Yeah, I'm looking at you, Isaiah Washington. You said this, you really did, so don't go pretending later on that you didn't.
"Well, it didn't help me on the set that I was a black man who wasn't a mush-mouth Negro walking around with his head in his hands all the time. I didn't speak like I'd just left the plantation and that can be a problem for people sometime(s.)"
I don't know what you think you said, but I'll tell you how it sounds to everyone else. To everyone else, it sounds like you just accused a whole lot of black folk of sucking up to Whitey in order to keep their jobs in the house. You just accused all the other black actors who do their work each week without offending their fellow castmates, of bowing and scraping in order to not be sent farther south in chains.
Here's a roundup of some my favorite black characters of the 2006-2007 season. The thing is, I had to think real hard about this, Mr. Washington, because, in my puny head, my enjoyment of them really had little to do with where their ancestors first appeared on the earth.
