ABC has one of the most diverse fall programming slates in TV history, and critics want to know why.

At the Television Critics Association press tour Tuesday, ABC chief Paul Lee fielded questions from reporters pushing for a more detailed explanation for why ABC greenlit three ethnic family comedies (Anthony Anderson’s Black-ish, Cristela Alonzo’s Cristela, and Eddie Huang’s Fresh Off the Boat, coming midseason), plus another drama series starring a black actress, Shonda Rhimes’ How to Get Away with Murder.

WOW.

what a time to be alive.

Keep this one in your back pocket for the next time someone acts like an ass and then tells you they’ve been through a lot of stuff. Respectful and yet still firmly keeping respect for yourself.

When guys say “I prefer girls who don’t wear makeup,” 97% of the time what they mean is “I want a girl with perfectly clear creamy skin, no under eye circles, rosy lips, dark eyelashes, defined eyebrows, and I want her to have all this ~naturally~ without any hint she works for it because that would be ~shallow~, so basically I expect to date someone who is like 0.04% of the population.”
