The very white poetry of 'Mad Men' | Capital New York

Here’s a great piece on the (off-screen) racial dynamic of the “Mad Men.” 

I’m one of those white guys who loves “The Wire,” and I think that calling McNulty “sage” proves that Boone stopped watching after the pilots cold open. That said, he raises a very interesting point about what White Viewers want to watch, and the point where our empathy turns the corner into condescension. This is a great read.
