Defend the humanity of black women at all costs
"In a lot of ways Piper was my Trojan Horse. You’re not going to go into a network and sell a show on really fascinating tales of black women, and Latina women, and old women and criminals. But if you take this white girl, this sort of fish out of water, and you follow her in, you can then expand your world and tell all of those other stories. But it’s a hard sell to just go in and try to sell those stories initially. The girl next door, the cool blonde, is a very easy access point, and it’s relatable for a lot of audiences and a lot of networks looking for a certain demographic. It’s useful."

even the show writers know that piper isnt as interesting
I would have had him at any stage.

Black men playing basketball ball

slanging around in gym shorts getting aggressive and screaming
profanities “nigga I’m open”
“wet” they exclaim when they make the basket
