About the other Girls controversy

Illustration for article titled About the other Girls controversy

I'm glad that the latest article on Girls mentioned the race issue. Judd Apatow's response seemed especially asinine.

A few people have said "but what about Seinfeld or Friends ?" Well, people did kind of point out the whiteness of both shows.

But it got me thinking. There are several shows which have racially diverse casts (Grey's Anatomy, CSI, SVU, Community, Parks And Rec). However, these all take place in workplaces or schools. In fact, I can think of very few shows with interracial casts where the main focus is friends or family (Modern Family, New Girl, Curb Your Enthusiasm).

In other words, we can work together but when we're done work, we don't hang out together. That's fucking depressing.
