JUST DON'T WATCH IT! Holy shit!
It's a show about 4 white girls and their troubled little white girl lives. I'm not going to cry if those four white girls don't have a minority friend.
And again, yes, the show has only aired 2 episodes. It's silly. It's the whole "trying so hard to not be racist that it goes all the way around to being racist again" scenario that is also prevalent in our culture.
Too much is being made of this quote. I don't think the writers are trying to portray a character who is the voice of a generation, rather a character who in her youthful narcissism thinks she could be the voice of a generation.There's been a lot of pressure on Girls to be the voice of a generation — or "a voice of a generation," as Dunham's character Hannah puts it in the first episode. Its writers certainly seem to have captured my generation's awkwardness about race.
