What do you think? Do you plan to check out the Promised Land TV series on ABC when it eventually premieres?
No. I never plan to watch an ABC Network series again since they unceremoniously cancelled Stumptown when it was the best freshman series on the air at the time! They renewed Stumptown and then they waited 4 months after renewing the series before pulling out the rug on the cast and crew which left them in limbo which made it difficult for them to get other jobs!
Latinx means Latino r we say brown Peoples I like watching shows like this I know it will be good.
What is a “Latinx?”
It’s a gender-neutral term for a person of Latin American origin or descent.
Many find it offensive, I am a bit surprised they used it. Its a gender neutral stand in word used by people that are mostly non latino.
