American TV Getting Whiter

American television is notoriously devoid of racial diversity, and the small screen will reportedly be getting even whiter next season, as sitcoms, a recent haven for minority casts, continue to lose their place in prime time lineups to cheap-and-easy reality shows. The UPN network will continue to air multiple shows featuring all-minority casts, but among networks that viewers actually watch in anything approaching respectable numbers, blacks and Latinos might as well not exist.
