11157: Mad Men And Racial Profiling.

The latest episode of AMC series Mad Men Season 6 failed to show any people of color at all, opting instead to only mention their existence. It happened when Peggy Olson came home to discover her boyfriend, Abe, had been attacked at the subway station. Abe refused to identify his assailants to the police officer writing the crime report, and he later revealed to Peggy that he didn’t want the cops profiling every Black guy in the neighborhood. This is the second week in a row that the program has depicted Blacks as criminals. Yep, Mad Men continues to perfectly reflect the advertising industry.
