Join us as we turn up the heat for a great salon debate. Must Kerry Washington's Olivia Pope be noble? We borrow the question from Viola Davis challenge to audiences about black artists and their roles.

While Shonda Rhimes is no stranger to diversity, weaving a web of amazing story lines amongst very diverse casts in several shows, Olivia Pope fans prove to be a different audience. Not all Scandal fans have followed Rhimes Hollywood success from show to show.  As such, her storytelling style is a bit of a shocker — leaving some beyond shocked.

Hair She Goes! Can Scandal Fans Handle A Leading Lady Who Happens to Be A Criminal, a Whore, a Liar  — and Black?
