The Chimu people once had a vast empire that stretched more than 1000 kilometres from southern Ecuador down the coast of Peru. It was built on the remnants fo the Moche culture. Their empire thrived thanks to complicated water works to bring water to the desert, and the abundant seafood off the…

Family Matters Tackles Race

Family Matters may have featured a lot of physical comedy and farcical situations, but lets never forget that this show was also revolutionary for the 90’s. In an episode that deals with Laura campaigning to breakup racial tension in her school, she institutes Black History month. What happens next is still shocking. I’ll never forget watching this with my family one evening during dinner. It was very important and was the first time I have ever heard of this repugnant racial slur. It created a dialogue between my family that evening. A dialogue that is still important to have today.

The upper-middle class lifestyle of the Pritchett family is beginning to feel out of place in a television landscape where new comedies like Orange is the New Black produce humor out of struggles that relate to a wider spectrum of viewers across class and race divides. After five years and five consecutive Best Comedy wins, Modern Family, which positions itself as the television reality of today’s modern families, is so out of touch with the financial realities of those real-life families that the awards it receives are now getting harder and harder to defend."

Why ‘Modern Family’s’ Fifth Emmy Should Be Its Last
