Sometimes I read posts that criticize Travis, Tuvok, or Sisko and wonder if there's some sort of unspoken or subconscious racism going on, even though every incarnation of the franchise has featured a black actor. It's as if some people are stuck in a 1950s mindset.
1950s? No.

But if Mayweather had just once said, "DYN-O-MITE!" or "Watcha ya' talkin' 'bout, Archer?" I would have been a fan.
I hear ya. I used the 50's because I was born in '51, lived through the Eisenhower "Whites Only" era, saw changes that occured during the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s, and had never even met a black person until I was 18 and went to college (and still remember his name). I actively tried to change how I related to people, but there are some folks who are just unwilling to make the effort.

That's why I decided to add the word "subconscious", because the commenters themselves may not even realize it. I deliberately didn't single anyone out, though I made the suggestion while the Tuvok hair kerfuffle was raging, so the inspiration should be obvious.
Honestly, no.

By far the posts written by folks negative regarding any particular character are usually critical across the spectrum. That is to say that I've not seen an instance of one person saying, "I love everyone on Voyager except Tuvok" Or "Everyone on DS9 is awesome save for Sisko and Worf."

My standard of experience has been that if someone is critical of a particular incarnation of Trek then there are a couple of characters they love, a couple they tolerate, and a few they dislike. Sometimes I've come across individuals who either love or hate all the characters of one specific series' but that has really been rare. Usually it is all a mixed bag.
