I think that unfortunately, once again,Whoopi did not understand what the woman was talking about. Actually, her use of” Friends “ as an example is a perfect one. If you took the written scripts and had an African American cast I don’t think it would be a good depiction of AA friendships. And if you took the scripts of “Living Single” with a Caucasian cast ...so on and so on..... It doesn’t mean that that the actors are not black enough. Totally lost the point.
And I agree with Joy, I watch a lot of British television also and do see a degree of inclusion that is comforting.
