I have no earthly idea. For that matter, how the hell are most of the vapid, trashy, stupid reality shows still on the air? Apparently the majority of Americans enjoy watching that sh*t. I sure as hell don't. The only reality show I ever watch anymore is the Biggest Loser, and I barely watch that. Even though I know that it isn't realistic to lose that much weight so fast, I still find it inspiring to watch these people who are so obese, get down to a healthy weight.

The sad thing about Biggest Losers is that 2/3 of them balloon up to the old weight within six months, because they DID lose it the wrong way.

You don't need a majority of Americans to watch a show (and you'll never get that viewership anyway), just enough to make it profitable. And the "great" thing about reality television is that it's really cheap to produce compared to paying popular sitcom stars a million bucks per episode.

Actually, I've been muted/banned up until a few hours ago. Fortunately, I've been incredibly busy anyway and decided just to lurk for awhile. As much as I enjoy following Jophiel's trolling, that one was subpar.

Although I see both sides of the story, I find it interesting that people see this as an "interracial dating" issue when the claim was no "people of color". The thought of an all Asian or all Hispanic or all Black cast never crossed your minds. This isn't about interracial dating, but ratings. People like to see "themselves" or people that they can relate to in the media. That same cast in another country probably wouldn't hold water, but is ideal for ratings in the U.S. This only supports my theory of active racial discrimination, where people aren't discriminated on merit, but simply the color of their skin in order to increase revenue.
Quite clearly the claim of the lawsuit was no people of color in the 'central' role of the pre-existing show. Why would we 'think' about an all black show?

You're reaching into places that the complaint/lawsuit doesn't go.

Welcome back.

Thanks,

You're missing the point. If the claim were that no "people of color" were in the central role, then it's not an issue on interracial dating. There's no connection on the color of the central person and the color of the remaining participants. Their skin colors could just as easily be "reversed" in the ratio sense of the current racial set up.

Not only that, if the complaint is on the central role, then that implies that there were "people of color" not in the central role, which means there's already "promotion" of interracial dating. If there were NEVER any "person of color" on the show, then that would be a different story.

Except that there is an issue of inter-racial dating. The people filing the complaint or lawsuit or whatever it is, also pointed out that while there have been PoC on the shows, they are usually eliminated fairly quickly. So while the idea of inter-racial dating is there, it isn't actually being practiced, because none of the PoC had a shot anyways, either because the people in charge of the show are racist jerks, or because the Bachelor/ettes are racist jerks.

I'm even less into Asian girls, which seems to separate me from my constituents.

And you'll stay that way until you change your attitude.

Really, "Asian" usually means "Japanese" in this context. If there's a big market for Korean/Chinese/Vietnamese/Etc girls, I've missed it. Maybe Thai but I think that's based more on, ahem, "culture" than raw physical appeal.

If we're talking gamers, then yeah, probably. Something to go along with their anime collection, I suppose. I dunno.

I'm not sure my other white guy friends who don't play games are so discerning, though. I'm pretty sure they take to girls of Chinese or Korean descent just as readily. Thai folk have a more distinct look, as do a lot of Vietnamese, so I'm not sure about them.

I suppose I don't think I would, either. Just that the difference from Japanese to Korean isn't half as pronounced as the difference from Japanese to Thai.

Now, there are definitely some Indian girls I could go for, myself. Smiley: drool

If you find yourself a Japanese girl who's a quarter Chinese you can get people to swear up and down that she's Korean.

Oh, I'm really into Chinese and Vietnamese girls. Chinese, like Japanese girls, have really diverse faces, and Vietnamese girls tend to be on the tall and willowy side. Of the Japanese girls, I tend to often like the ones that look the least western: the ones with long faces, hooked but small and elegant noses, and really narrow eyes. They tend to show up more in historical ghost movies than modern media shows.

If Aung San Suu Kyi is representative of beautiful Burmese women, then they're fantastic as well. Aung San Suu Kyi was drop dead gorgeous for decades when she was younger. I really dig that whole fresh flowers in the hair every day look. Not that she needed it to be spectacular, but it sure helped. Now she's a GILF, and not only for her mind and morals ^-^
