The Caucasian's Guide to Black TV Shows

Empire has changed network television, helping to convince executives that diversity is really worth pushing for.  Lee Daniels and Danny Strong joining forces to create the Empire TV show proves the progress we have made as a society.  People now understand that racism is ignorant yet there is still work to do.


The cast of Empire continues to amaze us every week as families and friends are beginning to unite in order to enjoy the show's entertaining moments together.

As cross-cultural bonding continues to increase, many people find themselves watching television shows where they are the minority, and have no frame of reference from which to base their etiquette.  In order to bridge these cultural gaps, we have developed some rules intended to assist our Caucasian friends who might find themselves watching the Empire TV show with some of their black friends.

There are times when the only white cast member on the show has to go:
