Re: Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Look the stereotype is black males abandon their families. It got perpetuated the reasons for why this is different are irrelevant. Not to mention the fact that Avery Brooks got the finale rewritten specifically because of this makes it worse. So in essence DRGIII went against the actor who played Sisko and the writers on the show who reworte a scene specifically because of that. I think its quite obvious that a firestorm would be unleashed.

Probably does not help that the only other major black male from the shows in Geordi is incapable of getting laid and having relationships with females.

Now, I don't approve of personal attacks or the charges of racism but this is was an obvious land mine. Now as I said not a racist but an arrogant move, most definitely but I am sure if he builds Sisko back up to greater heights all will be forgiven. Of course if this book does even more damage well....
