Why was Beverly Hills, 90210, the TV series, so racist?

Beverly Hills, 90210 was a teen drama that aired on FOX from 1990-2000. It made Luke Perry and Shannen Doherty stars. I recall that show and I hated it- I hated how prissy the main characters but what I didn't like the most about it was that the only blacks they had on that show were gays. That is racist- why was that show so racist?

What are you talking about dude. Just because there was black co stars or extras on the show and they were gay doesn't make the producers of the show racist. The same can be said of the Dukes if Hazard tv series. I never saw black actors on the show but in not going with racist card statement. You're off line dude

I'm a CHRISTIAN- representing people of color as HOMOSEXUALS IS OFFENSIVE. God calls homosexuality an abomination.

They had blacks in the Dukes of Hazard, but they weren't gay.

Monte I don't like soap operas and I never watched this show that closely. I've only seen one of two episodes.

Common dude people today don't put any thought into religion especially the producers of tv shows. You are quoting bible verses and what you say is true but a good percentage of society have accepted the gay lifestyle and sexuality as normal and you saying that black and gay co stars in a show is discriminatory and racist is a wrong analysis

Mich, kiddo- don't take this question so seriously. I'm asking a question about a teen soap opera that I didn't like. You aren't even old enough to recall this show.

If you're a true Christian Mavericker then you know Jesus taught us to have respect, love, and compassion for our neighbor no matter what race, color, or religion. Remember that Jesus ate with sinners. You nor I are any different than gays in this world for we were born sinners. Don't succumb to hippocracy and don't just lest you be judged. That's what good book says

Monte, it was OFFENSIVE to me that the ONLY BLACKS OR PEOPLE OF COLOR I saw on that show were GAYS. That's what I was mad about.

The Bible also says to HATE SIN AND REBUKE SIN OPENLY.

Mich, I apologize if I offended you. I never followed this show that cloesly- I hated it. I wasn't aware it was on in reruns. I am sure you watched reruns of old '80s shows at some point.

You trying to be funny, SBC? YES THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH BEING GAY. It is written, homosexuals and the sexually immoral are not going to inherit God's Kingdom.
