Interracial relationships are on a rise in the United States. Interracial married couples grew by 28 percent from 2000 to 2010, making 8.4 percent of all current U.S. marriages mixed-raced.
So, it’s no surprise that there has been an explosion of television shows featuring interracial couples. However, mainstream television series that portray Black people in interracial relationships – with Black women in particular – appear to far outnumber programs depicting Black couples.
In 1975, “The Jefferson" was the first television series to garner attention to featuring the first African American/Caucasian marriage. The series ran for 10-years. Just recently, there has been a huge influx of television shows that promote interracial relationship – with its most popular and most controversial – ABC’s "Scandal".
On this episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio, we’re going to examine the rise of shows which promote interracial relationships, and the decrease of shows that depict Black relationships and marriages. We are asking the question, “Is Black marriage going away in mainstream television?”

This should be another discussion-filled episode, as we talk about Nicki Minaj's latest provacative cover art controversey. As we always do, we'll make sure to cover all elements of hip hop in New York City, and this week, the Rock Steady Crew 37th anniversary weekend was a great example of how one of hip hop's pioneering organizations continues to celebrate all aspects of hip hop music and culture.
We'll also talk with Danielle Mastrion who was commissioned to paint a Beastie Boys tribute mural on the corner of Rivington and Ludlow, the iconic intersection on the cover of the group's album Paul's Boutique.
You know we like to go old to the new, so we'll have a bunch of new, noteworthy rap releases to share with you.
So tune in LIVE starting at 10pm, and get ready to call in and discuss with us.
Bringing you controversey since August 30th! Tonight most of the show will be devoted to the passing of Steelers Coach Chuck Noll and Game 5 Stanley Cup Finals.
