Two different TV shows, CNBC’s “Newbos: The Rise of America’s New Black Overclass,” and HBO’s The Black List will be on TV this week. The Black List 1 was dope and I’m looking forward to part 2. The show highlighted a very diverse range of successful African Americans all of whom were very talented and intelligent as well as being successful in their fields . Newbos on the other hand seems to focus on the rappers and athletes who already get an extensive amount of coverage and seem to perpetuate stereotypes of materialistic, reckless African American celebrities, being defined by their money not smarts or skills.

CNBC is presenting a the old stereotypical paths to black success, either you slangin crack rock or you got  wicked jump shot rather than the path of education and hard work. I’m not sure how in an era in which we have an African American president that rappers and athletes are our new overclass just another way to perpetuate the stereotype that the only successful African Americans are athletes and entertainers. If Baby is part of this new black overclass, I want nothing to do with it.
