On Where (My) Girls At?

I'm about to become the most hated person on this board but honestly I feel like the addition of a black character is forced and unrealistic much in the same way I would feel if you added a token white character on something like a different world, it would just feel like you're trying way too hard to make everyone happy in the most transparent way possible. Personally, I found girls to be very take it or leave it just in the fact that I live my life I don't necessarily need it played out for me on my television and, in that sense, the show can become rather tedious. I was honestly a bit bored. Maybe I'm just not appreciating the wonders of minimalism but personal opinion aside, there's no way every market demographic going to be represented in every show. To put it crudely, while you're sitting here bitching there's no black girls on the show, there's an Asian graphic art student in Williamsburg miffed that the closest she has to a relatable character in prime time television is that one guy on Hawaii 5-0. I wouldn't put that kind of expectation on one little show is al.
