If 'Friends' had more minorities, back in the 90s, ppl would have called it racist

Excerpt: "Friends nostalgia is in full swing amid the HBO Max reunion, but there's one issue creators are still having to address: the show's lack of diversity."


I'm calling horseshit on the above 'woke' statement.

If 'Friends' had a minority on the frontline of the show, esp back in the 90s, a majority of the ppl of that minority group would accuse that person of being white-washed and a sell out.

Yes, an East Asian on the show would be called a 'banana'.

An South Asian would be called a 'coconut'.

An Latino would be called an Anglo wannabe.

And the list goes on, so thus, I'm happy that "Jose Chang" was not on the show.

And then, every now and then, a person on the show like Joey, would be called a racist for poking fun at Jose Chang.

So in effect, it's better for everyone to be white and thus, they can rag on each other and it's all in good fun.

I remember when I was a kid and all these ppl were mad at Vanessa Williams because she was too light skinned to represent a black woman as Miss America.

So there you have it!

The fact this is even being talked about is pure Anti-White Racist Faggotry

Yes, and an inability to accept the alt-reality of the 90s, where if Ming Na Wen played Amy Chen, counter to Courtney Cox & Jennifer Aniston, she'd be called a Dragon Lady/Tiger Lily-wannabe and most definitely a 'banana' by other Asians.

The same if Kal Penn showed up, counter to Matt LeBlanc & David Schwimmer, he'd be a coconut or some ABCD.

Really it wasn't until the new Battlestar Galactica of the mid-2000s, where they were finally able to get people of color to act 'white' w/o bashlash from every ethnic group.

"Friends" had plenty of diversity:

It's never about any real diversity, it's only about shallow, visible differences the Church of Marxism wants to focus on. Mainly, skin color and sex.

The differences need to be bludgeons, not subtle, or dividing the public with them just won't work.

Think Saved by the Bell - Mario Lopez as the token minority.

I don’t recall any woke shinanigans

Another Diversity show: "Golden Girls"

Diversity was a Southern Belle, a Minnesota Dairyqueen, and a hardboiled Sicilian lady living under the same roof.

As far as I'm concerned, until the parents and grandparents of the 'people of color' could accept their descendants acting 'white', circa year 2000+, then it's better that most shows of the 80s and 90s were basically 'white-on-white' humor or 'black-on-black' like "Living Colour".
