The walking Dead’s add a black guy, kill a black guy rule

10 Feb

TyreseNow let me first state that I love AMC’s The Walking Dead, it’s my favorite TV show. It’s also one of the most diverse shows on television But I have noticed one troublesome trend, being the old black male character when a new black male character shows up is the equivalent of being a “red shirt” on Star Trek. I like to call it the add a black man kill a black man rule. – See more at: http://www.africanamericanreports.com/2015/02/the-walking-deads-add-one-black-man.html
