Black Characters Dumped From "Desperate Housewives"

Although we like to see black actors working because of historical exclusions, we must admit that the addition of the Applewhites, the African American family with the nut in the basement, was not good. The interracial young lovers were hot, but probably did not play well in Kansas. And we love Afre Woodard, but she didn't seem to fit in this show. Maybe Gabriel Union or Thandie Newton would have been a better match. Anyway, we hope another black character will be cast. The Latino community is well represented. Of course, the role is pretty slutty, but hey, as the minorities say in Hollywood, "work is work."
