Meaning

A sitcom which — because it took place in a lovely, suburban setting, removed from the suffering in the ghettos — was removed from the actual African American experience

That said, it was one of the first series to cast an African American woman in a non-stereotypical role (generally before the 60s, Black actors/actresses in American film were given roles as servants).
