The condescending, patriarchal attitude liberals have toward minorities is so offensive and arrogant that they don't even realize how their 'progressive' social policies actually hold minorities back.
As a progressive liberal, I resent this remark. I don't want to get into a political discussion; this is not the place for that. But you need to consider that your views are not shared by everyone on this board.

The Wish was a very powerful episode and a bit daring for 1969. Michael certainly did deserve an Emmy for this. Black actors, themselves had trouble getting good roles at that time. Things have improved, greatly, but still have a long way to go.

I have never seen this episode before until today although I am an avid fan. It is a wonderful one. Being a black woman I think it captured the feeling that blacks have, even today ( and I'm sure even more during the time that this episode was written). When I saw that it was written and directed by ML I really wanted to like it, and I did. It made me happy to see that he had a heart for social inequality such as Pernell Roberts did.

An excellent episode. Kudos to Michael. He did a great job with the camera. The musical score was really good too.
Is that all you can think about at a time like this, cake???

In the later episodes, social inequity was a frequent theme. I agree that "The Wish" is a fine episode.
