I'm excited about seeing more and more black people on TV. Today I'm creating my own Web series, and I'm encouraged by what creators like Shonda Rhimes and Kenya Barris have done in network television. Of course, it wasn't always that way. And even now, in this age of new voices and faces of color in the industry, in this age of Obama and Oprah, the struggle continues.

Or maybe what our first cat, Brownie, was doing under the bed when she would leave us little fur encrusted gifts. Mmmmmm. Life Hacks.
