Marta Kaufmann, writer of Friends, says Friends wasn't diverse enough

LINK

Another "regret" in Hollywood after becoming filthy rich, and then puts her name, as a Jewish woman, on an African-American studies scholarship.

Narcissism disguised as good will.






quote:

"Friends" cocreator Marta Kauffman admitted that she now feels "embarrassed" about the show's lack of diversity and is donating $4 million to an African and African American studies department in Boston in order to make amends.



quote:

"It was after what happened to George Floyd that I began to wrestle with my having bought into systemic racism in ways I was never aware of," Kauffman said. "That was really the moment that I began to examine the ways I had participated. I knew then I needed to course-correct."



quote:

The TV producer said she will pledge $4 million to her alma mater, Brandeis University, to establish The Marta F. Kauffman '78 Professorship in African and African American Studies. The fund will support a scholar studying Africa and the African diaspora and assist the department to recruit more expert scholars and teachers, as well as provide new opportunities for existing students.

I agree, the show should be taken off the air so as to not expose anyone to it ever again. All of society would benefit.

White guilt can be expensive..

Side Note: Why is it you only hear this kind of shite from white people?

White woman guilt is one of the strangest phenomenons I've ever seen. And it's also dangerous because they are destroying the US.

So let's establish a scholarship in an entirely worthless domain. Unreal how clueless the left is.

Hollywood people don't hate being rich. This is Marta Kaufmann making sure no one comes after her or her money. She's already made it and has absolutely no reason other than to look good to do this. She isn't at risk of losing any jobs or getting canceled. If she really felt bad she wouldn't attach her stupid name to an African-American studies grant and she would have made the donation private.
