I'm glad for him but a contract means nothing. I'm not naive enough to suddenly think they're going to start writing for him. See Tika for that one.

Exactly. Tilford was on contract and how much airtime did he get? This just means Ringgold moved up in the token hierarchy. That black cop, Abs McNegro, is up next.

That may be, but choosing to keep the "ugly," ogre brother over the "hot," sexy one is a good move forward IMO, token or not. Small steps.

Small steps to continue tokenism? The guy has been on the show since 2006/07 and he's now getting a contract. I think he's the only person who's been on the show that long without one when everyone came AFTER him were given insta contracts and storylines. Tilford was thrown under the bus in a pathetic storyline but it suddenly becomes a choice of who to keep when we have beautiful Caucasians 24-35 masquerading in all their glory with more to come. Good luck Ringgold - you'll need it.

Are you serious?! ARE. YOU. SERIOUS?!

First of all Sean Ringgold maybe the "ugly ogre" brother to you but don't drop that simple-minded bull on the rest of us. If I had to choose between him and Tilford I'd choose Sean Ringgold in a New York second. SR did something a few years ago that made him a full blown hero in my eyes and nothing will ever change that. I know people who've met him personally and every one of them walked away spellbound by how amazing he was. Small steps? What kind of reasoning is that?! You want to give OLTL credit for switching out one token for another just because you like the one who passes the paper bag test?

This isn't a small step. It isn't any step at all. It's the same bait and switch bullshit OLTL has been dishing out for the last years with Rachel, RJ, Hank, and Layla. Nobody is fooled by this except the ones who want to be and the ones too stupid to know any better. Six months from now you'll be saying "small steps" when Ringgold is cut loose and Abs McNegro is on contract and after that it'll be "Oh goodie, Vivian BlackChick just got a contract. I love her so much! I can't wait until Kwanzaa when she shows up again." Small steps.

Wow, you're EXTREMELY offensive. I didn't mean what I said offensively in any way. Yes, the show has problems in dealing with African Americans and the show's choices are offensive, IMO. My small steps remark had NOTHING to do with that or him being African American. It had to do with FINALLY giving the fan favorite, the "ugly" one, the one who patiently waited for a LITTLE bit of spotlight some love. Duh, I'd guess MOST of us prefer Sean Ringgold, INCLUDING me. That was the POINT. That's ALL I meant. I'm saying hopefully, with the writers listening to fans the tiniest bit, maybe we can have more full-fledged African American characters. Or some returns of veteran characters we love. Of course the odds are stacked against us. Shoot me for at least trying to be optimistic. Wow.

    • Does Jill still own 25% of Jabot? I haven't kept up in a while and I just saw a tweet that Jill offered a position to Billy at Chancellor which made me question what gave Jill the authority to offer a position within that company?  Did she gain Chancellor stock when she thought she was Kay's daughter and just never gave it back, or is she the proxy for her son Phillip's stock?  I would hope that they didn't write in that she owns part of Fenmore's because Neil died before Jill found out they were related and Lauren was his sole heir (which doesn't suddenly change when a bastard child is found).
    • @soapfan770 Agree, Lillie Belle Barber was the last of the messy matriarchs. One of the most powerful scenes on 1990s Y&R was the Dru/Lillie Belle confrontation where Dru learned she was the result of marital rape.
    • Yeah, I saw the same mention of 12, but it varies all the time, so it must just be an average of 12 throughout the year.    The last few weeks, for example, have been this:   11/15...12 11/16...13 11/17...12 11/18...14 11/19...14 11/22...11 11/23...14 11/24...12 11/26...14 11/29...15 11/30...11 12/1...16 12/2...12
