Media Thoughts: SPOILER ALERT! PSKTBC

*SPOILER ALERT!*

The below post is about the December 9, 2014 episode of Agents of SHIELD. If you haven’t seen it, STOP READING!!!!

Dear Agents of SHIELD,

Please Stop Killing The Black Characters (PSKTBC). Just stop. You are all socially aware people and have made wonderful characters for us to enjoy now please let the black characters live. And by that I also mean the black regular characters, i.e. Mac and Trip. Killing of black characters, or People of Color for that matter, happens ways too often in our media and is a trope I think you are poise to set on its head. Yes your predominantly white cast is lovely but we need more color.

And yes yes I LOVE Agent May and am thrilled that the actress who plays Skye is Chinese. YAY!! I just would like some more black characters and yes to other colors as well. You are such a FABULOUS SHOW!!! LOVE YOU! I just would love to see, well, more color.

Also could you please update your Cast page? If all of these other wonderful characters you are introducing are just secondary well then I sort of understand. However, it would be nice to see them on this page. Keep your audience guessing as to who you will off next.

Also if you need to kill a secondary character, feel free to off Nick Blood. Both hubby and I agree he is obnoxious. Or off Grant; he’s a whiner. Yeah Grant is a major character but grr….

Thank you. Yes I am obviously a rabid fan. 🙂

P.S. I promise to do a dance of joy if Trip comes back. Yes I will tape it and post it.

P.P.S. I LOVE your show. 🙂

P.P.P.S. I pretty much have a girl crush on all of the women on this show and no I’m not afraid to admit. This means I would carry their swag at a con any day. 🙂 Plus get them lattes.
