Being old, retired and not in good health, I spend a lot of time watching television. I am appalled at the fare offered now days. It seems as if whoever writes these programs has a terrible problem with White people. It seems as if they seek to portray White America in the worst possible way. The absolute nadir are the naked programs. They have people alone, naked and afraid, people selling real estate in the buff and people dating strangers sans clothing. I cannot wait until they have the "Welding Naked" program, sparks a flying. Worse, southerners seem to be singled out as ignorant, toothless louts. The actors affect false southern accents and parade around shirtless in bib overalls. In some cases, they are even barefoot. In all cases, they are festooned with horrible tatoos. Have they no sense of decency? The language is disgusting. They love the F word. I mean the four letter one that isn't fork, fish or Ford. I even heard it used in commercial for a hotel booking company. It used to be that profanity was forbidden on television. At the worst, it would merit a beep. That hotel booking company will never get my business. Then there are the commercials that always portray men as stupid and women as the wise one. The Toyota commercials are extremely irritating. I will never buy a Toyota. I will not do business with or buy a product from a company that demeans men. Black folks are about twelve per cent of the population in this country, but they seem to be about half the people in television commercials. What about Latinos and Asians? Don't they buy products also? Now, watch the reruns of Rockford Files, Mayberry RFD, Cannon, Hawaii Five O. See the difference, people are civilized, dressed decently and not talking nasty. Thank God for reruns.
