Many offered opinions that the characters reflected a side of black same gender loving life that was unrealistic. It simply didn't exist. Others felt the persons represented stereotypes of gay men, black or otherwise. White critics argued that the show didn't have any white leading or supporting actors in any important roles. Therefore, again, it failed to accurately depict queer life. And the list goes on and on.
Most, if not all, of these criticisms leveled against "Noah's Arc," the show, are true and, to a certain point, valid. However, the same can be said for probably 98% of what is presented for our viewing pleasure on the screens of whatever media we choose. Art may reflect life but our life experiences are as diverse as we are. And, the show was produced as entertainment and not a documentary.
