Random tv thing I don’t like: when they put a token Black woman (or WoC) in a position of power only to have her authority constantly and continuously undermined by shitty white men. 

I’m looking at you Eureka and Suits. 


I’ve actually been thinking about procedurals that do that, have a Black boss so the show’s diverse, but then basically have her in this sexless tough-but-fair occasionally antagonist role for the main white dude to bounce off of. Like, this is just off the top of my head, but adding to that list: Detroit 1-8-7, Forever, Mentalist (until Abbott, all the bosses were white men, which the show already had many of in the main cast, while Hightower was the only Black female with significant screentime), and The Glades.
