    @MeredithOD Actually there was a lot of concern before the show went on the air. The studio execs didn’t like that he was Cuban and said that America would believe them as a couple because of their cultural differences, but of course that became one of the big appeals of the show.

    But like angrydwarf said, he was lighter skinned so it wasn’t controversial. In the fifties there was basically two races, “white” or “black”. Most hispanics counted as white.

    @MeredithOD In all seriousness, I think it Ricky was too light, and because many people don’t see Hispanic/White as interracial…more intercultural. If Ricky didn’t open his mouth, you’d assume he was American.

    I know it doesn’t really make much sense…but there you go. And I say this as a white guy with a senorita of my own. :)

    I love how TV and movies from this era could make you laugh, cry, or show some other kind of emotion effortlessly because the performances were effortless and tastefully done

  13. MeredithOD says:

    @num1Jaysta idk probably…and that’s why I’m surprised that they weren’t or aren’t often referred to in such a way…I never hear it mentioned. I hear ppl say that she was older than him…but never discussion on their race.

  14. num1Jaysta says:

    @MeredithOD They were the first on tv werent they?

  15. MeredithOD says:

    How come America didn’t really consider Lucy and Ricky an interracial couple?
