You seem to be talking about an in-story depiction of racial and cultural integration of the the ad firm. The subject of the discussion is whether or not or why there have not been stories featuring blacks and how those stories might be presented.The gradual integration of the firm is a storyline that could move forward simultaneously and separately from other stories involving blacks, Jews, women, etc.
The show is about the people in the firm. That would make the two rather related, no?
My point was that the gradual integration of the firm, which is a background storyline, is not the only way minorities can be worked into the show.
