Heroic thoughtsI really enjoy NBC's new show HEROES. But I think there should be more scary, unsavory, criminal black men on it. And I think ALL the white people should beat them up. Not just the crazy stripper. Because I'm concerned about the message.
I know it's overly analytical, and perhaps foolishly old fashioned of me to be concerned about things like the lessons a TV show may teach our kids. But I keep thinking impressionable young Caucasians may be confused by the show's apparent message that only crazy ho bitches should kick the bejesus out of mean, shifty eyed, poorly dressed colored men.
Of course that's not the actual message. I understand that. But children can be easily confused. I'd just like to see ALL the white heroes beat the shit out of the black guys. It would reassure me, and I think the youngsters in the audience would 'get it' better.
I think someone should put a beat down on that lousy junkie and his slut girlfriend, too. He does illegal drugs, and she sleeps around a lot. Moral fiction demands that such behavior be visibly punished. Otherwise, we've lost our center.
I will say this -- the gook guys are kinda cool. I mean, they're helpful and they pretty much do what they're told. So I like them.
I am a little disappointed that Spawn hasn't shown up yet. I mean, the show is called 'Heroes'. You kinda NEED Spawn. Or they should change the name of the show. Still, I'm sure they'll correct this egregious error after the New Year.
