Check out this New York Times piece about the representation of interracial families on television. “Television is still both a barometer of social change and an evolutionary force that can help change cultural attitudes. So it’s hard not to wonder whether the simple lack of depictions of normal, mixed-race families and well-adjusted biracial offspring in popular culture is in part responsible for the reaction to the Cheerios commercials,” writes Jenna Wortham. I count Parenthood as a good example of a dynamic interracial family. And even though Modern Family is a comedy, the heart of the show about an interracial family is good!
