I watched two episodes of "227" and was thoroughly disgusted. This show is as bad as "Good Times." As a college student, I get fed up seeing blacks in stereotypical roles. This show is no exception: Marla Gibbs plays a gossipy, passive housewife and her husband is super macho. And since when do black women sit on their porches all day long and gossip?
