Why do so many black controversial shows have such short shelf lives?

The Carmichael Show is one of my favorite TV shows. It is a sitcom that features a family of black people who discuss every day topics from "Plan B birth control" to "the N-word". They take the topic of the show, no matter how controversial, and do a masterful job of making the topic hilarious, while exposing the audience to different perspectives on it.

Well, the show is coming to an end after 3 seasons. Not because of ratings. Not because of protests. Because the creator and star of the show has decided that 3 seasons is enough and that he wants to quit.

First of all, I totally understand that Jerrod Carmichael has the right to do whatever it is that he wants. However, this is yet another black-created show, within the past decade or so, that I can recall, that has suffered an unceremonious death.

Chappelle's Show, Key & Peele, Boondocks, to name a few.  Why does it seem that if it points out racism, it finds its way out of the door?

We'll discuss that, if a transgender has a responsibility to reveal themselves while dating, and we'll Get Crystalized on this episode of the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!  "No experts.  Just opinions."
