Telemundo—still the whitest TV in town

While I was doing 7 miles on my exercycle this morning, I watched an Irish nun give an excellent presentation of Matt. 24. Wow. That will scare the daylights out of you. Then I switched to Telemundo, a Spanish language cable channel owned by NBC which is owned by Comcast. I watched a bit and see that all the stories are exactly the same as any other MSM. Even the Covid19 scare features.

Except. Culture shock. Everyone is white! I forget how integrated all our entertainment and media shows are until I see one that isn't. And such beautiful news folk. My goodness. The women especially are stunning, but it clearly shows the power of "colorism" or "shadeism". Even the actors in the commercials are white. But if they are addressing Spanish speaking Americans why are there no black, brown, Asian, Indian, gay or disabled people like I see on other media?
