Hire the posse

HERE is my mes­sage to Ge­orge Lopez: Stop en­cour­ag­ing the racial di­vide, have pride and be happy that your show lasted five years, far longer than most.

If, in th­ese fran­tic times of po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness and hy­per­sen­si­tiv­ity to race, a trail­blaz­ing Latino-led se­ries is can­celed by a ma­jor net­work, it’s not about where you’re from, it’s the di­min­ish­ing profit mar­gin. Peo­ple were no longer that in­ter­ested in your show.

I’D like to sug­gest that you re­place your cur­rent movie re­view­ers with the Sum­mer Movie Posse [“A Very Tough Crowd,” by Pa­trick Gold­stein, May 11]. Not only are Clara, Milena, Si­mona, Adam, Ryan and Tris­tan pithier, more in tune with the au­di­ence and far less pre­ten­tious than your reg­u­lars, but, keep­ing in mind the news­pa­per’s fi­nan­cial woes, I bet they’d work a lot cheaper.
