"*So, The Walking Dead is pretty much the biggest thing on television right now.
Check out the ratings for the season three finale: 12.4 million. That beats most scripted network shows. For a cable program to do that? Its groundbreaking, really. It shows just how much people really do love seeing zombies getting impaled by various sharp objects. We love The Walking Dead, in spite of all of its flaws, like the snore-inducing second season (leave the #&%(-ing barn already!) and the constant behind-the-scenes drama that has robbed it of some momentum and focus. However, we do have one serious quibble with the program. Could it please start giving some minority characters on the show a chance to shine? The twin-sword wielding Michonne is one of the great characters in the comic books, but shes been relegated to a mere plot device in the show, oftentimes in place of another breathless rant from Rick Grimes or poor southern drawl from The Governor. Poor T-Dog was ripped to shreds by zombies in the prison. Big Tiny didnt even last twenty minutes. Morgan, played by the excellent Lennie James had a role in the premiere and appeared in one episode this season and that was it (dont feel too bad for James, though hell be in a new AMC show.
Come on, Walking Dead, give them something to do. Theres no need to relegate these awesome characters to the background or to the jaws of whatever Georgia-area zombie skipped breakfast that day. Theyve already taken a step forward for season four, adding the awesome Chad Coleman (late of The Wire) and Sonequa Martin-Green to the main cast as Tyreese and Sasha. Thats a great start, provided theyre featured prominently in the show. Lets hope. Oh, and lets also hope for Michonne to go hog-wild on some undead in season four. ......"
Awwww isn’t he adorable with his little toy ladies? =)
God this show better not go PC on us.
Please let me know if you would like on or off The Walking Dead ping list.
It probably will. It’s on the Diversity cultists radar now. It’s just a matter of time.
During the show’s season, I sometimes check out a certain WD forum. The posters’ discussions can be interesting, but they are weighed down with PC nonsense. There’s endless moaning and groaning about not enough blacks on the show, patriarchal treatment of/contempt for women, not enough focus on social issues (!). WTH? I tune in to enjoy myself, not get preached at!
Liberals are miserable people.
Yes they are. I just finished applying for a job online and the part I hate is What is your nationality and Race. Liberals cry out we should not profile yet here they are doing the very thing they say we shouldn’t
Social issues??? WTH!
And why when this person brings up race do they only talk about more black people?
Do we know if zombies prefer white or dark, Indian or Chinese?
Personally, I could go for some Won Ton soup right now!
I know, it makes no sense. What, do they want the characters to start talking about homo marriage?
Why do they need to know that about you? There’s no reason at all.
Here in the land of Fruits and Nuts (California) I suppose they want to keep tab if people of minority are being hired. One time I refuse to mention it when I had to go to a new doctor, and they told me “I’m sorry but those are the rules”.
How about we turn Daryl loose on the unnamed author of this piece of advice from the EU PC zombies.
For recording and reporting purposes. This got started back in the 70's when affirmative began. Large employers were required to report how many minorities applied, how many women, how many were hired, etc., etc......
The info could also be used to protect them from attacks by the EEOC if a disgruntled job applicant were to claim discrimination if they weren't hired.......
I worked almost 35 years in HR for my company's manufacturing plant in Detroit and in those years literallly thousands of people passed thru our doors, mainly hourly skilled and production workers. So it was crucial that we maintained those records for EEOC compliance.
So it’s made necessary by the overreaching, demanding arm of the federal government. It figures.
Oh, Lord. I’m not going to tell my husband about that.
Let’s hope they’ll leave it out of the show....though I don’t have much hope. Why must EVERYTHING be ruined by queerdom?
Well, you know those poor zombies are just being discriminated against. Clearly, we need to do something about all of the necrophobia! ;)
“Could it please start giving some minority characters on the show a chance to shine?”
Affirmative Action Zombie Killers. WTF? Over.
