Quote KatieKay: Well Good God! Such a lot of fuss over a misunderstanding! I read Ran's first post and got the point immediately! I don't agree, but I got it!
(I think) Ran's saying that the white characters seems to show all kinds of sexifying crap, but they cut it off when we might see a black character get it on. I agree!
None of the soaps show black characters boinking like they do the white characters! It's almost as though the writers or whoever are afraid that the audience would be horrified to see black boinking. Or, God forbid, interracial boinking.
I get it, I see it, I agree, and I am a fat white woman.
BUT - I do not agree with Ran on the essence of the thread.... I DO NOT WANT TO SEE ANYBODY OF ANY COLOR BOINKING CONSTANTLY!!! ACK! I HAVE CINEMAX! I WILL WATCH THAT FOR MY DAILY BOINKING FIX! GIVE US SOME STORIES WITH SUBSTANCE!
Thanks KatieKay - and you're CLOSE! :) But my point is that Blacks on the show need real s/l's like Ollie...like Aggie... Like Amber... in each of these cases the characters were given STORYLINES. That's all I want for the Black characters. As you recall, Aggie, for instance, was NOT brought in as a sexpot (tho she became one *lol_) Aggie's s/l was great. Why can't we have the same depth for Dayzee, Marcus or Justin.
