7. Rowan: “[You have to be] twice as good to get half of what they have.”
Black parents with any aspirations for their children have been telling their kids this for years. Race has never been the center of the conversation on “Scandal,” but it has been referenced in passing on the show. While it’s good to see that race isn’t a huge factor in this universe, it’s also good to see that the world of “Scandal” recognizes the challenges that Black people face while working towards their goals.
