24 Goes Out of Its Way...

Reader comment on item: "24" and Hollywood's Discovery of Radical Islam

Submitted by Laura (United States), Jun 30, 2005 at 20:01

24 goes out of its way to portray a diverse array of terrorists. In the first season, the terrorists were Eastern Europeans. In the second season, Arab terrorists were used, but the conspirators were rich white oil execs. In the third season, it's a disgruntled white soldier with some Mexican drug lords thrown in. It's not until the 4th season that the primary terrorist is Arab, and even then, he has white and Chinese people working for him. I don't understand why people complain that the show is racist or anti-Arab, when it seems like they go out of their way to make the terrorists a wide range of ethnic groups. For crying out loud, has there been any other show ever with a black president?
