…I find that some of the newer television shows I really like still only allow one black at a time.*
There’s only one on Six Degrees…
…but they’re an Irish mob in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen, so yeah…that’s understandable. Besides, The Black Donnellys get a pass for having the word “black” in the title. (And I’ve got Irish blood, so I’ll cut them some slack there, too, because I am getting some representation.)
Not saying that we’ve gotta be present in clumps on every tv show, but it does seem a bit odd when there’s only one of us in a particular setting. The black person ends up looking shoehorned in, just for PC’s sake. It’s far less suspect if there’s none of us at all.
