Re: Why I Wrote A Mad Men Episode With Negroes, by Erika Alexander

The woman who wrote the editorial in the OP is completely correct, it's absolutely ridiculous how white US television is for the most part. But I agree with the people who said Mad Men is different.

I think if they had major storylines about black people in that scenario, they would inevitably be much more sympathetic characters than the people the show is actually about, and that would distract from the storytelling.
