Loving Black Family

Today I wanted to discuss a show that used to come on TV and is decent. Decency is rarely seen today. The program is called Roc, and it came on in the early 90's. The show revolves around 4 main people. Roc, a Baltimore sanitation worker, his wife Eleanor, who works in a hospital, his father, and Eleanor's brother. Its nice because it shows a family that loves one another, struggling through Black life in America. They have their ups and downs but it usually ends in some heartwarming uplifting scene. There are times where it the show ends on a depressing note, but that's black life too.

Confucius| author of The Analects Chapter: Part 1: Learning

The Master "Is it not pleasant to learn with a constant perseverance and application?

"Is it not delightful to have friends coming from distant quarters?

"Is he not a man of complete virtue, who feels no discomposure though men may take no note of him?"

The philosopher Yu said, "They are few who, being filial and fraternal, are fond of offending against their superiors. There have been none, who, not liking to offend against their superiors, have been fond of stirring up confusion.

"The superior man bends his attention to what is radical. That being established, all practical courses naturally grow up. Filial piety and fraternal submission,-are they not the root of all benevolent actions?"

The Master said, "Fine words and an insinuating appearance are seldom associated with true virtue."

The philosopher Zeng Zi said, "I daily examine myself on three points:-whether, in transacting business for others, I may have been not faithful;-whether, in intercourse with friends, I may have been not sincere;-whether I may have not mastered and practiced the instructions of my teacher."
