could John Latham be an anagram? And presumed suicides in movies are rarely suicides.
Why would you sound racist??? See this is what happens when we live in a PC Liberal World.

Because I would be stereotyping the black guy in the black neighborhood. I'm normally not very "PC" but I still don't want to offend anybody with my kind of far-fetched idea.

You must be thinking this is set in South Africa during the Apartheid era when they had pass laws or perhaps in Israel?


In California there are not "parts" of town designated for certain races.


and if you were paying attention Micheal was an Architect / Builder that had lived in Manhattan or some place like that?


I am not trying to come down on you like a ton of bricks.
I have looked at things the same way that you did and have challenged my reasoning, to set aside bias (I did not even think I had).



So when we think of Michael, we should describe him as a well educated Architect/ builder, indeed he used these skills on the island.
When he is not on the Island it should be assumed that he would be successful and living in what most would not call a "black part of town".

I didn't mean to sound rude or crass or anything in my statement, but if you think about it this way:

Most of the people on the island had nothing to go back to, and if you look at that fishy "suicide" report, maybe you can assume Michael was on the run from something or someone. If this is in L.A., I think it's safe to say that there are still ethnic ghettos or just ethnocentric places inside town. It would make sense for someone to try and blend in if they are hiding.

Michael is a successful architect like you said, and under any other circumstances it would be wrong to group him as the "black guy in the black part of town." Again, I'm sorry if it sounded like I was generalizing and sounded overly ignorant, I really did not mean to.

I don't think you were rude or a bad person at all

we all have bias'

I know I still have them and
I am about 3 times your age
(I looked at your profile, my bd is June 17)

My guess is John Lantham is John Locke

if this ten years in the future
all he had to do was impregnate someone a few years before the plane crash

More like is it our business to know a persons status a person is a person. Why to we have to mark some one or generalize?

but lets not turn this into a FYM topic.
