    Definitely can’t wait for the show because I know it will be great with Susan and all the other people in the cast that are in it. It sounds like a show we all should watch. Good luck to everyone.

    The rich Latino character is a devious ploy. It’s a smokescreen to detract from the obvious racism of this soap w/c cast all Latina actresses to portray the help. This soap is a version of “the Help” w/o the racial segregation issues and yet this soap discriminates against racial minorities! Now hollywood’s all for racial diversity among the leading ladies bec they’re going to potray the help. How offensive! This is right up hollywood’s racist alley. Majority of the Latino characters have to be poor and doing menial jobs as the help while the white characters are rich. hollywood always has to have the white characters above the minorities. I’m guessing these Latin characters are going to be hypersexualized and the reason the writers will use is bec it’s a soap. hollywood loves to disseminate those kind of stereotypical images regarding Latinos like high birth rate and many unwed mothers bec it’s part of the hypersexualization. Hollywood loves to hypersexualize blacks and Latinos while asexualize Asian americans thus being white becomes the “norm” and the white establishment is portrayed as the ideal. This soap is going to get a lot of support bec Eva Longoria’s behind it. She was instrumental for the politically liberal and progressive causes of hollywood and she is going to be rewarded by hollywood. Too bad she had to throw her own community under the bus by casting all Latina actresses as the help. Racism as usual from hollywood.

    Uh, you do know the majority of the “help” in Beverly Hills and other rich suburbs of Los Angeles are Latino, don’ t you? There are very few black housekeepers and maids now (and they used to be the majority). How is this show perpetuating a stereotype of racism when it’s actually going on?


    bc replied

    To Mitchell1660: Uh you do know that Asian americans have higher education accomplishments and graduation rates than whites? And that Asian americans have a higher median income than whites? And that according to the LA Times only 40% of americans are among the professional and managerial roles as compared to 50% of Asian americans who are part of professional and managerial roles? Therefore shouldn’t there be a majority of Asian americans among corporate and academic and medical tv shows? Shouldn’t there be more Asian americans among soap operas w/c are abt the wealthy? That should be realistic but of course hollywood won’t portray racial minorities flatteringly bec hollywood’s racist. Obviously there are rich Latinos among LA and there are white women that are the help but hollywood wouldn’t dare go there. hollywood has to preserve white privilege and suppress racial minorities to preserve the white establishment and propagate racism. It’s quite pathetic how hollywood claims to be abt “diversity” when they love to bash racial minorities. The only minority group that hollywood really is for are white lgbts bec they’re the “right kind of minority” for racist hollywood.

    Michael E Knight auditioned 4 Mark Cherry but I guess he didn’t get a part. I wish he he was going to be on this show. That would really give me a reason to watch.
