Spoilers. Stop now.

But every time a new black male character shows up, they kill off the existing black male character.

    Law of conservation of brothers?

  3. Brass Says:

    Only one, indeed.

  4. Monte Says:

    Over in YouTubeland, MrColionNoir said basically the same thing when he mentioned recently that they have a “black guy quota. ” Sure seems like you guys are right, especially after this latest episode.

  5. G.O.L.D. Says:

    Best line on the The Talking Dead (AMC’s post-show recap): Between Merle, the Governor and Hershel, they make one complete pirate.

  6. Mike Says:

    NOW you’ve done it:

    “DOJ Reportedly Investigating AMC Television for Racist Storytelling; AG Holder Personally Briefed on Situation.”

  7. kbiel Says:

    Outside of academia and government, diversity quotas work like all other real world quotas, they have both maxima and minima.

    Blackspacity. they reached it.

    Well, now that they have the character that everyone was waiting for…..

    well, don’t read the comic. He may not be here long.

    Gotta say, that Governor is the toughest damn dude in the world…still walking and talking and giving speeches after that wound. Apparently he also has the “anti-zombie” immune system because that sort of wound DEMANDS that it get infected RIGHT FREAKING NOW.

    “…every time a new black male character shows up, they kill off the existing black male character.”

    Just like Saturday Night Live. Gotta have the token black guy and the token fat, dumb guy.

    Malik: What are you doing here?
    Other black guy at party: What do you mean?
    Malik: I am supposed to be the only black guy at this party.
    Other black guy at party: Oh, damn. Shit.
    Malik: I know, I know.
    Other black guy at party, Malik: [Together] It’s whack.

    Did you notice that almost all of the first season cast main characters have been killed off and when they got killed off they found new white people? I guess that truth never made it to the discussion, but it does show how Obama got elected President. Quick, we need an unqualified black man to be president or else the show ain’t right.

  13. Dustydog Says:

    In fairness, some of the zombies look like they are played by black actors.

  14. S Lee Says:

    I think it would have provided an interesting take if Daryl and Merle were black american country boys.

  15. G.O.L.D. Says:

    They also have Jewish thrash metal guys as walkers.

  16. Bubblehead Les Says:

    Wish Netflix would get its act together and start showing fresh episodes of AMC’s Finest Show: Hell on Wheels.

  17. NotClauswitz Says:

    What about Gay black guys, how many of those are on the show?

  18. Cargosquid Says:

    Gay black transgender zombies now, dammit!

    Anybody besides me waiting to see when Carl gets rid of his dad’s dictatorship by coup d’etat for being stupid?

  19. Smince Says:

    Either the producers/writers haven’t taken into account the racial makeup of the Atlanta area, or they are saying that blacks are less likely to survive than whites in a zombie apocalypse. Either way, clearly racist.
