On Where (My) Girls At?

After reading your post, I can understand your point, however, despite "races " (a word I HATE because it makes a really unexistant biological difference eternal in our minds), I prefer identify myself with a PERSONALITY, with a CHARACTER, than with the way someone looks... I loved the shows that portrayed afrodescendent diversity in characters, because THAT is the kind of show that go against stereotypes, but I don't feel a show has to include "ethnic diversity" for it to portray me... in other words: I would expect to be identified with a character despite her looks... if we still feel the NEED to see someone looking like us, we are perpetuating the difference in our minds and in everyone else's minds...
