Kenya Barris’ #blackAF Is Getting Brutal Reviews … But Should You Still Watch?




Kenya Barris creates Black content. From “black-ish”, to “grown-ish”, and most recently “mixed-ish”, Barris is known for successfully amplifying the voices and experiences of Black folks in America … namely the middle-upper class. However, folks think his new Netflix show “#blackAF”, has completely missed the mark.

The show is again, like “black-ish”, loosely based on Barris’ life. The series stars Kenya as a fictionalized version of himself and Rashida Jones as his wife Joya. As described by IndieWire:

#blackAF flips the script on what we’ve come to expect a family comedy series to be. Pulling back the curtain, #blackAF uncovers the messy, unfiltered, and often hilarious world of what it means to be a ‘new money’ black family trying to get it right in a modern world where ‘right’ is no longer a fixed concept.

And while this may have been their intent, the execution fell flat for many…

The reviews may be abysmal, but are you still tuning in?
