Good afternoon, Gladiators.
As usual, I woke up thankful for the brain of Shonda Rhimes, but today, I am especially grateful for her and her brain. Why? Because last night, we not only got a spectacular episode of Scandal, we were notified that although certain issues of black culture are touchy and some would like us to “forgive and forget,” we have not forgotten and we never will.
This was, in my opinion, the best episode of the season. No matter if you’ve been watching Scandal all four seasons or for the last four episodes, this one was an episode we could all relate to and follow. Gladiator or not, anyone could have watched last night’s installment and been moved to tears. I know I was.
I appreciate when people such as Shonda Rhimes use their influence to speak on significant social issues as she did last night. So, Shonda, if you’re reading, thank you. Thank you so much.
Let’s get down to business.
