Week Four: Critical Frameworks Bechdel Test for Race Part II

This was an interesting experience becase my friends and I had tried to figure out how many predominantly white tv shows had more than two people of color in them. We came up with Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, Community, and Scrubs. We had no idea that this was being looked at in a scholarly manner.

For films, it’s definitely harder. I tried to think of any for five minutes without any help and was shooting blanks. The film industry could be (and is) racist. There’s no other way of putting. Whether saying audiences wouldn’t want to watch black people do things on the big screen or not being able to relate, it’s all veiled racism.
