[quote]Although many kids grew up without exposure to the struggles of feminism or even Vietnam as well. But a 100+ episode series telling a story of growing up in the 60s could have given at least one half hour to racial issues, no matter how suburbanized the focus.[/quote] Certainly fair....

[quote]Well, that made the black inclusion all the more awkward, then. In one episode, the middle school baseball coach was black - and turned out to be a war buddy of Jack. In another, Kevin had a young, black female English teacher who was so iconoclastic that she fully challenged the school admin...

[quote]In retrospect, race deserved a few episodes. And would have been good if there had been a recurring black character. [/quote] This is probably true. But there was still a lot of legit segregation at the time, so it's kind of obvious why they left it out. There were, and still are, many co...

re: For the baws old enough to remember, would you go back to a world with no Internet? - Freauxzen
If we had a more honest and critical media, this wouldn't be as big a problem. It would be better if we retained shaming "bad" habits, hobbies and choices, but we have a media that forces celebrating any and everything. So they aren't critical of any information or reaction and are only supportin...
