    to save white people. loyal and self-less aren't they?

    "I think you're barking up the wrong tree here pal."

    Choose to live in denial of the obvious if you so like. Popular culture does not necessarily involve turning off one's critical thinking skills.

    Question, would the public--you and your family/friends--be as into the show if the main characters, in particular if Rick were cast as a black man, were people of color? Think hard on that one.

      wasn't exactly noble.

      Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!

    •  irrelevant question? (0+ / 0-)

      It takes more than a switch of the color of cast members to make a good show.  

      Some of Americas most popular shows have featured all black or majority black casts.  

      Who ya gonna shoot wit dat homie, you'd rather blast an original instead of a phony, true macaroni, you don't even know me, and why does your gun say n****z only?
