I first watched American Idol several years ago during its first few seasons. During those years the show was incredibly diverse. There where Black people, Boricuas, Asians, Mexican Americans, people of Middle Eastern decent, Hawaiians, people of mixed ancestry and more. it was great. American Idol was the most diverse show on network TV.
Fast forward to last night. The ladies were performing and out of eight women there was one Woman of Color. A Black girl who I think is about 16 or 17 years old. The rest of the women were White.
What ever the case I am really disappointed that a show that was so wonderfully diverse now looks like almost every other show on network TV.
