Yeah! Could we please get some white people out there, representin'? We need to level the playing field, and have equal opportunity!

The only white people I've seen on that show were always gay.

I love watching Caroline Mason in Memphis - she has a way of getting them to talk, and with a certain attitude.

Yes but many of the detectives are racially diverse. The show goes where they have lots of murders. I don't really see it as racist, just sad that people are getting killed over stupid things.

Probably because in our quest to diversify the WASP has become a minority.

I know this to be true in Miami.

I am amazed at the number of suspects that willingly admit to thier crimes.


Well, on second thought, if they were smart, they wouldn't be in the police interveiw room....
