The following comment is not mine and was written by someone in response to CitizenSugar's blog post about racism.
Why should TV execs sit down and say "okay we need X amount of black shows, X amount of white, X amount of asian, X amount of latinos" and so on and so forth? SO what if the networks are whiter than the national average of caucasians to minorities? All that should matter is does the show work, is it funny-dramatic-action packed not "is there enough black people on it" ridiculous.
Blacks Have BET, you dont see me freaking out that the percentage of whites on there is minimal? why? cause its a waste of time.
I think the SockObama is very tongue in cheek but funny and nothing to get riled up about.
Is racism still an issue? i am sure in some places it is, but in the nation as a whole? No.
People like this make me so mad! And how can you say that racism is not an issue in the nation as a whole? Clearly said by someone who has never experienced or even tried to understand the struggles of minorities.
