That argument doesn't make any sense. that's the same as saying "take away the iambic pentameter and all Shakespeare has is an odd rhyme pattern and flat storytelling with boring characters." Of course if you take away the defining characteristic of a show or other comparable work it will fall flat. Once again, RWBY wasn't intended to be groundbreaking; it wasn't meant to redefine storytelling.
On to your other points, how would Blake's ribbon from your suggestion be anything BUT cliche. Seriously, " ...the ribbon belonged to a good faunus friend or something and she wore it in memory of her friend who died in a human extremist attack or something."; this is a prime example of one of the most worn out cliches in the book. "dark mysterious character has a memento of a dead friend who died fighting for a cause." How can you argue against the "cliches" in RWBY while insisting that one of the oldest cliches in existence be a better substitute?
As for them not defining the 'racism' in RWBY, how more obvious did it need to be? Just because Monty didn't slap it in your face immediately like Tumblr Social Justice Warrior doesn't mean it wasn't handled well. There was more than enough information supplied to infer that there was racial tensions between faunus and humans when they introduced the faunus into the storyline.

So the defining characteristic of the show is combat? Guess that justifies my disdain of the bad storytelling, since a good story isn't what the show is supposed to be about. Thanks for confirming that, I'll keep it in mind for future debates

That was an example of something that wasn't immensely predictable. It was supposed to be a touching moment. Instead I saw something that was SUPPOSED to be sad and just kind of shrugged at my monitor. Dark character wearing a momento is not a cliche I've ever seen in media. Find it on TVtropes and I'll believe you. Otherwise, I will consider what you are saying a blind defense.

Show. Don't tell. We don't need it to be hammered on our face. We need to see SOMETHING rather than be told something. I can't give a shit about racial issues when they apparently don't go past some rare name-calling. How deep does it go? Are we talking seperate but equal? Are we talking slavery? Or is it just random name-calling from jackass citizens like Cardin?

I felt that the trailers were more to showcase the bad-assery of the fight scenes, not to show how grim, dark, and edgy the show would be

Remove the fight scenes from the show, and you have little to nothing left besides awful pacing.

Prime example: Blake's first defining moment is her faunus reveal. Couldn't have waited until she was established as a character. Couldn't bother to establish the exact measure of the 'racism' that is present in their universe. Couldn't have it be a trick, like as if she was a human fighting for faunus rights, and the ribbon belonged to a good faunus friend or something and she wore it in memory of her friend who died in a human extremist attack or something. CAN'T BE IMAGINATIVE OR ORIGINAL.

NOPE. Had to be predictable shit with no pacing.

IDK, I thought It'd be horrible because my little bro watches it all the time, but honestly it's not that bad. Sure, it isn't RT's greatest project, and some of the voice acting could use some major improvement, but all in all I enjoy it.

I just expected more from someone like Monty is all.

Not only that but the Trailers made it look kind of edgy and somewhat grim. Like Monty *cough*.

Instead, we get a saturday morning cartoon.
