Re: Why I Wrote A Mad Men Episode With Negroes, by Erika Alexander
But to be fair, in the first few seasons the show did have some stories with blacks. It has only been in the last couple of seasons that it has appeared that there are no blacks on Mad Men.
Now that's just not true.
I believe there was a (short) subplot at the beginning of the last season. And Don Draper's secretary is black and is around regularly (remember the night she spent in Peggy's apartment last season?).
Travel's fatal to prejudice, bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can't be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's life.
