MyNetwork TV (ended 2007)
hmm i dont really care that there are a few ethnic roles in the show.....and im a gay black man, actually my biological dad was white, and the mother was black......
Aaron (moreso) and Josh are pretty cute....i think Theo is a sap, my dad was a drunk and a gambler.lol.........hey now, hes making out with the Qwest lady....i saw that coming that she was connected to Blythe.....even though i missed the mon and tues episodes .......I think that killing Hope will make Blythe go nuts, being haunted by the ghost.
|First off, you have no indication that I'm Black or not. You just assume that only a Black person could be upset by stereotypical typecasting of a Black man. Secondly, the references you made only serve to reinforce my point. Kim Porter's character fled an abusive husband with enough "skills" to serve as a pretty cocktail waitress. Her character drives the plot in no significant way, so we see her about twice a week. Femi Emiola's character plays a former drug addict / prostitute who basically gets beaten (literally!) and berated by her pretty white boss at every turn. I won't even get into the slavery implications of all that. Either way, your point is moot. I will predict here in writing that both of them will either be killed or ignominiously written off the show before it reaches the 12th week. Mark my words. I'll come back to this thread to remind you of this when it comes to pass. So trust me, I overlooked a number of potential instances of racism on this show. Frankly, I gave them credit for having the courage to allow an interracial romance between Lani and Taylor. So when the Black man showed up, I was optimistic to see how he would move the story. Turns out, he was just there to show us the dregs of society and to get chased away like a punk by Aaron, who was clearly his superior (yeah, right). I know that everything we see isn't an indication of racism. But you need to learn that sometimes it really is.|
Well, you never came back as you promised. Why? Because your wrong! Femi Emiola's character got the last laugh in the end. Don't make promises you can't keep like that, unless your a writer for the series.
