If 'Walter White' Had Been 'Walter Black' And Other Observations On White Privilege In TV

Oh, boy. Yeah ... I kind of can't see it going the same way for African-American characters as it did for Caucasian ones.

There are a lot of mixed messages going on in the world today about what black Americans face, and there's a lot of resistance to the term "white privilege" from many of the very people who benefit from it.

Humor is a great way to try to bring some of these points to light because laughing is cathartic. While a funny video concept won't change anyone's mind completely, I think it *can* give us all something to think on awhile. Would your favorite bad-boy TV shows have been the same if the lead protagonist had been black? What a marvelous question!
