For Discussion: Writing Team For Orange Is The New Black Appears To Be All White

OITNB Writers

The group of writers behind Netflix’s hit show, Orange is the New Black released a photo on Twitter that has people up in arms.  Judging from the photo it seems not a single woman or man of color is a part of the team that tells the stories of several women of color who are incarcerated. 

Many have praised the show for featuring black and brown women as fleshed out characters rather than the stereotypical roles women of color have had to settle for over the years.  So does it matter if the entire writing team is indeed white?  Speak on it.
