    If you ever hope to have a healthy relationship, I'd get that checked out.

    No, you know what I meant. You must be extremely bored or compensating an insecurity if you care so much about proper grammar.

    How diverse should it be? What percentage of roles need to be non white? Half? 3/4?
    Why is that better than leaving it how it is? Why is that better than people deciding what they want to watch/see and giving it to them?

    So they should be forced to cater to other communities? Should we force the BET to equally represent whites in its programing?

    Why is it okay for one to have pride in being black or being Hispanic or Arab but not be okay to have pride in being white?

    That's what some media assumes, it's also what some media wants you to think.To put it plainly, America is a diverse continent, the United States is a diverse country, made up of many states, many ethnic groups and many communities, but it is dominated by white representation. The majority of the power in the US is in the hands of white people, particularly wealthy white people. If media coverage was equal, including non-white/hetero people for the sake of "political correctness" would not occur.

    That's what the statistics show the US is primarily white and hetero sexual. Does it differ in some areas like in the southwest or urban areas? Surely but in total the US is mostly white and mostly hetero sexual. Thus the media reflects this. I can get census data if you would like but I think this is pretty self explanatory. If things were "equal" it would be greatly biased in the favor of minorities who are not equal in terms of numbers.

    How does it make it worse? Please provide examples.

    It makes it worse by not taking the viewer base into effect. Take a show like meet the browns or everybody loves chris. They are more popular with the black community than the white community because they fit the desire of that viewer base. Just like a show like everybody loves Raymond does better with white households because it caters to the viewers. If you took everybody loves Raymond and changed all the white people out for Asians it would be "worse" to the majority of viewers (whites) because they can no longer relate as well.

    The majority of American media is already biased in the pro-white and heteronormative stance, presenting non-white and a non-heteronormative stance is not biased, it is a balancing act.

    That is how it should be since it represents the largest viewer base. Those with different tastes thus get media from other sources that fit them better thus BET.

    No, I happen to be a white heterosexual. Perhaps it's because I have had a better education, and I live in a diverse city, but your views on "minorities" seem negative and backwards to me. You appear somewhat uninformed on the topic.

    I have no negative views it is simply people are different from one another and associate more closely with people who are similar to them. You having a more liberal education than I does not make views you have correct.

    White hetro people make up the majority of the united states thus are most represented by the media. Why should others be over represented so they become excepted? Why should the media be forced to change so that people outside its main viewer base are represented? It makes for worse media no matter the kind. I can't relate as well to a asain lesbian because I am neither Asian nor a female nor gay. Thus I am less likely to watch it.

    Using the media to spread in essence pro diversity propaganda is biased.

    That is correct I am from the state not the city of NY.

    I make the presumption that you are homosexual or some other kind of minority?

    What I am saying is that the race/gender/orientation of a character should be irrelevant and what ever fits best into the story line should be used. Compared to adding in characters to make things diverse.

    Also the german media during the Nazi's was owned by the state and censored to only say positive things about the government of course it was biased lol.

    Why should they have to be included at all? Why do they need to be "well developed characters" when they are just added to make things include everyone? They should only be included if it is relevant to the story not to make some kind of point.

    Say what you want adding in token women/gays to make the game politically correct is fucking retarded. If they are part of the story line that was written up or as an alternative if your character is the same gender as them so be it but simply adding shit like that to make things politically correct is tasteless.

    I have been told that mental activity tends to maintain function. Anecdotally, I have observed that mathematicians seem to retain their mental agility well into old age. But I don't really know.

    What you want is called a Bible Handbook. These are adjuncts to the Biblical text that provide background information, archaeological findings, maps, historical references, timelines, cross-references, biographies of key characters in the text, etc.

    And, they are usually quite cheap. I suggest:

    I own multiple editions of it, and recommend it to my students.

    TBH, I haven't watched any of the newer series (got confused with too many different universes) post-2000. Save some of the film remakes of the old series.

    I'm reading (via Wiki) that Unicorn takes place in the UC timeline? Consider my interest piqued!
