I had a few questions going through my mind as I read this and I'll just get to it:
1. Does anyone think that the negative perceptions of white, working class women were enhanced because of this show? Or do you think that people with negative perceptions of this class were changed in a positive way making them more accepting and less judgmental? Definitely draw on personal perception if needed!
2. What kind of political/cultural events do you think caused the creation of a show so focused on the working class woman in 1988?
3. Do you think this kind of show would have worked if Roseanne was not so strong-minded and outgoing? Aka, could SHE have been the bumbling fool in the family? Why or why not?
