: If a B/B can't see its Black characters as being multi-dimensional players like everyone else on the show, they should just get rid of them altogether.
I've even got a s/l: send Marcus, Justin and Dayzee on a couple's dinner date [w/Donna] at Amber's place and have an entire TREE knock them off that infamous overlook!
Frankly, as someone who's watched B/B since it PREMIERED, I'm tired of seeing a show that denies the reality of modern relationships in America. We saw Stephanie CONSTANTLY 'catching' Donna in hot tubs, bath tubs, bedrooms, etc - and Brooke's all primed to become one of Charlie Sheen's 'goddesses' with all of her and Ridge's daytime soft porn.
Yet not a SINGLE scene of Donna and Justin's wedding night or honeymoon.
I'm also surprised that they COMPLETELY 'erased' Dayzee and Thomas' romantic getaway last week, especially with their propping this s/l up to be a Cinderella story.
It would have been a fantastic op to show the fashions while also giving Dayzee a chance to act outside the coffee shop *lol* Now that I think about it, for something that was set up to be a romantic getaway, they clowned viewers into virtually ignoring that the event even HAPPENED!!
STOP FAKIN' THE FUNK! Either go w/the interracial s/l's fully or cut them out completely!
B/B: if you are so cowardly that you cannot see Black, Latino's or other minorities as anything other than 'party favors', just take them out of the show altogether!
I'll sign that petition because you're absolutely right. These three offer no value whatsoever to the show. They are interfering with the 'good' storylines/actors on the show. And if you're this bent out of shape over something that doesn't exist in this show (racism) then flip over and watch the BET channel. You'll be much happier and so will the rest of us because we won't have to hear you whine anymore.
