  3. The thing that gets me is the defensiveness. As if they know they ain't right and are trying to talk themselves into the fact that they are. I've also noticed that they always seem to flat out not like certain characters (Carter, Gwen, Tara, Zoey, Allison, Uhura) for reasons that don't make a lick of sense ("I just don't like her" or "I just don't like her attitude"). But then when challenged about it, they can never offer plausible examples of these so called flaws in the character that they hate so much.

    And while I'm not saying that there aren't black women out there that don't like certain white characters, when we do, we can usually give a laundry list of reasons why (I mean really...I can write a dissertation on the travesty that is Sookie Stackhouse).

    1. Amen. You can write dissertations on the fail with these characters. Sookie, Elena, Morgana, etc.

  4. clearly there hatred of these characters is because they are black. I mean when I white character behaves the exact same way the fandom has no problem with it. When it is a black female character then suddenly it becomes problematic and they complain about it in the most racially coded ways.

    1. I can't think of one fandom where the black female wasn't the most hated. Not one.

    2. Shoot neither can I. It's like people are just blind to this phenomenon. It's the same thing across the board. Black female charcters are just HATED by the white female fandom. Unfortunately they are usually the most vocal in any given fandom so producers tend to pay attention to them, give in to their riduculous demands and wonder why black viewership drops off significantly.

  5. A year too late but apparently 'Jim Caviezel' "liked" Carter's character more than any of us knew, especially since before Taraji was let go from the show he planted an 'unscripted kiss' on her, and said that she 'always' put him at ease on the set and made him laugh (and if you see the out-takes with them cracking each other up, you'd know what he said about Taraji was for real). Also, just so this white woman should know and others who feel as she does, Caviezel said when he found out she was leaving (the decision of the Creator of the show, who said Taraji knew this when she first signed on but I'm not really sure any of them, Taraji included, realized just how popular the character of Carter would become) he cried because they'd become so close. P.S. NOT all white woman hated the character of Carter, all over Facebook, Twitter, and other sites, a lot of them (and white men too) were very angry and upset, and said they would not go forward since Taraji is no longer a part of the show. They've already moved on without her but no matter what happens, this show will NEVER ever be the same again.

  6. It really doesn't matter what this woman thought as Jim Caviezel (John Reese) planted an unscripted kiss on Taraji's character, said she always put him at ease, he'd miss her terribly, and cried when he read the script with her last performance. Check out the video on YouTube where he didn't even want to let her go, after giving her a deep hug after their performance was over?? This lady and others can hate on Taraji's character all they choose, the guys on and behind the scenes LOVED her, and cried like babies when she left and the other women on the show won't ever be able to touch 'Carter's character', even when the show goes forward without her. As far as I'm concerned, Caviezel knew 'exactly what he was doing with that kiss' (Taraji said he was arguing with the Creator of the show because of 'it'), and I applaud him for doing it. A very wise man indeed.

  7. Now you know James's wife probably strangled him after that kissing scene! Taraji herself said that she was surprised at it. I agree with her,it was probably something be wanted to do all along... lol.

    I stopped watching POI because of the lack of airtime she was given. I can understand why the cast cried of her departure. She was bubbly ,down to earth and wasn't a primary Donna like some actresses can be.Although she wasn't shown as much as those other characters, I just thought they all worked well together.

    It was said something bad was going to happen to all of the characters on that show. I'm going to assume that the producer may stop the show through tragic means. Though I don't think it will be the case, if he goes through it,I could see why. It will seem quite odd without her and he know it. I give that show 2 seasons and it will be gone.

    After that kiss James probably said" See..this what could have been..?" POI wasn't a bad show, but it could have been a far better show if Tarajis would have been used more.
