Default Re: "The Walking Dead" General Stuff & Thaaaangs Thread - Part 8

Sorry if this had been posted elsewhere. I didn't think one interview deserved its own topic, but I applaud Danai Gurira for speaking the truth about the people calling the casting "racist":

The cast has become a point of contention for some who take issue with the show’s racial politics. Lorraine Berry at dubbed the show a “white patriarchy” earlier this year, citing T-Dog’s death and Oscar’s short-lived addition as proof that “the critical mass of black men that can be in Rick’s group is one.” Gurira finds the notion “hilarious.”
“If we literally lined this show up with other shows that are at this level of ratings, or near it, I mean come on,” she says. “This show is actually the most diverse show, I think, right now. I don’t quite know what people are talking about. I’m like, ‘Huh?!’

Have a BIG BLUE Christmas and a Cat-tastic New Year.
