap opera. I don’t watch this particular franchise, but I just don’t want to see these sorts of manufactured confrontations acted out when I have to witness the real thing in everyday society. TOO REAL FOR REALITY TV.

    I like Ebony on the show but that is maybe because I agree with her. I don’t know why the ratings are suffering but it seems like every time blackness is shown honestly it gets canceled or the ratings suffer; ie The Underground or Lovecraft Country. It seems that all the outrage and movement after George Floyd was just as vapid as reality tv.

    Maybe the problem with American culture is the "escape from reality". The irony is that the escape, has become reality. Could it be that's why everything that's happened in the last year and a half was jaw dropping to some (and not others) because it's very much real life...too real if you will? Has there ever been normalcy in American culture?

    Sunny, we're all equal and we live in a free country. So the white woman (I don't watch RHONY) who doesn't want to discuss a topic (forget that it's racism for a second) with Eboni, simply doesn't have to discuss it. Period. Furthermore, it's rude for Eboni to brand her with buzzwords like #whitefragility and #gaslighting, just because she doesn't want to discuss this particular topic. You say the white woman is 'coming from a place of privilege.' But what you don't say is what that suggests. That the white woman has to give up her entire body, unwillingly, just because Eboni wants to talk with her about something that she doesn't want to talk about. Again, please forget the topic. Forcing someone to listen to another person is a form of false imprisonment.

    I think that it was bad for the brand Whoopi. As a lawyer and minority, it really makes me cringe. I think that placing Eboni on the show was a mistake. She seems to really bring the mood down and turn it into a fox news analysis. I think Eboni is a smart and beautiful woman. But her bringing up race in every conversation really turns a lot of the viewers off.

    While all ratings have been slow for Covid shows, as a POC, I agree with Megan, watching reality TV like the housewives isn’t to be confronted once again with the harsh reality of the world, racism, classism, etc. We want to see petty fights over divorces, cheating rumors, viewers want to see wine throws and table flips. Not one person will watch the show and think oh they needed to address the real problems 🤦🏾‍♂️

    RHONY knew exactly who Eboni was when they cast her for the show. She's ALWAYS been this way. That's always been her brand. Being on a reality show... of course she's going to only be MORE of who she is in real life.

    After Ebony says her thing and Ramona responds Ebony says to Ramona 'that's your privilege, this is the white female fragility Ramona'. Not everything boils down to skin color but apparently there are people that think so. I might have responded to Ebony that maybe it was her black female fragility talking. I'd want to throw Ebony's words right back at her. Oh, but if Ramona had done that it'd be as if the world ended. If Ebony can say things like that, Ramona should be able to say the same...but if she did she'd be called a racist and cancel culture would kick in.

    Politicizing everything is bad for business and for the human psyche. Escapism is a real thing. Everyone, no matter your background, likes escapism. We all work hard and have life stress. Sometimes we dont want to hear about real world problems when watching a "reality" show. Entertainment is supposed to entertain. Wanting not to be miserable is a healthy human desire. If you stay steeped in all the issues all day its unhealthy.
