  1. That's why the ridiculous amount of time Democrats spend trying to "win" people over by pointing out Republican lapses of logic is a complete waste of time.
  2. I don't think that DK can't act. He's stiff (largely due to the severely wooden dialogue & pointless love square the character was immediately thrust in) but he isn't without charm. The problem is that Y&R hired him with the expectation that he be Shemar 2.0 but most of Shemar's appeal (other than his looks) was his charisma which you can't teach. There was no attempt at establishing the character prior to Y&R shoving him into GC Buzz debacle as the Malcolm to Devon's Neil. The character hasn't had anything to do other than act as a buffer for the two actresses of color (when he isn't stuck in some variation of awkward Quad From Hell scenes). It's only a matter of time before Y&R reverts back to its usual Lane Forever stance with Juliet going full blown psycho and with the SORAS'ing of the twins I wouldn't be surprised to see Juliet seduce Charlie and get pregnant.
  3. The same reason Y&R never tested Jordan with any of its white actresses. Once Y&R pairs Mariah with Scott & reunites Hevon, it will throw DK into an underwritten interracial relationship with a directionless white female character that goes nowhere & gets no airtime then he will be fired (just like RW/Tyler).
  4. It really wasn't a war. It was (and still is) N&P fans harassing everyone (Shick fans in particular) who aren't impressed with their ship.
  5. Democrats are gonna continue to have problems as long as they continue to act like Republicans (centering whiteness).
  6. The thing is you can. Trump is proof of that. The problem is that those who only seek to maintain their position in the current system want desperately to evade accountability.
  7. Don't forget Nick & Phyllis fans who are still trying to keep Sage's memory alive in between harassing Sharon Case.
  8. There's not a lot of daylight between white conservatives and white liberals.
  9. Barbara jumping through the window will never not be funny.
  10. +1. Single Sharon has been really refreshing & it would be nice for her to have a platonic male friend to confide in (which she hasn't really had since Tony). But soaps of this era don't do male/female friendships (unless they eventually end with the characters sleeping together) which is a shame because Sharon (and Nick) both need a LONG break from relationships.
  11. Sharon & Scott are terrible. The actor has more chemistry with GT but Y&R wants to make Lauren upset about EVIL Sharon as if Phyllis being with her son is a better option.
  12. Yep. When you place Devon against ANY of his characters peers (male or female) from Y&R the difference is even more stark. Which proves you can LITERALLY be, and do, ANYTHING, in Daytime as long as a lack of melanin is involved.
  13. Could you imagine their reaction if Kevin looked like Ravi or Jordan? It's not like time would make the difference. The majority of SSM's new characters have been around for close to six months & they're almost all failures.
  14. Jack was in his 30's in the early 80's so it's not like he would be a spring chicken either way.
  15. True, but it's especially irritating now because Y&R is trying to turn her into a full blown heroine. Every so often Y&R likes to act as if Nick has a life (besides tending bar) but it doesn't work because there is nothing to Nick (as a character) anymore. He has no goals, no ambitions, nothing. That's why the show keeps placing him in relationships (and why those relationships keep failing). Not really. It's a random case that any other spy/reporter/agent could do & it makes Cricket look really stupid for pressuring Scotty seeing as the last mission he went on for the govt got him captured until he was rescued by a private citizen. But as usual instead of focusing on family bonding Y&R is placing plot above character again. Chipmunk was never formally charged but that doesn't make it any less disgusting. This could be said of every character on the show right now.
