I've been there, I see a rainbow everywhere. Is it because the media giants want to white wash out the experiences of black and brown women? Or is it because they think white women will not watch the show or read the book if the central character is a black woman?
There's another aspect of Girls that feels worth noting -- its uniform worldview. Both the worlds of Girls and the one of my religious childhood are insular and tribal. Both have moral codes that seem to the inhabitants to be universally true while in actuality they are culturally specific.
That was a rough ride, "Girls" fans, but if the last 30 minutes of Season 2 are any indication, things may just be looking up for the the fictional Brooklynites we know and love ... or maybe love to hate.
