WM/BF interracial dating agenda pushed too far!
15 November 2017 | by johnnyannabelSee all my reviews

The last two seasons of this series were absolutely horrendous! The problem I have in particular is that they kept pushing the WM/BF interracial dating agenda. Bonnie pretty much plays the town bed wench throughout the entire series. Going from one white-boy (Jeremey) to another (Enzo). The writers had no trouble showing the raunchy on screen scenes between Bonnie and Jeremy and Bonnie and Enzo. However, when it came to developing a BM/WF relationship between Jesse and Caroline, the relationship ends before it really begins as Jesse is killed after he barely kissed Caroline all but one time! These white male writers throw this in our face and think people won't notice.

Was it not enough that white boys were raping black women on plantations during slavery? And now you feel the need to perpetuate this on the big screen? I guess it's OK for a white- boy to date a black woman, but when it comes to a black-man dating a white girl all bets are off. The Bonnie and Enzo storyline was ridiculous and very difficult to watch without changing to another program. The writers clearly had an agenda and made it blatantly obvious. The hypocrisy in Hollywood never ceases to amaze me!
