  1. There was a very popular show (among many friends and others) called ‘Big Shots” that did not return after the writers strike last year. Many people are going thru withdrawal waiting for this show to return. It remains active on my TiVo list (just in case it returns) so I won’t miss an episode. All my sorority sisters (now professional women and doing very well in their respective fields were all gluded to the TV set when ever show aired and did not miss an episode. Nia Long was sensational, very professional and represented the lives and life styles of many professional women of color (similar to Michele Obama). The writing for her character was current, smart and timely at a time when many women of color are achieving career goals, and exploring non-traditional romantic relationships being exposed to men of higher intellect, more goal oriented and progressively her equal in the workplace. These options are long overdue and this show gave women of color a glimpse into the possibilities of more serious loving relationships without fear, apprehension or guilt. Men of Color have long moved on and are fully exploring their romantic partner options.Women of Color have been made to feel guilty for looking over the fence. This is a taboo that is not only unfair but must be disavowed by the public. The media has always led the way by exposing America to cross cultural intermingling and has opened this door for Men of Color and White women. Now the same door should be opened for women of color and men of other races and classes. Bravo for forward thinking writers on ‘Big Shots’ who recognized this changing trend and moved forward with it. It helped to make Women of Color wishing to explore non traditional relationships the opportunity to be seen as beautiful, smart, professional women with serious relationship potential as equal partners in relationships.

  41. Well, not to repeat the hating on aol, but th is is almost certainly by far the most d isappointing l ist thus far. On each sides. How can El Banco Deuno and aol be on the greatest l ist, and then bash art directors club? I really did nothave an issue with that redesign, as well as collateral was looking quite good. You understand what need to happen to be on the l ist for worst logos? New York Philharmonic logo. My hatred of that logo burns in my chest to th is day. The identify from the designer behind that logo is a only explanation for any of its success. The top l ist the year is pretty mediocre for me.I like Mary Shu is remark about her alternatives for the most effective l ist somewhat superior.
