[The reaction Sisko has in Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang towards the invitation to help Vic really breaks immersion for me. I understand the actor makes a point about the civil rights movement. But in the 24th century he should not be emotional about an injustice 300 years in the past, nor should separate himself from non-black humans like he does with Kasidy. Humans are one species. This would be as if I would emotionally object to go to a renaissance-fair because my ancestor suffered under serfdom.]

I’m made really uncomfortable by this confession and may be wrong, but I’m guessing that the confessor is not a black person. Because it’s the same argument people used today by racist white people against black people being upset about slavery. If that pulls you out of immersion, that tells me way more about them and their racist perspectives than the show.

Check your privilege.
