How come you never see any really pissed off ghosts of black people in movies, or on TV? You think with all that slavery and lynchings there would be a lot of pissed off black ghosts.

Even the supposedly "real" ghosts you see on Unsolved Mysteries are always white.

I thought I remember seeing an episode of The X-Files with black ghosts but they were extremely nice and well mannered. The "Good Ones" if you will.

They are less scary than white ghosts because you can't see them in the dark.

Why are the Prestons always helping the family on the Haunted Hathaways? Why can't white families solve their own problems without having to rely on dead black people? Those poor dead black kids lost their mother & their lives and now they have to babysit your white rear end? Get shrunk down & almost ghost drown in a bottle of milk? Obama's post-racial afterlife was a lie!

For the same reason the world isn't full of pissed off ghost cows from cows we turned into hamburgers

1) livestock don't leave ghosts
2) ghosts are not real

She is a cat of significant gravy.

In Supernatural there was only one black character that was not evil and she was in the worst episode of the series. Every other black character always turns out to be evil. If you want some more racism the Jaffa are the bad race for a while in Stargate SG-1 and every single one of them are black or are dark skinned enough to be lynched by the KKK.

Most ghosts are white. This isn't because white people are "better" or "smarter." It's because more white people can afford to be ghosts.
