    The only show on the CW where there is an interracial relationship between a bm and ww where no one seemed to be bother by it was on arrow with diggle and his wife. I believe there was a short lived one on the flash between kid flash and earth 2 flash, but they ended that since the actor came out as gay.

    Also, there seems to be some sort of budding romance between jimmy olsen and lena luthor on supergirl, so we will see.

    I'm assuming the only CW shows you watch are the DC shows, right? Because those aren't the only BMWW IRR that have been on CW shows.


    I haven't seen last week's (S03E05) or this week's episode (S03E06) of "Supergirl" yet, but I definitely peeped this in the first couple episodes of the season.

    He came out as Bi and the romance ending had more to do with the actress getting a Series Regular role on another show. Granted they way it ended was poor....

    But yes Diggle and his wife is the only real romance. Wally was kinda puppy love with no confirmed sex.....Jax (The Black Part of Firestorm) has had even less romance, he has had like a one off... Supergirl, James not at all since moving over to CW. The record has been piss poor but maybe it will get better seen Andrew Kreisberg is out.

    Yeah, I only watch the DC shows and a show called craxy ex gf. So, I am not familiar with the other stuff. I will watch supergirl later on today, So, hopefully they go somewhere with it.

    Yeah, I was thinking about that last week. Jac was talking about getting laid and I was like, "when?". They desexualized the hell out of him, but keep the white guys having sex with the black women on the show. Even he bisexual character got laid pretty often.

    Yeah Stein hasnt but come on he is an old white guy, no one expects romance....and Rory well you know....even the newer white guy has gotten more action then Jax when Jax is OG its pathetic.

    I haven't been watching that much of this season. But that is a bit surprising, I still think they are very messy with the James Olsen Character. He has had so many roles on that show it's like they don't know what to do with him since they ended those short lived relationships between him and Lucy and him and Kara. Should've went back to Lucy if they didn't want him with Kara.

    I agree. That brother is all over the place. Now he is guardian/catco interim CEO/whatever the hell else. At least the character an multitask.

    Melissa Benoist, responded about the sexual misconduct allegations by stating that she is in a show that stands for equality, feminism and other things.

    Well, if Supergirl was about all these things, especially equality, why couldn't James Olsen remain in a relationship with Kara? The writers made James,a guy whom, is a good friend to Superman, a guy who stood in the background of their friendship and he acted like he was a jilted lover. He got involved with Lucy Lane and things were good but not great. It would have been better if James stayed with Kara. But, like Superman and Lois Lane, there are complications that get in the way such as an enemy's attack.

    If the sequel to Wonder Woman includes Diana's romance with a black man whom Diana admires for his strength of character and physical strength, will the man die trying to protect Diana in the film like he did in the comics?

    Well the show is a feminist show, but more so a liberal(political) one where they try a little too hard. I caught the last episode it looks like they ended Alex's relationship as well(for now.) I seen where clips where it looks like they could lead to a relationship with James Olsen and Lena Luthor. I don't know how that would work they are two totally different people.

    Not a chance they add Trevor Barnes in the sequel, remember Wonder Woman is a movie made by political feminist too. The only "alternative" relationship they'll campaign for and would want are lesbian relationships. Did you see the wonderwoman SNL skit? They'll want a lesbian relationship if they decide to give her another relationship in the sequel.

    I haven't seen SNL in a long time. Lesbianism wouldn't be an impossibility because Diana was raised around women and the Greek goddess Lesbos may have been one of those goddesses other than Hera. So it is not a far stretch.

    Glad I'm not the only one who noticed that. Also anyone notice how the CW overall glorifies white male sociopathic behavior. Nearly every show has a white male who murders people and everyone forgives and moves on.
    Green Arrow has Slade who murdered Oliver's mother right in front of him and now all is forgiven?
    Legends of Tomorrow has Rory who killed his family and he's some how a hero now no questions asked?
    Last season of Flash they were all ready to forgive time remnant Barry right after he killed HR like it didn't happen literally hours before.
    Don't get me started on The Vampire Diaries or The Originals they just piled up the bodies and no one cared as long as they felt bad about it.
    Even on Supernatural where Sam opened the final seal to hell after being told numerous times don't trust demons stay away from demon blood and killed thousands in the process but hey he feels bad so lets move on.
    Rarely do you see women do this unless they're villains ie Katherine on VD. And you definitely NEVER see this with black characters or any other people of color.
    Food for thought

    It was too bad, because I was sitting there and drooling over him and would love to see him without his shirt on together with a woman.

    Yeah that was kind of my point by mentioning the SNL sketch, and in this day in age they will go there than add Trevor Barnes. Plus we aren't there that far with IR between a bm and ww. The Mountain Between Us was the first mainstream movie with an mainstream white actress in a starring role involved in a IR romance. Wonderwoman is an obvious bigger movie. Not there yet.

    What about A United Kingdom? That film came out before The Mountain Between Us. Before them was the screwball romantic comedy Jump Tomorrow.

    Keyword is mainstream. Kate Winslett is an Academy Award Winning Actress that has been in some big movies. Rosamund Pike is a VERY good actress and A United Kingdom is her biggest film from a critically stand point so far. But Kate is bigger in Hollywood than Rosamund.

    You mean known in Hollywood. Rosamund Pike has been around for some time. Maybe not as long as Kate Winslett, but she has been busy.

    Yeah, it seems like only the white people are allowed to have sex and relationships on the show.
