Im honestly hoping Aneesa never meets Jenna, because Aneesa is super sensitive about her race and has a low tolerance for that type of ignorance.People seem to completely ignore how CeeJai has tried to give Jenna a chance. But Jenna is just too set in her southern ways to see anyone else's opinion. 

Right....it's weird how CeeJai went from a fan favorite to one of the most disliked cast members on the Real World Facebook page. I'm really surprised at all the hate she's receiving. She's the most likable cast member this season IMO. 

I guess it's all subjective. I find her the least likable. I would never associate myself with someone like her.

Jenna is lucky she got CeeJai. Girls like Aneesa or Nia would have dragged her episode 2

No they wouldn't. Jenna didn't do anything fighting worthy. People make stupid comments everyday, doesn't mean they deserved to get popped in the face each time.

Yes they would. Because they don't have the patience CeeJai does. 

Pretty much all of Aneesa's fights in general have had to do with race....she'll do Jenna like she did Trishelle.

We all know Nia won't hesitate, especially if Jenna puts her hands on her first like she did CeeJai.

I do notice they cast black guys as background characters, but to me it seems like they want outspoken black women on RW. Cee Jai, Nia, LaToya seemed to be cast for comedy & drama. On AYTO I think the black women are more laid back because a majority of the men are white and not to stereotype white men.. but they probably aren't going to be attracted to the black girls immediately anyways. So if the black girl is loud & a steroetype as well, then her potential white perfect match probably won't consider her. They have to cast attractive black women that fit in with the hot white/latina/asian girls and that also includes having a long straight weave. Look at Rashida.. no one wanted her. This new blackish girl on AYTO4 can get away with her hair because of her eye color.

Basically why Connor didn't try to have a relationship with Chelsea, why Tyler was always the unpicked 11th girl on Season 2, and why white girls don't even give black guys the time of day. When I think about it most of the black people tend to couple up, until they're not perfect matches, then they just sit and wait for white folks to pay them attention

HA! That is SO true. Especially in the last 3 episodes when everyone starts scrambling to find their perfect match after realizing their top 5 choices aren't their match lololol

You left out Vice Versa, lmao. As if Jenna is Ms. Innocence

Y'all see how they ignore the shit out of the Hollywood cast (even to the point where they won't answer questions about it) when that season was mostly AA + one of the best of the newer generation.

Hollywood not only had fantastic cast and was genuinely enterntaining. It actually had great ratings. I will never understand why they're ignoring that season as a whole. Can it have anything to do with the cast badmouthing MTV and BMP after it aired and after the worst reunion in the history of MTV?

I didn't watch that season, what was wrong with the reunion?

Live broadcast. How did you not see it? though

the audience is in favor of minorities that buck the trend of negative stereotypes associated with them. in the case of arielle and leroy and why they are fan favorites, both are "non threatening black people" which is what production love to cast them. they are the "cute and cuddly, furry black side kicks" and people eat that ish up while someone like simone is considered a *yawn*....."ANOTHER everyday ghetto black girl" by the people

THIS! 

And when white people turn up to me it's more scary because they be rippin they shirt off and shit. Screaming. Knocking shit over. I be ready to move out they way and seek shelter lmaooooo

Also, black twitter be lit!

And as for CeeJai getting hate, it's from the ALL simple bitches so next.

You should give it a try, it's a fantastic season. The reunion was a live Jerry Springer shit show, the castmembers weren't given time to speak and the host hadn't even learned their names. Bri, Kim and Will then did their own post-reunion video in which they badmouthed MTV. It used to be on youtube.

Really? Didn't know that.

It doesn't have to be always about race. Bri (Hollywood) was a fan favorite and she was much more outspoken and "ghetto" (to be clear, I hate this word) than CeeJai. And so was Coral. The fact that I dislike a castmember who is black does not make me racist. Honestly, I believe that expecting a castmember to act a certain way because of their race and complaining that they're "not black enough" is kind of offensive.

To be clear, I dislike this entire cast with the exception of Kaila and Sabrina. I just dislike CeeJai the most. Oh wait, I forgot Chris was on te show, too. I actually find him ten times worse.

I don't think you can say Bri from Hollywood was fan favorite because I think the only social media that was around then was like Myspace which isn't like Twitter where you can see everyone's opinions about a show. If you're referring to polls or something I don't count those because they are rigged or the crazy fans vote for their favorite more than once.

We're not expecting black cast members to act a certain way we are pointing out that this is what the people in charge of casting do when they overlook the opinionated black people and cast those that are typically easy going like Leroy and Arielle or the people like Dean who feels that they have to act a certain way so they don't get hate. The biggest problem is like they are type casting now especially with the black guys because all of the guys since Leroy have pretty much taken the role of the laid back funny guy. Jason and Dean allowed tidbits of their real personality to show but we never got the full thing.

And when Jason and Dean showed their real personality people were "threatened" so they had to hide it again.

I think you guys overthink the casting process tbh

Nehemiah would also fit. They're the type that the racist grandma is alright with because they're "the good ones."

Ceejai's problem isn't that she's "ghetto". It's that she picks fights with idiots and lets herself get frustrated when she shouldn't even bother. At this point everyone knows Jenna is trash. Ceejai doesn't need to waste her energy. That said, I do like that she stood up for Dean. Best ep of the season imo. It wasn't contrived. It felt old school rw to me.

You can't tell me what I overthink when I've been to one and seen it with my own eyes.

Hell I bet Marlon felt the same way Dean did on Portland. Remember when Nia got into the 1st fight and Marlon had a confessional saying "Nia.. it's just not a good look" & next thing we see is him putting on his coat & running down the stairs to leave the house to avoid drama. LOL punk ass.

CeeJai is far more calm than the bitches we be seeing on BGC and LHH so for the people calling CeeJai "ghetto" need to actually get cable and watch other shows with ethnic people.

I think CeeJai and Nia are the closest to real girls were gonna see on this show along with Coral and LaToya.

This seems legit tbh.

Nia's strange, I put her in a category of her own. But Cee Jai is Coral-esque to me. Her convo with Dean in the living room was so real & emotional. Something you don't ever see on other reality tv shows. I can't see Nia being that deep. Toya could possibly pull it off. I know Coral could.

I agree Nia isn't as authentic as we depict her to be but she definitely tell it like it is.

And CeeJai is very  Coral esque to me and that's why I think they cast her cause they wanted a funny black girl definitely not a confrontational one.

Ceejai lacks Coral's natural wit, and tries way too hard to be 'one of the guys' imo. As bad as this sounds, they probably casted her to exploit her experiences as an African American in 2016. She has the background and the education to draw a different crowd into the RW. The only problem is, everyone else in the house keeps getting in the middle of the Jenna situation. People like Chris and Kailah stay inserting themselves b/c they read too many tumblr articles, and by doing so, turn a very serious problem into something petty and annoying.

Lol OKAY

I love CeeJai and think she's one of the best casting choices in a long time. Her story gets to me and you can tell she's really genuine and wants to grow thru the experience. 

Only thing I dislike is she fucks with Dione too much. He's the most annoying fucker ever. If I was ever placed in the house with someone like that who gives themselves nicknames and acts like he does..........
