A blog in Jezebel by Dodai Stewart raises a touchy subject. Why does Mindy Kaling only date white men on her show, more specifically white blonde men?
Stewart praises Kaling for her body positive message, for breaking barriers for Indian Americans and South Asian Americans, and for her sometimes feminist message on the Mindy Project.
Still, the fact that Mindy only dates white men on the show bothers her. Interracial dating and marriage have become a fact a life, as reported recently by NPR. But Stewart wishes Mindy would date men of color on the show as well.
What do you think. Is this outdated thinking? Or is there something to this? What message is Hollywood sending when Mindy only dates white guys? Read Stewart’s blog in Jezebel and sound off below.
