"NEWFIE RACISM"
18 April 2002 | by (Newfoundland) – See all my reviews

I watched the Random Passage saga and, yes, it was syrupy. There were two unfortunate things that stand out about it. Number one was that as much as they tried to portray the dire circumstances that many settlers in Newfoundland faced, the role played by the merchants was understated. They kept the people in a constant despair and debt in order to maintain their monopoly.

The second unfortunate was that Capt. Picard never came on the Holo-deck for even one scene!!!! I think that after the all the heart string pulling it would have made the over 4 hours of footage worth it. I would have been priceless if Jean-Luc would have stepped into the fishing stage and remarked "You're needed in Engineering."

That's about all except for the commentary on this site. The author mentioned the stereo-typing of the Irish and the "Newfies". Well guys, contrary to popular belief it's not a nice word. It was a slang term applied to us when the Americans had bases in Newfoundland during the second world war and it wasn't meant to be anymore flattering than "Kraut" or "Limey".
