See........I think its more than just about talented writers.......its all about perspective.......there is very little diversity on GH and no major character is from a minority.......with the melting pot that the United States is........and wanting to get more viewership........it seems like common sense to depict more diversity.......and even though I understand.........its all about hieghtened reality and over-the-top dramas........those can still be engaging without turning people into race caricatures.........cos seriously......those stereo-types are racist in of themselves.........and that's just plain wrong........
I agree Rain, it can be done, one of the most popular shows on television was the Cosby show. Look at this message board it is very diverse, we represent various countries, cultures, and race, yet we enjoy sharing what we are passionate about be it Liason, JaSam, Elizabeth, LuSam, family, world issues, whatever it is we all have an opinion, some things we know about some we don't, but we learn from each other. TPTB should learn from that and add diversity that is true, because there are positive and negative in the human race period. Just let it be represented in a balance way be it gender or race. 3)
