  •  Kendra - killed off in Buffy. As I was saying. (0+ / 0-)

    Joss' tendency to quickly kill off POC in Buffy was so well-known that black fans started a death watch community just to follow the principal in the last season (the LJ comm "deadbrowalking"), waiting for the shoe to drop.

    Gunn - yeah, I'll give you that. Joss finally figured out after a full year that having an all-white cast in a series set in downtown L.A. (he had a friggin' IRISH dude in the cast before having an African-American one) might look a little hinky.

    I'd like to believe "he cast the right person for the job" if that wasn't used so often to explain why yet another white person got a job that should have gone to a POC. (Don't get me started on Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan, or four untalented white kids in the Airbender film.)

    Joss is better than a lot of his colleagues - but there's still room for improvement. (And apparently no room for actors of color in Much Ado About Nothing.)
