Thank you! I love this show, but I’m not oblivious of that fact. People don’t like when you put a mirror to their face and show them the truth. Until some one comes along and deviates from the trend, then this is what it is until actions say otherwise!
I absolutely do not believe “all white people look down or hate black people”. Far from the truth. It is 2014, but I am tired of people acting like this doesn’t exist, because that is straight up not true.
It’s not just a matter of disliking the character. Of course you can dislike a character and not be accused of doing such because of his race. What I’m commenting on is the trend. Whenever a black character is introduced they automatically become the least favorite. No not everyone who dislikes Danny is racist, obviously, but with no concrete evidence as to why when his character exudes the same characteristics his white counterparts, but he is so overwhelming said to be the worst character ever in Who is alarming and it’s because he is one thing the other characters aren’t, and that’s black. It’s not race baiting it’s just the truth.
This is what I don’t get though. “Clingy, Needy, and Jealous”. Clingy because she stayed around him through space and time because clearly he is the expert here. Needy because she asked for instructions? Needy because all the time she has helped saved them, he still never viewed her as Martha Jones, but as not Rose? And was she really jealous of Rose or just wanted to not be constantly, and blatantly shown that she is just not good enough for the Doctor? And for the record, most of her complaints about her relationship with The Doctor, it was to outside people who kept asking her about it or to herself, not him. Again you’re entitled to your opinion. As for Danny, he is pompous because he doesn’t want Clara to lie to him? Jealous because she is spending most of her time with this guy SHE NEVER TOLD HIM ABOUT, arrogant when? Arrogant because he is just as important as a person and a boyfriend to be respected and not constantly lied to? Finally I think people only think he is controlling is because he wants Clara to tell him IF SHE IS BEING PUSHED TO FAR. He didn’t say don’t see him. He didn’t influence any of her choices so where in the hell did he control her?
