Like most crime procedurals, this show virtually never depicts blacks as criminals even though in NYC, over 70% of the violent crime crime is committed by blacks. Blacks are cast as cops, lawyers, judges, scientists, doctors, and victims of crimes at the hands of whites, but never, ever, as perps. That's why I was shocked to see in the opening scene, 3 black men robbing and killing an off duty cop. But the joke was on me when they turned out to be 3 white guys in black man masks. Really?
People call me a racist for posts like this but you can't deny the enormous racial pandering here. I'm a big fan of Gary Sinise but I'm done with this show.
