Everything on television is policed by politically correct dwarves

Only one story is allowed: woman good, ethnic minority man good, white man evil

    Well-written article, and so true. But the writer exaggerates a bit saying all men are depicted as bad. In most crime TV series, there is what’s called the Token White Leading Man, surrounded by an array of vismin characters that comprise his team.

    Last night my dear wife and I tried to watch a new crime drama, “Major Crimes”. It was completely unwatchable. The production stack the crime fighting team with an array of vismin types. But what was worse was that everybody spoke in stale cliches, to match their identity group status. The dialogue was so stale, it reeked.

      White men can be good, if they are either a) old and wise, or b) a good-looking rebel. Either one must be apologetic for their white maleness.

    And there must be at least one homosexual or lesbian on every TV show. Except daytime TV. Then all males must be homosexual.

    As a Jew who stumbled into the BBC show ‘Spooks’ known in the US as “MI-5” I can tell you that television is a sewer and the people who make it should be clubbed to death with a shovel, like rats.
