A Reader Reports Multicultural Nationalism In
Scotland

From: A Reader

As someone who believes that media of genuine quality
could probably do more to uplift the country than any
realistic amount of "too-little, too-late" Head
Start programs, I was elated to see that George Lopez`s

bland mediocre dreck of a sitcom
has at last met its
ignominious end. [TV
just got a lot `whiter,` says a canceled George Lopez
,
LA Times Blog,
May 14, 2007]

But imagine my delight when I read that Lopez made a
crybaby fool of himself by hinting at racism and
arrogantly implying that,

as a "Chicano,"
he has some sort of
fundamental right to be polluting the airwaves with his
self-proclaimed "important show."

I guess he forgot that the most popular show on TV, `American
Idol`
, is extensively integrated and plenty of
other hit programs have multi-ethnic casts. Lopez` real
problem is not

racism from studios or indifferent audiences
, but
his failure to produce a worthwhile program.

Cynical tokenism, which has sustained Lopez` show for
five useless seasons, is much more of an insult to
minorities than its merciful cancellation.
