Do you think it's racist when there are only white people in TV shows/movies?

There are tv/movies, office, store, school with only one race like (only African american), (only Chinese), (only Indian), (only Japanese), (Only Russian).

Not all place have people from many race.

Some place, city, country have few people who are not white. Even in USA, England, Canada.

Like people say tv show Friends is racist, because it have only white people.

    No.

    Racism is believing one race is innately inferior to another or hating another person because of their race.

    Having a TV show or movie with only white people, which basically only happens in Europe, is not racist at all.

    Is having a TV show or movie with only black people racist? Of course not!

    At the end of the day, the media in most Western countries is private... meaning that individuals or companies own pieces of the media, not the government. And since most Western societies are capitalist, as well as predominantly white, there are naturally going to be more white people int he media because there are more white people in the country... people tend to like seeing their own people, so of course, in a capitalist society, the private companies will be supplying that demand for media with mostly white people. That is why the media is typically representative of the population of a country.

    I think it's foolish when they shove a Black guy into the story that doesn't actually belong there, especially in period pieces when Blacks and Whites would never be friends.

    There are TV shows/movies with other races, and even if such were not the case, it would still fail to meet the definition of racism, so no. Twice.

    Your "Friends" comment.False, just as your entire premise.
