Where's the Diversity on Television?

Thursday, August 11, 2011

When ABC pulled the plug on George Lopez's eponymous sitcom in 2007, the Mexican-American comedian said, "TV just became really, really white again." Five years later, TBS has announced it will cancel Lopez's late night talk show due to slumping ratings. And in the five year interim, television doesn't appear to have gotten any more diverse.

Jorge Rivas, multimedia editor and pop culture blogger at ColorLines Magazine, talks about the disconnect between our multi-racial society and how we are portrayed in the media.

I'm not sure that Geroge Lopez with his homophobic "mas puto" skits is any great loss to mainstream television.
