Re: The luckiest guy in TOS

The idea that people of color were more likely to be killed on Star Trek because it was the sixties and they were viewed as more disposable is a ridiculous lie that keeps being brought up. Almost every "red shirt" that died on Star Trek was white. Only one black man died in the entire series. I'm not one hundred percent sure but I believe there was one or two at the absolute most people of Latin decent that died. And that is it.

So yeah, I thought about it, "a black dude in a red shirt and he survives the episode" sounds like business as usual on Star Trek
