Tell Us Which Black Character From A TV Show Deserved So Much Better

Angela from Boy Meets World deserved the world.

If you're anything like me, you're deeply obsessed with watching any and every TV show out there.

Fox

But whenever you watch them, most of the time you notice a lot of horrible things — a big one being how they treat their black characters.

NBC

From playing "the token black friend" to delivering stereotypical dialogue, these characters deserved so much better.

Maybe you believed Jodie and Mack from Daria were amazing characters with progressive minds and were totally underutilized throughout the series.

MTV

Or perhaps you lovvvved Angela from Boy Meets World and thought she deserved a greater character arc than the one they wrote for her.

ABC

Or maybe you were a true Susie Carmichael stan from Rugrats and believed there was more to her character than just being Angelica's archenemy.

Nickelodeon

Whoever it is, we want to know. Tell us which black character from a TV show deserved better in the comments below, and how they were mistreated on the show.

The WB

The best submissions will be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post.
