    How?
  • Yes marcu5, please - do elaborate on that statement.

    Probably because the black guy who replaced T-Dog also died without having an important role in any season :P But there is still ass-kicking Michonne! ^^

    if you have to ask how, you're probably a bigot as well
  • Don't worry, Tyreese will stay for longer than T-Dog 1 & 2. He played a pretty important role in the comics.

    I just never saw it as racist,I just saw it as someone else got killed.

    What?
  • OK, I'm gonna intervene here.

    marcu5 - If we ask you to explain a statement you've made, that doesn't make people a bigot. It means we didn't understand why you made the statement.

    Either explain what you meant with your 'racist franchise' statement or don't respond at all.
  • what's so hard to understand? so far no black guy ever had any importance in the franchise. T-Dog had barely any lines or screentime. Got a little bit better at mid-end S2 but still he never had any important role. then he get's replaced with Oscar (aka T-Dog 2), who also doesn't get any screentime nor lines nor importance. He also dies and now we have black guy #3, Tyreese who will fill the black guy role.

    It just seems there can only always be 1 black guy and once another appears they get rid of the former black guy.
