Part of the show’s fantasy is that dating is the last frontier of discrimination. Set in an Atlanta of high-salaried bank shots, tight jersey dresses and the art form formerly known as the music video, “Single Ladies” has been produced by Queen Latifah and explores the lives of a group of friends — Carrie, Samantha, no, I mean to say, Val, Keisha and April — as they navigate the sexual politics of a city where, we’re told, there is one man for every 12 marriage-minded women. Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy), who along with Val (Stacey Dash) is black, manages the Darwinian terrain by keeping her sights set on a big-money partner and never becoming too attached. She doesn’t dare try online dating, as one male friend observes, because she can’t put “gold digger” in her profile.
