Corrie introducing first black family to be 'realistic'. To be realistic should it be comprised of drug dealers, prostitutes, and gangsters?

No, that would be racist. Instead they will be doctors, solicitors and headteachers, oh and footballers, you know, the kind who rush to live in a working class street of terraces in Manchester.
Gotta keep it real, bro.Source(s): There have been black characters in the past, taxi drivers and hairdressers

No, because many black people are NOT drug dealers, prostitutes, and gangsters. Do you realize that there are white people who are all those types of people.

NO, not all black families consist of dodgy characters and to portray black families as such, would probably cause outrage.
Corrie has already portrayed Child grooming and child abuse and drug taking and murder (more than once) and Gay relationships, wife beating, and all the Soaps now seem to compete with each other to see which one shows the most outrageous happenings and gains the largest viewing ratings.
None of the soaps are now very realistic ( like they used to be many years ago) as in the REAL world, no community suffers so many outrageous catastrophes all the time, like they do in soapland. Jmo.Source(s): (UK)

Realistic, since when has programs such as Corrie been realistic, especially in the last 20 years.
Wake-up call, working class streets that the Corrie producers like to portray don't exist any more, they'll all gone, how many of you people have a pub in your street, nowadays your lucky if there's one within easy walking distance, or should that be staggering distance.
Corrie, realistic, my foot.

Yes. Which it is. In order to be really really realistic, the cast of Coronation Street are always recruited from the available drug dealers, prostitutes, and gangsters. As those of us who remember the old Manchester Press Club could confirm.

No, they should all gain higher qualifications and become Directors of FT 100 companies

One of em will be gay, another will murder someone (then bury't body under't cobbles) and the parents will continually cheat on each other. Then a long-lost brother/sister, hitherto never even mentioned, will turn up in a year.
You know, just like real life really.
