Bravo: Read what happens

August 14, 2009 at 9:37 pm Leave a comment

I watched “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” last night on Bravo, and was at first confused then annoyed that the network provided subtitles for conversations between African-Americans … when there was nothing wrong with the audio.

Does anyone else find this slightly offensive? Conversations between southern caucasian women certainly weren’t subtitled, so why does Bravo feel the need to do so between southern African-Americans? Can the nuances of dialect and turn of phrase be any harder to understand than the snotty girl shrieking of the cast of “NYC Prep?”

I wonder if anyone else has noticed…
