I know JustJared probably just copy/pasted a portion of AMC’s press release that went out this morning into a blog post…. But there are SO many issues with this. First off, it’s wrong.
AMC’s press release and the blogger apparently FORGOT about Sheila White, the black woman Kinsey the copy editor dated & went to Mississippi with to register black voters in season 2. In fact, the actress who plays White was interviewed by AMC about being “Mad Men‘s first major African-American character”.
Did AMC think that Sheila was a domestic worker since she was a white man’s girlfriend in the 1960s? Doubt it, although it could be argued.
Luckily, the commenters called out JustJared. But who will call out AMC?
