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

Perhaps it is worth repeating that there is no reason to believe that Don Draper's entire life would be free of African Americans or issues about African Americans.

Also, political campaiging amongst the monied set, as well as politicians seeking advertising expertise, would have intersected Draper's professional life at some point.

Nothing about Mad Men's mise en scene or alleged thematic preoccupations requires whitewashing.
