The whole franchise probably should have ended after Roseanne Barr's racist tirade.
She didn't know Valerie Jarrett was black and was also on Ambien.
"I thought that bitch was white!"
ABC is set to move forward with a new ten-episode series, weeks after its disgraced star's racist tweet fiasco.
No one should shed any tears for the sitcom star, but it's time to look at the broader dynamics of what's become a toxic social media site.

Hardly anyone is standing by Roseanne Barr after her insane tweets led to ABC canceling her show.
The network said Barr's tweet about Valerie Jarrett was inconsistent with its values.
ABC Entertainment acted within hours of Roseanne Barr's racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett.
The key to understanding the show, like the 2016 election, is the audience's perception of itself, not actual demographics.

Traditional networks are increasingly looking at rebooting old shows and that might actually be a win for progressives.
