Well im african american and using the term "thick" has never been insult in the black community. I dont prefer that body type or the stick thin body type. I prefer 4-8, which to me in the real world is thin but not too thin but thick still is not an insult. Dr. Torres does look "thick" to me. Alot of people use the term curvy for anyone a certain size but thats not accurate. There are girls that are size twos that I consider curvy and girls size 10's that aren't curvy at all but just wide. I havent seen Dr. Torres shape wise to know if she's curvy or not so thick fits her better. No she's not fat or even close to it but the girl is thick. Curvy is just a shapely body. Halle Berry is curvy. She has a waist that curves in beautifully and hips that stick out but she is still very thin. I doubt she's bigger than a 4, maybe size two.
This is such a fantastic show. Everyone who watches it loves it. It is culturally diverse but yet not in a way that makes the show seem like they are just trying hard to be politically correct. No one is potrayed as a "token" asian or token black person on this show and thats what I love. I would like it though if they had a black woman that was potrayed as sexy. I like Dr. Bailey and wouldn't want her replaced but there is alot of attractive black actresses that I wouldnt mind seeing one on this show.
